A Most Wanted Man

It's truly tragic to think that audiences only have two more Philip Seymour Hoffman performances to look forward to following the upsetting death of the actor earlier this year. He'll return as Plutarch Heavensbee in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I this fall, but next month everyone should go see A Most Wanted Man. This quiet, understated thriller features a stirring performance from a grizzled and perpetually smoking Hoffman as he leads a covert German intelligence organization tasked with hunting spies. It's the perfect slow-burning spy thriller, and a new trailer from across the pond has arrived. Watch!

Here's the new UK trailer for Anton Corbijn's A Most Wanted Man from eOne UK:

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.

I hadn't heard of this movie until I saw a previous trailer shown before The Rover and got excited. Looking forward to seeing it.

What's Seymour's accent? I love it.

His accent was a vaguely German Anthony Hopkins.
