After the tragic and sudden passing of Philip Seymour Hoffman this year, many of his projects were up in the air, including the at-the-time shooting of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. A Most Wanted Man, however, was in the air for a different reason, as the indie project which premiered at Sundance this year looked like it wasn't going to see the light of day on this side of the pond. All of that changed last week however as a UK trailer debuted for the film which now has an expected release date of September 5th.
Based on the book of the same name, the film stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams and Willem Dafoe, with Hoffman as the head of a covert German spy unit in Hamburg on the tail of a terrorist hiding out in the city. If you like your spy thrillers more Tinker Tailor than Mission Impossible this is probably the one for you, with mostly positive reviews coming out of screenings so far, mainly hailing the films cast and pacing as reasons to make it a must see.
