Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, SpyHot on the heels of my breakdown / analysis of the first Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy clips revealed at Empire's Big Screen here are some new moody and stunningly atmospheric pictures that raise the mystery on who the traitor could be from what is possibly going to be this year's top film Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

The spy thriller features a stellar cast including Gary Oldman, Kathy Burke, Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Ciarán Hinds, John Hurt, Toby Jones, Konstantin Khabensky, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Roger Lloyd Pack, and Mark Strong. Directed by Tomas Alfredson (“Let The Right One In”) it is a Working Title production for STUDIOCANAL.
Set in the 1970s, TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY finds George Smiley (Gary Oldman), a recently retired MI6 agent, doing his best to adjust to a life outside the secret service. However, when a disgraced agent reappears with information concerning a mole at the heart of the Circus, Smiley is drawn back into the murky field of espionage. Tasked with investigating which of his trusted former colleagues has chosen to betray him and their country, Smiley narrows his search to four suspects - all experienced, urbane, successful agents - but past histories, rivalries and friendships make it far from easy to pinpoint the man who is eating away at the heart of the British establishment.

The screenplay is by Peter Straughan and Bridget O’Connor and the film, which was shot in London, Budapest and Istanbul is produced by Working Title’s co-chairmen Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner and Robyn Slovo. The executive producers are Debra Hayward, Liza Chasin, Douglas Urbanski, Peter Morgan, Olivier Courson, Ron Halpern and John le Carré.

  1. Apart from the Tom Hardy one, they don't link to larger images. Is that supposed to be like that?

  2. Hey, yea. Unfortunately my homepage has so much on it, that if I post large pics it minimises the number of actual blog posts view-able on the the homepage. I was going to point you to my trailer park with bigger pics http://the-establishing-shot.blogspot.com/. But I see that you already have much larger ones up. :)
