Closed Circuit Trailer
Somehow I hadn't heard about this one until now, when it's less than a month away. Closed Circuit is a new London-set thriller about lawyers caught up in a terrorism case involving an MI5 asset starring Eric Bana (Hanna), Rebecca Hall (Iron Man 3), Ciaran Hinds (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Jim Broadbent (Any Human Heart) and Julia Stiles (The Bourne Ultimatum). It's written by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises, Redemption) and directed by John Crowley (Is Anybody There?), but Focus Features is billing it as "from the producers of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," (that would be Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner) which is a surefire way to get my attention at least! Oddly, unlike Tinker Tailor and Skyfall, we Americans get this Brit thriller first. It opens in the U.S. on August 28, and in the UK November 1.
