Here's The Trailer For Spielberg's BRIDGE OF SPIES

Written by

Here is the just released trailer to Steven Spielberg's upcoming drama/thriller Bridge of Spies which was originally titled St. James Place. I'm glad they changed the title because I'm sure there are many streets named that throughout the country. Movies and TV shows which have street names never do well. Well, besides A Nightmare on Elm Street. And Sesame Street. Hopefully they never decide to combine those two although if it featured Elmo getting murdered in his sleep by Freddy Krueger I might think twice. Anyway, here's a Bridge of Spies plot description:

A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, DreamWorks Pictures/Fox 2000 Pictures’ Bridge of Spies tells the story of James Donovan, a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. Screenwriters Matt Charman and Ethan Coen & Joel Coen have woven this remarkable experience in Donovan’s life into a story inspired by true events that captures the essence of a man who risked everything and vividly brings his personal journey to life.

Oh, okay. So it's a movie with a lot of old guys in the 50's wearing grey suits and screaming at each other. Almost like The Untouchables except that movie had some awesome shoot-outs and Robert De Niro bashing in (Warning: Violence - duh) some guy's skull (2nd Violence warning!) with a baseball bat (warned ya). I'll see Bridge of Spies of course because nobody frames an image like Spielberg but I'm pretty certain teenagers are going to pretend this thing doesn't exist. Should have made Jurassic World if you wanted to really get that teen $$$$, Steve. Also, most of the movie-going public won't even notice - but this is the first Steven Spielberg movie since 1985 which won't be musically scored by John Williams. Spielberg actually only shot this movie this past winter and as he wants it in theaters this October, that left Williams little time to score this film as the composer recently underwent back surgery. Also, Williams will be tied up with recording the Star Wars Episode VII score all summer long. In Williams' place is composer Thomas Newman who is actually my second favorite composer so I have no problem with this choice. Still, no Williams makes me sad. Especially for a Spielberg movie. But it was either hire Newman or loop previous John Williams music into this movie and I don't see where the Ewok's theme would fit in here.
