Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

Not too long ago the first trailer hit for Tomas Alfredson's adaptation of the 1979 miniseries Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and it looks like quite a fantastic spy thriller from across the pond. Now we have this cool first poster for the film featuring a pseudo-mosaic of Gary Oldman made up of words and numbers with the release date popping out right there in red. However, I think it's the names at the bottom of the poster that will get people's attention with an amazing cast that includes Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Ciaran Hinds, Jared Harris, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Strong and more. See the poster below!

Here's the first poster for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy courtesy of Empire:

Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy Poster

Set in the aftermath of the Cold War, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, and 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 Carreā€˜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.

Now this is going to be a movie. Finally. No cgi, no capes, no robots, just some good old cold war espionage. šŸ™‚

I am absolutely excited about this project. Sir Alec GuinnessĀ  thoroughly killed it in the original, so Oldman's got his work cut out for him.
