Watch Philip Seymour Hoffman In 'A Most Wanted Man'

The latest trailer for one of the late actor's final films is online

It’s been five months since Philip Seymour Hoffman died, but luckily his last batch of films are soon to be released in cinemas. Before the final Hunger Games two-hander storms multiplexes, we’ll be treated to the crime double bill of God’s Pocket and A Most Wanted Man. Trailers have been released for both, but with the latter getting a brand new promotional clip this week we decided to take a look at just why we’re so excited for the release of what promises to be a spy thriller to remember.

1 | Anton Corbijn

A Most Wanted Man is the director’s first film in four years. His last film, The American was a brilliant but underrated thriller focusing on George Clooney’s aging assassin. Hopefully, Corbijn will bring some of that film's slow-burn high-stakes drama to Hoffman's film.


2 | John le Carré

The pedigree of the story could not be higher, with the film based on a novel by Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy author  John le Carré. Like Gary Oldman’s George Smiley in that film, Hoffman plays an aging intelligence officer. Unlike Smiley, Hoffman’s character is also a hard-drinker and a general underdog. And we do love an underdog.

3 | Willem Dafoe

The man who was once Norman Osborne is onboard as an ally to Hoffman’s character. Following great supporting turns in Out Of The Furnace and The Grand Budapest Hotel, we’ve got high hopes that Dafoe will pull something special out of the bag here.


4 | German accents

Actors attempting accents doesn’t always go down well. For every Leo in Blood Diamond there’s a Littlefinger from Game Of Thrones. Judging from this trailer alone, both Hoffman and Rachel McAdams have nailed their German accents.


5 | Robin Wright

When you’re dealing with dangerous international politics, who better to have on your side than the First Lady of the U.S.A? She may have died her hair black for this, but House Of Cards’ Robin Wright’s screen presence is no less compelling.

A Most Wanted Man is released on September 5
