Fantastic New Minimalistic Set of Posters for 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy'
The Secret is Out. We've seen an abundance of posters for Tomas Alfredson's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, the anticipated spy thriller starring Gary Oldman that's hitting UK theaters this month. But there's more, though this time these posters are unique, minimal designs created by Sir Paul Smith for charity (all profits are going to Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres) debuted via Creative Review. Smith consulted with Alfredson early on for the film, providing insights on 1970s London, including "the mood, colour and photographic approach to take." He has created four fantastic, iconic posters for the film, seen in full below.
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 December 9th in the US.
