Yahoo! Movies released the very first official trailer for “A Most Wanted Man“. The movie is expected to be released July 25, 2014 in the US. We added the trailer in our media archive and the HD captures of the trailer in our gallery. The official website for the movie was also launched: AMostWantedManMovie.com.
Based on the 2008 novel by espionage maestro John le Carré (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”), “A Most Wanted Man” centers on Gunter Bachmann (Hoffman), a German intelligence operative stationed in Hamburg, the German port city where Mohammed Atta and his collaborators planned the 9/11 attacks. Bachmann’s latest “assignment” is Dr. Faisal Abdullah (Homayoun Ershadi), a Muslim academic who’s been backing terrorist activity via donations to a Cyprus-based shipping company. Bachmann conjures a convoluted and dangerous trap for his target with the help of a passionate young lawyer (Rachel McAdams), a cagey CIA agent (Robin Wright), and a shifty banker (Willem Dafoe)
Roadside Attractions has announced the (US) release date for “A Most Wanted Man” according to Box Office Mojo. The movie is expected to be released July 25, 2014. Exhibitor Relations is reporting that it will be a limited release. The movie will be up against “Hercules”, “Sex Tape”, “Step Up All In”, and “Happy Christmas”. The movie is an adaption of John Le Carré’s novel and is directed by Anton Corbijn. It made it’s debut earlier this year during the Sundance Film Festival. Rachel co-stars alongside the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, Willem Dafoe, and Robin Wright.
We added two additional portraits of Rachel during the 2014 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to promote “A Most Wanted Man“. Thanks to Jord for the heads up!
What It’s About: A German spy (Hoffman) works to track down a suspected terrorist, using a lawyer (McAdams) and banker (Dafoe) in a scheme to take him down.
The Scoop: “I loved the tangled web of the story, and the cast was incredible,” says McAdams.
We added more (press junket) interviews and two new portrait sessions of Rachel at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival to promote “A Most Wanted Man. Many thanks to my friends Carol and Amanda for their donations!
Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away on Sunday. We are still lost for words but we wanted to express how deeply saddened we are by this devastating news. We want to give our sincere condolences to his loved ones during this difficult time. Rachel attended the Sundance Film Festival premiere of “A Most Wanted Man” two weeks alongside director Anton Corbijn and co-stars Willem Dafoe and Philip Seymour Hoffman and named him her favorite actor back in 2009. The movie completed production and is expected to be released in theaters sometime this year.
ABC News has Corbijn’s official statement:
“He was not only the most gifted actor I ever worked with (and judging by the legacy he leaves behind I am certain I share this with most if not all directors who were fortunate enough to work with him), he had also become an incredibly inspiring and supportive friend. I am so terribly sad as I find it impossible to comprehend what happened today and to collect my thoughts properly. I have to think about Mimi and the children and I wish them much strength coping with the loss of this truly great man as a father and partner.” — Director Anton Corbijn in a statement. Hoffman stars in Corbijn’s film “A Most Wanted Man,” which premiered earlier this month at the Sundance Film Festival.
We added even more additions of Rachel at the Sundance Film Festival last week to promote “A Most Wanted Man“. We also replaced most of the MQ photos with HQ ones so be sure to head over to our gallery! We also added more additional interviews in our media archive. Many thanks again to my friend Amanda for helping out.
The first press interviews/articles are also added in our press archive. With this update it also means we finished transferring our Events from 2014, Photoshoots from 2014, and “A Most Wanted Man” movie section into our new gallery.
“The story is such a tangled web and is very relevant,” said McAdams, also at Sundance to promote the film. “I learned a lot about what human rights lawyers are doing in Hamburg and what a difficult position they are in. There are realities to the story that are very disturbing. Every character is dealing with moral questions. That stays with you.”
We continue our Sundance 2014 coverage. We added more HQ additional photos of Rachel during at the premiere and visiting two lounges. Many thanks to my friends Nicole and Annie for their donations! We also added the first video interviews in our media archive but we hope more interviews will be released the coming days. Many thanks to my friend Amanda for helping out with these videos.
Reuters published part of the Q&A with the cast and director Anton Corbijn after the Sundance screening, which can be found in our press archive. The full Q&A session can be watched in our media archive. Director Corbijn spoke to The Wall Street Journal and revealed the studios are aiming for a fall 2014 release:
Corbijn says “A Most Wanted Man,” which is being released by Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions, is expected to open sometime this fall. “The film has a very autumnal look,” said Corbijn, “so the opening should appropriately be in the autumn, maybe September-ish.”
Speaking of movie releases: North Easy is reporting in their interview with Rachel’s Untilted Cameron Crowe Project co-star Danielle Russell that the movie is “expected to be released later this year before Thanksgiving”. If both reports are true that would mean that Rachel has two movies coming out this fall: “A Most Wanted Man” and the still Untitled Cameron Crowe movie.
The very first movie clip of “A Most Wanted Man” was released during the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. It features Rachel alongside her co-star Philip Seymour Hoffman and it’s the same scene as the first production still that got released a while ago. We can also hear Rachel’s German accent for the very first time. The movie clip has been added to our media archive. Stay tuned on more coverage of Sundance!
Another Sundance Film Festival portrait session was released. This time by Entertainment Weekly’s portrait studio. Rachel poses with her “A Most Wanted Man” co-stars Willem Dafoe and Philip Seymour Hoffman. We added the portrait and on set photo in our gallery.
