Philip Seymour Hoffman Hunts Spies in 'A Most Wanted Man' Trailer
Following a premiere at Sundance in January, the spy thriller A Most Wanted Man is heading to theaters this summer, marking one of the final performances from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. The film is an understated and reserved thriller in the vein of Michael Clayton and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, with Hoffman anchoring the film with one hell of a grizzled performance (read my review from Sundance here). The film also stars Rachel McAdams (whose German accent needs some work), Willem Dafoe, Daniel Bruhl and Robin Wright. It's a spectacular slow burn that is undoubtedly worth seeing. Watch below!
Here's the first trailer for Anton Corbijn's A Most Wanted Man, originally from Yahoo:
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 (Philip Seymour Hoffman) 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 premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and Lionsgate releases the film on July 25th.

This is why he'll be missed so much. One of my favorite actors and this looks like he's proven it again with this one. can't wait.
