Broadsheet Trailer Park: Bridge Of Spies

at

Hanks

What you may need to know:

1. Cold War thriller set in 1960. Lawyer James Donovan (Tom Hanks) tries to negotiate a prisoner swap between KGB spy Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance) and a US pilot shot down over the Soviet Union.

2. Steven Spielberg directs the nicest guy in Hollywood with a script by the Coen brothers. That’s some pedigree.

3.
Thespian’s thespian Rylance must have made quite the impression on Spielberg. He’s landed the title role in the director’s forthcoming adaption of Roald Dahl’s The BFG (2016).

4. This will be the first Spielberg movie that John Williams hasn’t scored since The Color Purple (1985).

5. Broadsheet Prognosis: Oscar bait.

Release Date: October 16

    “Steven Spielberg directs the nicest guy in Hollywood with a script by the Coen brothers. That’s some pedigree.”

    It’d want to be. Steven is almost 70. More movies behind him than in front of him. He needs to get very picky about what he makes…

    “…the director’s forthcoming adaption of Roald Dahl’s The BFG.”

    Hmm…

      Last time The Nicest Guy in Hollywood was near a Coen brothers’ script it was a pile of pedigree chum.
