Steven Spielberg is at the helm of the forthcoming film Bridge of Spies. Starring Tom Hanks, Alan Alda, and Amy Ryan, the Cold War thriller is based on the story of James Donovan, an American lawyer “recruited by the CIA during the Cold War to help rescue a pilot detained in the Soviet Union.” The script was penned by Matt Charman and renowned duo the Coen brothers (No Country For Old Men, Fargo). Ahead of its October 16th theatrical release, the first official trailer has been revealed.

As we previously noted, John Williams will not be scoring Bridge of Spies due to health issues, marking the first time the composer has not been tied a Spielberg project in 30 years. The scoring duties will instead be handled by Thomas Newman, known for his work on American Beauty and The Shawshank Redemption.
