Tense new trailer for Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies

Twentieth Century Fox has debuted a 2nd trailer for this cold war thriller starring Tom Hanks and it will have you on the edge of your seat! This is Spielberg’s first directing effort since Lincoln in 2011 and we can’t wait to see it on the Big Screen! Tom Hanks plays Brooklyn lawyer James Donovan, recruited to negotiate the swap of a Soviet spy (Mark Rylance) for a US spy pilot who’s been shot down with a “head full of classified information.”

“They want you to negotiate so it’s not governments talking,” Hanks’ character is told before leaving for East Berlin. “We need to have the conversation our governments can’t,” Hanks later tells Russian officials.

It’s based on the true story of spy Rudolf Abel who was ‘swapped’ with captured American U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers in 1962. Spielberg directed and produced the film with Marc Platt and Kristie Macosko Krieger.

Bridge of Spies hits US cinema’s on October 16 and UK cinema's on November 6.
