Wow. Maybe it's just the way our brains are wired, but we just saw more fireworks from 70-odd seconds of middle-aged British character actors than we got across two-and-a-half-hours of empty spectacle in "Transformers: Dark of the Moon." The Guardian just debuted the first international teaser trailer for one of our most anticipated films of the rest of the year, Working Title's adaptation of John Le Carre's spy classic "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," the English-language debut of "Let The Right One In" director Tomas Alfredson, and it's easily one of the best trailers we've seen in an age.

Will this be the year the Academy finally gives Gary Oldman his due? It seems that those anticipating Tomas Alfredson's "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" think that this could be the film that finally sees the actor holding the Oscar gold. And even if it isn't, with a fantastic cast in place and some great source material to work with, this promises to be one of the highlights of the fall movie season.

All star cast? Check. Promising director? Check. Great story? Check. Frankly, it would take one helluva cock up to mess this one up, but "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" is one of our most anticipated films of the fall and with good reason.

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.

Film Described As "A Very Serious Oscar Contender"With the Cannes Film Festival lineup more or less set -- there will likely be a few more film announcements in the next couple of weeks as is usually the case -- the organizers at the Venice, Toronto, Telluride and other fall film festivals have already been making calls to try and get big-ticket films slotted into their festivals. Among the numerous high-profile films talked about as possibilities for Cannes was Tomas Alfredson's highly anticipated "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy." Before the lineup for Cannes was announced, reports circulated that it wasn't likely to make it as the film was still in the midst of post-production. As expected, a fall premiere is in the works and at least one major film festival has already come calling at least a month ago to land the film.

It would be safe to say that The Playlist is as sick of the just-wrapped-up awards season as anyone. The endless ceremonies, often with the same results, the blind guesses, the half-informed speculation; by the time it reaches March, we're kind of furious with the whole circus.

Sorry, ladies. For those of you hoping for some suave Eames-esque pics of English heartthrob Tom Hardy, you may want to look elsewhere. Some new set photos have arrived for the highly anticipated (at least by us) "Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy" and Hardy has gone blond (or at least is wearing a pretty convincing wig) is sporting a very period specific hairdo. No slick hair and well cut suits here.
