We recently had the good fortune of seeing the trailer for the much anticipated new adaptation of classic spy novel Tinker, Tailor Soldier, Spy. The trailer was a slick, brooding affair and now we get to see the poster, which follows in the trailer's footsteps:
That's a pretty great poster. Gary Oldman's character, Smiley, is clearly the most prominent figure, which is a little surprising considering the size of the ensemble.
Oldman is MI6 handler George Smiley (a role previously played on television by the legendary Alec Guinness), in this ’70s-set espionage saga, which has been adapted from the classic spy novel by John le Carré. And the period setting explains Hardy’s shaggy dog of a wig, plopped atop the Dark Knight Rises star’s skull as he takes on the role of Ricki Tarr, an agent who learns of a Russian mole causing all manner of naughtiness within the British intelligence system.

The movie comes to us from Tomas Alfredson, the director of Let The Right One In, here's the trailer in case you missed it:
