One of the very last films Philip Seymour Hoffman completed before his passing this past February was A Most Wanted Man, Anton Corbijn‘s adaptation of John le Carré‘s novel. The film premiered at Sundance this year to mostly (if not wildly) positive reviews, and is now heading toward a theatrical release this summer.
Hoffman leads the contemporary thriller as Günther Bachmann, a German spy looking for a half-Chechen, half-Russian immigrant (Grigoriy Dobrygin) with possible terrorist ties. The film looks checking out for many reasons, not least of which is the chance to hear Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, and Willem Dafoe try out their best German accents. Watch the first A Most Wanted Man trailer after the jump.
