Trailer Watch: A new Tinker, Tailer, Soldier Spy trailer

Let the Right One In director Tomas Alfredson’s follow-up, an adaptation of the 1974 John Le Carré spy novel, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Gary Oldman stars as a man pulled out of retirement to lead a hunt for a Soviet mole in the top ranks of MI6, the British Secret Intelligence Service. Between this and the first trailer, this has shot to the top of my must-see list this winter — largely due to the incredible cast, which also includes Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Tom Hardy, Ciarán Hinds, John Hurt, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

It’s out in the UK on September 16, 2011, and in US theaters on November 18, with late fall and winter releases for most of the rest of the world.

Trailer Watch: Jonah Hill in The Sitter (red band)

From IGN comes the trailer for the new David Gordon Green comedy, The Sitter, starring Jonah Hill, Sam Rockwell, Max Records, Kevin Hernandez, Landry Bender, J.B. Smoove and Method Man. I didn’t see Your Highness, but this R-rated riff on the Adventures in Babysitting mold is another head-scratcher for the former director of ponderous, Terrence Malick-esque films like All the Real Girls and George Washington… but at least it’s kind of funny.

The Sitter hits theaters on December 9, 2011, where it probably hopes to bring in the people (like me) who get sick to death of all the rampant consumerism and saccharine “Christmas” shit going on that time of year.
