VIDEO: First Look - Philip Seymour Hoffman in Int'l Trailer for A MOST WANTED MAN
A new international trailer for director Anton Corbijn's A MOST WANTED MAN has been released. The film, opening in select theaters on July 25th, is one of the final performances from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. Get a first look below!
Hoffman stars along with Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, Willem Dafoe and Daniel Brühl. A Most Wanted Man is based on master story-teller John le Carré's worldwide bestselling book.
Hamburg, Germany: 2012. A mysterious, tortured and near-dead half-Chechen, half-Russian man on the run (Grigoriy Dobrygin) arrives in the city's Islamic community desperate for help and looking to recover his late Russian father's ill-gotten fortune. Nothing about this young man seems to add up; is he a victim or a thief or, worse still, an extremist intent on destruction?
Drawn into this web of intrigue are a banker (Dafoe) and a young female lawyer (McAdams) who is determined to defend the defenseless. All the while, they are being watched by the brilliant, roguish chief of a covert German spy unit (Hoffman), who fights to put the pieces together as the clock ticks. In an adrenaline laced and heart-rending escalation of tension and collision, it's not long before he becomes everyone's most wanted man.
Hoffman most recently appeared on stage in 2012's revival of Death of a Salesman, for which he received a Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Play.
The show marked his return to Broadway for the first time since his critically acclaimed, Tony-nominated performance in Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night in 2003. He also received a Tony Award nomination in 2000 for his performance in Sam Shepard's True West.
