"We need to have the conversation our governments can't." Disney has debuted the first trailer for Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies, formerly his "Untitled Cold War" thriller, starring Tom Hanks, an American lawyer recruited by the CIA during the Cold War to help rescue a pilot detained in the Soviet Union. This looks like Spielberg is back at his best, telling an intense but focused story of how one man had to make the right decisions to make sure our planet didn't fall into war (again). This footage looks dark but stunning, as expected, since Spielberg is working again with DP Janusz Kaminski. The cast includes Amy Ryan, Alan Alda, Sebastian Koch and many others. Get your first look at footage from the new Spielberg film below.
Here's the first official trailer for Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies, found on YouTube:
Bridge of Spies, originally titled St. James Place, is directed by the acclaimed filmmaker Steven Spielberg (of Lincoln, War Horse, The Adventures of Tintin and The BFG most recently) with a script originally by Matt Charman and rewritten by Oscar-winning writing/directing duo Joel & Ethan Coen. The film follows James Donovan, an attorney who negotiated the release of downed U-2 spy plane pilot Francis Gary Powers, who was held and interrogated by the KGB and imprisoned for espionage after being shot down for flying over Soviet airspace in 1960. Amy Ryan, Alan Alda and Mark Rylance also star in the DreamWorks film. Walt Disney's Touchstone Pictures will release Bridge of Spies in theaters this fall on October 16th, 2015.
