This weekend, the team at STUDIOCANAL are marking the 10th Anniversary of Tomas Alfredson’s incredible Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, the film based on John Le Carré‘s classic story of treachery and espionage, with a new 4K UHD release on 6 December, pre-order here, and a celebratory Regent Street Cinema Q&A event in London on 24 November, with tickets on sale now!
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is set in the 1970s, and finds George Smiley (an impeccable Gary Oldman), a recently retired MI6 agent, doing his best to adjust to a life outside the secret service. However, when a disgraced agent reappears with information concerning a mole at the heart of the Circus, Smiley is drawn back into the murky field of espionage…
This special 4K UHD Edition not only features artwork by a favourite artist of mine, Matt Taylor, but also new bonus features including Alfredson in conversation with Mark Kermode, plus video essays on the film by UK critics Jason Solomons and Matthew Sweet. There’s also a feature with Le Carré Biographer Adam Sisman, and his thoughts on the film – the full list of extras is just below.
As well as Oldman, the spy thriller also stars Kathy Burke, Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Ciarán Hinds, John Hurt, Toby Jones, Konstantin Khabensky, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Roger Lloyd Pack, and Mark Strong. Here’s what you’ll get, as well as the glorious film of course:
