Focus is opening up the flood gates when it comes to their adaptation of John le Carre's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy as I have just received 38 new pictures from the film along with a clip thanks to IMDb featuring Gary Oldman and Colin Firth.

Directed by Tomas Alfredson, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is set in the 1970s and George Smiley (Oldman), a recently retired MI6 agent, is doing his best to adjust to a life outside the secret service. However, when a disgraced agent reappears with information concerning a mole at the heart of the Circus, Smiley is drawn back into the murky field of espionage.

Along with Oldman and Firth, the cast is as impressive as the come with Tom Hardy, Mark Strong, Stephen Graham, Benedict Cumberbatch, David Dencik, Ciaran Hinds and John Hurt joining the fray.

The film has already been released overseas where it has made over $21 million so far and will be hitting theaters on December 9 here in the States. It's one of the most anticipated films of the year (at least around these parts) and hopefully these new goodies get you even more excited.

You can watch the clip below or in high definition at IMDb and browse the gallery of 54 total images right here.

    Amazing film. I hope it picks up some nominations. Best Pic and Best Actor.

    I have seen this film too and although I can attest that the film is brilliant from a technical perspective (Art Direction, Score, Cinematography etc.), it left me feeling too cold and distant for my liking, especially when compared to espionage thrillers such as Munich...As for Gary Oldman, the whole performance is just way too subdued for it to win him Best Actor.

    I rather liked the distance of the film, that it was as slow, methodical and internalised as Smiley was. I don't think in this case it needed an abundance of emotion for the story in question.

    But I agree that Oldman's work is just too internal and quiet to win him an Oscar. Not at all a bad performance, just one that won't be given the award on the night. I'm not even sure he would be a lock for a nomination.

    There were a couple of scenes in the film showing a Mondrianesque painting by Bill Haydon:

    Small, square and in a gilt frame. Fairly early on it is on a wall in the background behind Smiley at home and later, in a flashback, Haydon gives it to Smiley "for Ann".

    Any stills available showing the painting?

    Cheers, Nick

    Goodness me, I fell asleep watching this film. I was so bored. Now that the hype is dying down here in the UK, I'm glad that certain journalists are being brave enough to say it wasn't as great a flick as the Brit press had made it out to be back in September. We have such a bad habit of overhyping things in the UK. We do it all the time and then turn on it.
