Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

R for mind games, spies spying on spies, chess pieces that may or may not symbolize something

Release Date: December 9, 2011

The winter’s most hotly anticipated list of occupations, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy promises cerebral thrills–the best kind–and British intrigue–the second-best kind, after who-stole-the-cookies intrigue.

Gary Oldman stars as a spy forced out of retirement because his glasses frames have grown to dangerous sizes, and also because he has to find a Russian mole. Colin Firth appears in the trailer as a brief talking head, and as a prominent name next to the phrase ACADEMY AWARD WINNER, presumably to remind Gary Oldman that he has never been nominated and thereby to keep Oldman from getting cocky about the whole being-a-great-actor thing.
