Tom Hanks is a man caught between two countries in the first poster for DreamWorks' Bridge of Spies, arriving in theaters October 16. The studio has also announced that the first trailer will debut tomorrow, June 5, so be sure to stay tuned for that sneak peek footage. This new drama reunites Tom Hanks and director Steven Spielberg for the fourth time, following Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal.
A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, DreamWorks Pictures/Fox 2000 Pictures' Bridge of Spies tells the story of James Donovan (Tom Hanks), a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. Screenwriters Matt Charman and Ethan Coen & Joel Coen have woven this remarkable experience in Donovan's life into a story inspired by true events that captures the essence of a man who risked everything and vividly brings his personal journey to life.
Directed by three-time Academy Award-winning director Steven Spielberg, Bridge of Spies also stars three-time Tony Award winner Mark Rylance as Rudolf Abel, a KGB agent defended by Donovan; Scott Shepherd as CIA operative Hoffman; Academy Award nominee Amy Ryan as James' wife, Mary; Sebastian Koch as East German lawyer Vogel; and Academy Award nominee Alan Alda as Thomas Watters, a partner at Donovan's law firm. Do you think this role could earn Tom Hanks yet another Oscar? Check out the poster below, and check back tomorrow for the first Bridge of Spies trailer.
