Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Opens Friday, Dec 9, 2011 Synopsis: Let the Right One In director Tomas Alfredson takes the helm for this adaptation of John Le Carré's novel about an ex-British agent who emerges from retirement to expose a mole in MI6. England, 1973: British Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) head Control (John Hurt) and his top-ranking lieutenant George Smiley ({$Gary Oldman)) are both forced into retirement after a mission involving respected secret agent Jim Prideaux (Mark Strong) turns unexpectedly deadly. As the Cold War continues to escalate, suspicions of a Soviet double agent begin to grow within the SIS. Subsequently summoned by Undersecretary Oliver Lacon (Simon McBurney), Smiley is secretly reemployed by the SIS in order to root out the double agent suspected of sharing top-secret British intelligence with the Russians. Meanwhile, as Smiley and his new partner Agent Peter Guillam (Benedict Cumberbatch) begin systematically examining all of the official missions and records involving MI6, the veteran spy can't help but recalling an encounter he once had with Karla, a dangerous Russian operative, years prior. At first, uncovering the identity of the infiltrator seems nearly impossible. Smiley and Guillam get a big break, however, when undercover agent Ricki Tarr (Tom Hardy) reveals that he has fallen for a mysterious woman in Turkey named Irina (Svetlana Khodchenkova) who may have a crucial lead. Later, upon learning that Control had comprised a list of five possible suspects, code named Tinker (Toby Jones), Tailor (Colin Firth, Soldier (Ciarán Hinds), Poor Man (David Dencik) and Spy - none other than Smiley himself - the investigation begins to heat up again. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Mark Strong, Ciarán Hinds Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World

Now Playing Synopsis: A retired spy-turned-full-time homemaker attempts to stop a power-mad supervillain from taking over the planet, and gets some unexpected help from her disagreeable twin step-children in this fourth entry of writer/director Robert Rodriguez's family-friendly adventure series. It's been a long time since former OSS agent Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) went chasing bad guys. These days it's hard enough just to get her precocious stepkids, Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook), to clean their rooms, and make sure her baby daughter has a full sippy cup. And despite the fact that Marissa's husband, Wilbur (Joel McHale), earns his income chasing spies on TV, he hasn't a clue that his mild-mannered wife was once a cloak-and-dagger woman. Now the nefarious Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) has hatched a plot for world domination, prompting the OSS to summon Marissa back to active duty. When Rebecca and Cecil discover their stepmother's tightly guarded secret, they realize they might be the only hope for getting her out of a tight jam and foiling the Timekeeper's evil plan. Fortunately Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Juni Cortez (Daryl Sabara) are more than willing to teach Rebecca and Cecil the tricks of the trade, and in no time the two bickering ten-year-olds are wielding hi-tech gadgets and heading out on their first assignment. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Jessica Alba, Joel McHale, Jeremy Piven, Alexa Vega, Daryl Sabara, Rowan Blanchard, Mason Cook Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Garbo: The Spy

Opens Friday, Nov 18, 2011 Synopsis: Juan Pujol was called "Garbo" by British intelligence agents because they regarded him as "the greatest actor in the world." And perhaps he was -- he was good enough to persuade Nazi authorities that he was working for them even as he was serving the Allies at the same time, and received high decorations from both sides without either learning his true identity. Pujol was a Spaniard who was determined to work against the Axis during World War II, and provided German intelligence with information that he'd received through a network of 27 spies in Europe and the U.K. Of course, those spies never existed, the information he gave the Germans was largely false, and his insistence to the Germans that the Normandy landing was just a distraction helped make the successful D-Day campaign possible. However, while the Germans didn't know who Pujol was, neither did the British, and while he was reported dead in 1949, three decades later it was discovered that Pujol was alive and using another identity in South America. Filmmaker Edmon Roch uses interviews, newsreel footage, vintage photographs, clips from Hollywood espionage dramas and WWII propaganda films to tell the true story of one of the greatest and most elusive spies of his generation in Garbo: The Spy (aka Garbo: El Espia and Garbo: The Man Who Saved the World). The film was an official selection at the 2010 San Francisco Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
