A Most Wanted Man TicketsI have to say that Anton Corbijn's adaptation of Mr. John le Carré's A Most Wanted Man is one of my most anticipated film of 2014! I have been busy of late, hence (and sadly) my blogging has been somewhat lacking and I would not been running a second competition in such quick succession were it not for my eagerness for all things A Most Wanted Man.

Not only are we going to delve back into the murky world of international intrigue from the mind of master spy writer John le Carré but acclaimed photographer turned music video and film Director Anton Corbijn is in the driving seat. Since Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy's release I have been hankering to revisit George Smiley's world and was overjoyed to hear that Corbijn would be adapting le Carré's contemporary novel - as his 2010 low key thriller The American, starring George Clooney was one of my favourite films of that year. Beautifully shot it captured the day to day complexities of a man at the top of his game that can only makes it through the day by watching his back.

A Most Wanted Man subject matter couldn't be more topical and will hopefully delve into the on the ground cause and effects of faceted political issues with increasing social relevance as only John le Carré can.

If that isn't enough to Anton Corbijn is also bringing a powerhouse of talent to bring his story to life that includes the late great Philip Seymour Hoffman in one of his final roles, as well as the scene stealing Daniel Brühl (Rush), Robin Wright, Rachel McAdams and the walking legend - Willem Dafoe.

I for one cannot wait for A Most Wanted Man to hit the big screen and I'm very excited to be able to offer Establishing Shot readers the chance to go along to an exclusive screening of A Most Wanted Man this Monday in Central London AS WELL AS what is sure to be a fascinating Q&A session with director Anton Corbijn after the film. Details on how to enter below.

Hamburg, the present day. The city - where the 9/11 bombers lived and plotted - remains on high alert. When a brutally tortured immigrant, identified by Interpol as a possible terror suspect, turns up and lays claim to his father's ill-gotten fortune, he attracts the interest of a secretive anti-terror unit headed by Gunter Bachmann (Philip Seymour Hoffman).

Working with the CIA and forming an uneasy alliance with spy Martha Sullivan (Robin Wright), Bachmann must uncover the truth about the man's identity and his possible connections to high level terrorists.

As the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man's true motives – is he an oppressed victim or a militant jihadist bent on destruction?

Based on the novel by the master of the spy genre, John le Carré, A Most Wanted Man is a gripping espionage thriller that prickles with tension right through to its last heart-stopping scene.

The cast is led by Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Master, Capote), Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes, Midnight In Paris), Willem Dafoe (Shadow of the Vampire, Platoon) and Robin Wright (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Moneyball).
