WATCH: Brit-Drenched Trailer For ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy’

Gary Oldman in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

Hoo boy! This is like a convention of the cream of British male acting talent, and someone’s calling the register.

Colin Firth? “Here sir!”

Gary Oldman? “Present!”

Tom Hardy? “Aye, sir”

Mark Strong? “Sir, yes sir!”

Toby Jones? “Yes sir”

Benedict Cumberbatch? “Here!”

And John Hurt? Hurt? Are you here? Come on we simply cannot do this thing without John Hurt. Show yourself, man!

“Sorry sir, here sir!”

Right, let’s play this astonishingly tense trailer thing, shall we?

Yeah. Just, yeah. Am I wrong?
