A Most Wanted Man

"You are looking at me, at us, but we don't exist. Not legally, not officially." After being set for a premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival later this month, Anton Corbijn's adaptation of John Le Carre's thriller A Most Wanted Man is finally being teased with an international trailer. Philip Seymour Hoffman shines as German spy Gunther Bachmann, a suspicious Chechen-Russian immigrant on the run in Hamburg. This looks just as good as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and maybe even more exciting. Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, Daniel Bruhl and Willem Dafoe are along for the ride. We'll definitely be catching this one in Park City later this month, so stay tuned to read our review (here) + the trailer (here).

Update! The original trailer has been removed and blocked online. However, the official A Most Wanted Man trailer is now available for viewing. Philip Seymour Hoffman Hunts Spies in A Most Wanted Man.

A Most Wanted Man is directed by Anton Corbijn (The American) and written by Andrew Bovell (Edge of Darkness), based on John Le Carre's novel of the same name. German spy Gunther Bachmann is tracking down Issa, a suspicious Chechen-Russian immigrant. Pressured by his colleagues to capture and interrogate his suspect as a Muslim terrorist, Bachmann instead asks for more time to carefully track Issa’s movements and his relationship with his German immigration lawyer, Annabel Richter. Using his secret contacts and keen skill, Bachmann uncovers a connection between a world-renowned Muslim philanthropist and a terrorist group and devises a brilliant ploy to expose the scheme. The film premieres at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival this month and Lionsgate is expected to release it in theaters sometime this year.

    More exciting than tinker tailor soldier spy? Is it also more exciting than watching paint drying or watching soccer?
    • Chuckee Knowlton
      ..or watching another Batman movie.
      • Nash
        Because the last few Batman-movies were boring...?

      Sorry, Lionsgate has been removing the trailer all over the place. We'll post the official trailer when it is made available by the studio.
      • Chuckee Knowlton
        Lionsgate must really want to sell this movie not allowing people to see the trailer.

          its such a stupid thing isn't it. They keep on doing it. I never watch a movie when they do that, I am already pissed off at it now.
          • Nash
            Exactly, they can put that Most Wanted Man where the sun don't shine. I'll spend my bucks on another movie...

    That's a really well paced trailer. Makes me want to watch the movie right now.

    Looks decent. However, I would much prefer they find some great European actors to play the role of Europeans, such as in WW2 movies where the Germans are played by Germans and speak to each other in German instead of Americans doing slightly less than convincing accents.
  • DAVIDPD
    Beautiful espionage done right!
  • Andrew DiDonato
    Ha, this is the second time I remember seeing a trailer get posted online for this movie before it was taken down! Damn, I'm looking forward to this film. Corbijn's Control and The American are brilliantly underrated Euro-flavored thrillers and I can't wait to see what he does in adapting le Carre. Kudos to whomever he chooses as his DP.
