This is the first trailer for the screen adaptation of John le Carré’s Our Kind Of Traitor. Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgard, Damian Lewis and Naomie Harris star in this thriller from director Susanna White and screenwriter Hossein Amini.
This looks like a good old-fashioned grown-up spy thriller – but what else would you expect from a Le Carre adaptation?
While on holiday in Marrakech, an ordinary English couple, Perry (Ewan McGregor) and Gail (Naomie Harris), befriend a flamboyant and charismatic Russian, Dima (Stellan Skarsgård), who unbeknownst to them is a kingpin money launderer for the Russian mafia.
When Dima asks for their help to deliver classified information to the British Secret Services, Perry and Gail get caught in a dangerous world of international espionage and dirty politics. The couple is propelled on a perilous journey through Paris and Bern, a safe house in the French Alps, to the murky corners of the City of London and an alliance with the British Government via a ruthless and determined MI6 agent (Damian Lewis).
Our Kind Of Traitor opens on May 13, 2016.
