Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Featurette

"I know who he is!" One of the many fall films coming up that's very very high on my anticipated list is Tomas Alfredson's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, the 70's spy thriller starring quite a fantastic cast. As the film hits UK theaters this month, marketing has been running strong, with multiple trailers, posters, and more. Our friends at Awards Daily found a new video featurette that includes some behind-the-scenes shots and interviews, including Colin Firth, Gary Oldman, John Hurt and Benedict Cumberbatch, even a few moments with John Le Carre himself. This looks so damn good, can't wait to see it, fire it up below!

Watch the new featurette for Tomas Alfredson's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, from YouTube:

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.

anything with Colin Firth, Gary Oldman and John Hurt in it is an automatically great film

I completely and totally agree.  Wouldn't it be great if Oldman won an Oscar this coming year?  Colin Firth winning it last year was long overdue and Oldman is even longer overdue.  Judging by the release date, they're pushing for the Oscars (Oldman for best actor, OH, and Colin Firth and John Hurt for best supporting actors? Yes please!).

I love how you're talking about Oscars for a movie, essentially no one has seen yet, like its a sure thing. The best part is you're probably right

Apparently you don't know the great reviews both Tom Hardy and Benedict Cumberbatch are getting for this movie.  Many have brought up the scene that Benedict has trying to get documents and one said he just about steals the movie with that one scene.  if you don't know who he is (Sherlock - beyond Great) you will.
