See the First Poster for Spielberg's 'Bridge of Spies' with Tom Hanks
In the shadow of war, one man showed the world what we stand for. And that is? We'll find out in October, I suppose. Disney has debuted the first official poster for Steven Spielberg's latest film Bridge of Spies, starring Tom Hanks as an undercover CIA agent during the Cold War. It's a very basic, very stark poster, with Tom Hanks' face front and center flanked by the American flag and Soviet symbol. Yes, he's stuck in the middle, we get it. That's all there is though, no other context or imagery. Kind of weird. Anyway, I hope this means we'll see a trailer soon because the footage for this better be a heck of a lot better than the poster.

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.
