Well, we're out of the winter and spring blahs as the summer movie season is now in full swing, with the fall festival and awards season right around the corner and one of the most anticipated films is Tomas Alfredson‘s “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.” The director's followup to "Let The Right One In" finds him working with a top shelf cast -- Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ciaran Hinds, Mark Strong, Svetlana Khodchenko, Toby Jones, John Hurt, Stephen Graham and Kathy Burke -- in an adaptation of John Le Carre‘s classic spy thriller that follows a British Intelligence operative whose task is to delve into the world of Cold War espionage and root out a Soviet mole in the Circus, the highest echelon in the British Intelligence Services.
A couple new pics from the film have surfaced, giving us a closer look at Hardy and Firth in the film. First up is more official look at Hardy following the set photo that surfaced late last year. The actor plays 'Tricky' Ricky Tarr, a British operative acquaintance of protagonist George Smiley, a "breathtakingly ordinary, anti-James Bond"-type character who will be played by Oldman. We also get our first look at Firth in the film was well as a larger look at the previously released pic of Oldman.
"Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy" has been invited to open the Venice Film Festival and Universal will release the film in theaters later this year. Bigger versions of all the pics below. [Moviepilot via JustJared/RopeOfSilicon]
