Bridge of Spies — Extended TV Spot: 'The Game'


added: Wed, Sep 9th '15

With its upcoming premiere screening at the New York Film Festival later this month, a new 60-second spot has been released for Steven Spielberg's Cold-War thriller "Bridge of Spies," which stars Tom Hanks in what looks like another award-worthy performance.

The extended commercial, titled "The Game," features some new footage that's not seen in the previously released trailers. Here, Hanks plays an ordinary New York attorney who's been assigned to go behind the iron curtain to negotiate a prison exchange, involving a captured American pilot and a jailed Russian spy, during the peak of the Cold War.

The film is based on a true story and was written by Matt Charman and the Oscar-winning duo Joel & Ethan Coen. "Bridge of Spies" is currently scheduled to land in theaters on October 16th.

A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, BRIDGE OF SPIES tells the story of James Donovan (Hanks), a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the centre 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.
