Anton Corbijn's A Most Wanted Man: international trailer

Control and The American director Anton Corbijn's adaptation of John le Carre's A Most Wanted Man gets its debut trailer...

Fun fact: Dutch photographer and director Anton Corbijn's first name is Anton Johannes Gerrit Corbijn van Willenswaard. We'd love to see that printed on a business card.

Anyway, Corbijn's two feature films, Control (based on the life of Ian Curtis) and The American (based on George Clooney's secret life as an assassin in Italy) were atmospheric, well-made and beautiful to look at, and the same clearly holds true for his new movie, A Most Wanted Man.

Based on the 2008 John le Carre novel of the same name, it's a thriller about money laundering and terrorism, with Rachel McAdams playing a young human rights lawyer who follows up a former Chechen prisoner's claim that he's due a huge inheritance stored in a Hamburg bank.

Philip Seymour Hoffman, Willem Dafoe, Daniel Brühl and Robin Wright are among the supporting cast, and it looks like a promisingly chilly, knotty thriller. A Most Wanted Man makes its debut at the Sundance film festival later this month, and we're hoping it'll get a decent distribution elsewhere at some point this year.

The video is dead.
Plus, I hope this Corbijn movie is not as much a yawn as The American was.

His work with Depeche Mode over the years is stellar.
