‘Bridge of Spies’ Trailer: Spielberg and Hanks Re-Team

Posted in The Screening Room by - June 05, 2015

Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg have teamed up numerous times in the past, most notably on Saving Private RyanCatch Me If You Can, and The Terminal. Their newest collaboration Bridge of Spies looks to be another great example how well the two work together. While it may seem more court-room drama and less action film, it does seem to hit on the all the right buttons of a Spielberg film, while showcasing the fantastic acting abilities of Tom Hanks.

A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, DreamWorks Pictures/Fox 2000 Pictures’ “Bridge of Spies” tells the story of James Donovan, 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.
