Yesterday DreamWorks Pictures/Fox 2000 Pictures’ gave us our first look at Tom Hanks in his new film BRIDGE OF SPIES. Directed by Steven Spielberg and written by Matt Charman and Ethan Coen & Joel Coen, this dramatic thriller is described as follows:
“A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, DreamWorks Pictures/Fox 2000 Pictures’ “Bridge of Spies” tells the story of James Donovan, a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. Screenwriters Matt Charman and Ethan Coen & Joel Coen have woven this remarkable experience in Donovan’s life into a story inspired by true events that captures the essence of a man who risked everything and vividly brings his personal journey to life.”
While the film’s poster is not what I would expect to see with such powerhouses attached the trailer has left me wanting more. For some reason when I look at this poster all I can think of is the television show “The Americans” and I just expect more from a project by Steven Spielberg.
Hanks will be joined by Mark Rylance, Scott Shepherd, Amy Ryan, Sebastian Koch, and Alan Alda in this story that is inspired by real life events that bring his personal journey to life. As a huge fan of movies that based on real life events that shed light on secret missions planned by the government I have been excited about this film since the new first broke. Add Hanks, Spielberg and the Coen’s and how can you say no.
CIA, spies, Russians and a lawyer from Brooklyn who gets thrown in the middle sounds like a fantastic time to me and this trailer only has me more excited for opening day.
Check out the trailer below and let us know if you are excited to see Tom Hanks back on the big screen. BRIDGE OF SPIES opens in theatres on October 16, 2016.
