StudioCanal have released this new featurette for Tomas Alfredson’s (Let The Right One In) marvelous Cold War thriller ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy,’ featuring an in-depth look at the film and including interviews with the film’s key cast, director and John le Carré. ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy‘ is an adaptation of le Carre’s acclaimed and best-selling spy novel of the same name. The cast assemble is top-notch in Gary Oldman as George Smiley, Benedict Cumberbatch, David Dencik, Colin Firth, Stephen Graham, Tom Hardy, Jared Harris, Ciarán Hinds, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Roger Lloyd Pack and Mark Strong.

Set in the 1970s, ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy’ finds George Smiley, 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. ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy‘ is set for release September 16th in the UK, and November 18th in the US.
