This trailer for Bridge Of Spies delivers what you want from a Tom Hanks movie directed by Steven Spielberg. Maybe it’s a touch too predictable. Hanks is bringing his best everyman to the table and the tale seems noble. It may be too early to tell – but it could be a touch too noble for a mass audience.
Here’s the official synopsis:
A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, Bridge of Spies tells the story of James Donovan (Hanks), 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.
Bridge Of Spies opens in the US on 16 October 2015.
