Standing in the Cold

When Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks join forces, good things happen (Saving Private Ryan, The Terminal, Catch Me If You Can).

Their latest collaboration, Bridge of Spies, is a Cold War thriller with a seemingly mundane premise: a trial. This trial involves spies and (as the brand new trailer below reveals) the legal and moral ramifications in this beautifully shot film rise to the highest-levels of mid-20th century drama. The soundtrack adds a pulsating element that aggressively grabs us and keeps our attention as much as Mr. Hanks’ magnetic presence.

Ladies and gentlemen, it appears that Mr. Spielberg has made yet another must-see movie.

The verdict will be given October 16, 2015.
