Gary Oldman Would Make A Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Sequel
We still have a few months before Tomas Alfredson's Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy hits US shores, but the film is already a hit internationally. Already out in the United Kingdom, the movie is both wowing critics and audiences, opening at number one its first week and expected to do the same in it's sophomore weekend. As with any project, success equals potential sequel and those gears are apparently now in motion.

Go Behind The Scenes Of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy With A New Featurette
When one thinks about spy thrillers, the obvious names that pop up are James Bond, Jason Bourne and Jack Ryan. These movies are typically filled with fast cars, fancy gadgets, and highly stylized action that always ends with the hero triumphing over evil. Tomas Alfredson's Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy, however, appears to be a completely different kind of film.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Clip Makes Mark Strong Look Like One Of The Good Guys
I've never read Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy by John le Carre and I don't plan to before the Tomas Alfredson film comes out this December. I know the story revolves around a retired MI6 agent named George Smiley (Gary Oldman) who is brought back in order to find a Soviet mole in the organization. I have no idea who the traitor ends up being, but I am hoping one thing: that it's not Mark Strong.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Pushed Back To December
There are still plenty of films left to come out this year, but there are few that I am anticipating more than Tomas Alfredson's Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy. Based on the novel by John le Carré, the movie has a stellar cast that includes the likes of Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Mark Strong, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Ciaran Hinds and each trailer we've seen has been better than the last.

UK Trailer For Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Adds Useless Narration
I don't think it's too controversial to say that the trailers for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy have been some of the best we've seen so far in 2011. The previews are atmospheric, mysterious, beautiful and, most importantly, informative about the plot. At no point during either of the previous two trailers did I think to myself, "Gee, I really need an annoying voice-over that will take me out of the film completely."

Colin Firth And Tom Hardy Get Encoded In Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Posters
Speaking of mystery, does Tom Hardy not look weirdly like Brad Pitt in Moneyball in this poster, with the floppy blond hair? Look at this image and tell me they couldn't at least be brothers on some kind of mission together. And even if you're not down with my theory, take a look at the two new posters below

New Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Trailer Borrows Music From Magneto
Thankfully the booming score doesn't cover up the film's massive appeal, watching Gary Oldman playing a retired MI-6 spy brought back in to ferret out a mole in his own organization. He's surrounded by the aforementioned murderer's row of talent, so deep that I can't even spot Tom Hardy in the lineup

New Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Stills Show Off Tom Hardy, Colin Firth And Gary Oldman
For the last decade almost every British actor you can name has played a part in the Harry Potter franchise. From John Cleese to Kenneth Branagh to Rhys Ifans, J.K. Rowling's wizarding world has prevented many thespians from unemployment. Sadly, the run of Potter films end this summer, but movies like Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy are here to show that there will always be a room for British ensemble pieces.
