We love classy spy films. From James Bond through Harry Palmer through Jason Bourne, we just can't get enough of those sophisticated story lines, great action, twists and turns and espionage plots. Now we can look forward to what appears to be another great one: 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy,' the big-screen adaptation of John le Carré's Cold War novel about a mole at the very top of the British MI6 spy organization (The book was previously made into a miniseries, starring Alec Guinness, in 1979.)
The film is being directed by Tomas Alfredson ('Let the Right One In') and stars Gary Oldman as George Smiley, an MI6 agent pulled out of retirement to find the traitor. A great supporting cast includes Tom Hardy, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ciaran Hinds, Mark Strong, Svetlana Khodchenko, Toby Jones, John Hurt, Stephen Rea, Stephen Graham and Kathy Burke.
'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' will unspool at the Venice Film Festival at the end of August, open in the U.K. on Sept. 16, and arrive in the states Nov. 18. Check out the latest trailer after the jump.
