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." Sadly that's exactly what happens in the new UK trailer posted on Yahoo!



It's still a great trailer underneath, but why do I need a narrator reading all of the title cards for me? Are British people even more adverse to reading in movie theaters than Americans? Is there an epidemic of blindness in the UK going on right now that I don't know about? (if so, sorry for being so offensive) There is one plus side to all this: they kept the line about the spy killing the man in Istanbul. I think they need to start putting that in every trailer. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is directed by Tomas Alfredson and stars Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, John Hurt, Toby Jones, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Ciaran Hinds. The film is set to be released on November 18th and for more information be sure to head over to our Blend Film Database.
