‘Bridge Of Spies’ Trailer: Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg Dive Into Cold War Drama

The trailer for Bridge of Spies, the long awaited teaming between Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, is finally here. Hanks and Spielberg have collaborated on a number of projects over the years, but rarely are they in their traditional roles as actor/director.

Check out the Bridge of Spies trailer here:

Here is the official synopsis for Bridge of Spies:

“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 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.”

It looks like Spielberg and Hanks have devoted a lot to Bridge of Spies, from their personal passion for the subject matter, to their willingness to truly make the film an epic thriller. A nice little addition to the proceedings is the mention of screenwriters Joel and Ethan Coen, along with Matt Charman.

Bridge of Spies opens October 16. Expect it to be a big player in Awards season.
