Spider in the Web Trailer

"There are a lot of people out there who'd do anything to stop me from exposing the truth." Vertical Ent. has unveiled an official trailer for spy drama Spider in the Web, the latest film from Israeli filmmaker Eran Riklis (The Syrian Bride, Lemon Tree, Zaytoun, Shelter). This "riveting new spy drama in the vein of John Le Carré" stars Sir Ben Kingsley as an aging Mossad agent struggling to maintain his relevance. His bond with a younger operative sent to monitor him while he's on a secret mission in the heart of a troubled Europe is a reflection on human relationships as well as "on the Europe of today – fragile, troubled, under constant threats from the outside and in turmoil on the inside." Also starring Monica Bellucci, Makram Khoury, Filip Peeters, and Itay Tiran. This looks like a solid, action-y spy thriller with some big twists, but it also looks rather derivative without anything new to offer. Not much about this seems that interesting.

Here's the first official US trailer for Eran Riklis' Spider in the Web, direct from Vertical's YouTube:

Spider in the Web Movie

Adereth (Sir Ben Kinsgley), a once-lauded but aging field agent of the Israeli Mossad, is deemed past his prime by his superiors. Convinced that he’s been fabricating intelligence to maintain his relevance, they send a young operative, Daniel (Itay Tiran), to ensure that Adereth does not deviate from his mission to deliver crucial information he claims is waiting for him regarding a chemical weapons sale to a Middle Eastern dictatorship. That tip leads to the enigmatic Angela (Monica Bellucci), who is a target. A lover. An enemy. All? Neither? As the lines of trust are blurred, Adereth realizes the hunter may become the hunted in a world of mirrors and deceit. Spider in the Web is directed by veteran Israeli filmmaker Eran Riklis, of the films Zohar, Vulcan Junction, Pituy, The Syrian Bride, Lemon Tree, The Human Resources Manager, Dancing Arabs, Playoff, Zaytoun, and Shelter previously. The screenplay is by Gidon Maron and Emmanuel Naccache. Vertical will release Riklis' Spider in the Web in select theaters + on VOD starting August 30th.

Hopefully, this is not bad since it's good enough to be a perfect version of mindless fun...

You can't keep a good dog down. Until you can.

Seen a lot of pretty good and unique films with Ms. Bellucci in them...but this doesn't look like one of them. I thought this was rather pedestrian...or run of the mill, if you will. I doubt I'll even see it running any where. Bad title. Sounds like some American thing of 25 yrs. ago with Ashley Judd in it...lol...

Interesting how they don't even acknowledge Ben Kinsgley's academy award win anymore. Has he been at the bottom of the barrel for that long now?!?
