Watch the New Trailer for Spielberg and the Coen Brothers’ Cold War Thriller, ‘Bridge of Spies’


Steven Spielberg is reuniting with Tom Hanks — who, through the film, is also, incidentally and very excitingly, reuniting with the Coen Brothers — for his upcoming based-on-true-events Cold War film, Bridge of Spies. The movie’s first U.S. trailer was unveiled last month, but today saw the release of the UK trailer, with new footage.

Hanks, whose last work with Spielberg had him trapped in an airport in The Terminal, will play a Brooklyn lawyer hired by the CIA to mediate the release of a sequestered American U-2 Pilot during the Cold War. The Coen Brothers are billed as co-screenwriters along with Matt Charman.

The film is set for release on October 16. Watch the trailer:
