Domestic Preview For 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' Is A Thicker Trailer, Bolder, Fly

The Playlist By Gabe Toro | The Playlist September 10, 2011 at 8:45AM

Check out these slick-looking dudes in the "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" trailer. No one trusts anyone, no one is comfortable even walking around the corner, and everyone's got some sort of wicked coat. This feels like the sort of paranoid drunken nightmare someone has after passing out underneath a pile of GQ magazines in a smoking jacket. The John le Carré adaptation debuted earlier in the week at the Venice Film Festival, where we called it "incredibly rich and perfectly constructed," comments we're usually receiving, not giving, and opens in the U.K. next Friday, but the new clip is the first targeted at a U.S. audience.

Check out these slick-looking dudes in the "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" trailer. No one trusts anyone, no one is comfortable even walking around the corner, and everyone's got some sort of wicked coat. This feels like the sort of paranoid drunken nightmare someone has after passing out underneath a pile of GQ magazines in a smoking jacket. The John le Carré adaptation debuted earlier in the week at the Venice Film Festival, where we called it "incredibly rich and perfectly constructed," comments we're usually receiving, not giving, and opens in the U.K. next Friday, but the new clip is the first targeted at a U.S. audience.

The current trailer is a bit snappier than the international clips, while avoiding the usual trap of trailers sexing up the source material. Though, to be honest, half of the clips in this footage seem to be every moment a character begins to walk, giving the illusion that this is a movie of non-stop chasing. And while some of us haven't seen it yet, we're going to guess this isn't a stiff-upper-lip rendition of "Crank." "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" stars Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Toby Jones, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Strong, John Hurt, Ciarán Hinds and Stephen Graham and it opens domestically December 9th.
