Here’s the first trailer for Bridge of Spies, the film that brings director Steven Spielberg and star Tom Hanks together with writers Joel and Ethan Coen and Matt Charman to tell the story of an American attorney who was on the forefront of a Cold War conflict involving the exchange of political prisoners in the early 1960s.
CIA pilot Francis Gary Powers was shot down over the Soviet Union in 1960, and the United States long denied that his mission was related to intelligence-gathering. He was convicted of espionage in the Soviet Union and sentenced to ten years in prison. In 1962, he returned to the US thanks to a spy-swap deal between the US and Soviets.

Can Tom Hanks stand fast and represent ideals of fairness and freedom in the face of fear? Read More »
