Check This Out: Another Coded UK 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' Poster
The Secret is Out! I'm just loving the imagery for this film, it's so sleek yet unique and fits perfectly with this film. As we're still waiting on the US release, our friends in the UK are getting all the treats. We featured the first teaser trailer and first poster for Tomas Alfredson's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy last month, now LoveFilm has debuted another brand new UK quad poster with more hidden codes and more Gary Oldman on it. Apparently there are words/codes hidden on the poster (they're hosting a contest to find them), which is just frickin' cool. The more we see from this, the more excited I get, expecting another hit from Alfredson.
Set in the aftermath of the Cold War, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, also described as a "breathtakingly ordinary" anti-James Bond, this tells the tale of a big spy hunt within the highest echelons of the British Secret Intelligence Service. Gary Oldman plays the lead role of George Smiley (once played in the 1979 TV mini-series by Sir Alec Guiness) a small, podgy spy who is charged with unearthing a mole. The film is an adaptation of John Le Carre's classic spy thriller that follows a British Intelligence operative who delves into the world of Cold War espionage. Focus Features has this scheduled for release November 18th in the US.
