Tinker Tailor – UK, September 16. U.S., now December 9 :(


As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait. Unfortunately, U.S. audiences will have to wait just a bit longer as it turns out which, obviously, means Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, starring Colin Firth, Gary Oldman and Benedict Cumberbatch, is really worth waiting for. On the good news/bad news front, what has been widely reported for some time as having a 16 September premiere, turns out now the film will not be released in U.S. until December 9. How can this possibly be the good news, you’re asking? Well, this is what usually happens when producers and studios feel extra good about a film and want to give it a better push during Oscar time. TTSP is still on track for its 16 September release in the UK so, please please, let us know how it is asap. Me? I’m definitely there on December 9.

  • Well, at least I’ll nearly be done with school, so I can catch a showtime post-finals instead of trying to clear some non-homework time in September.

    • @Jessica: Glad I could be of help. 🙂

    I wish it was December 9. No one is playing this movie!!!

    Magnolia has a start date of December 23. Why do I have to wait so long?

    • @Rita: I wish there was something I could do, but unfortunately, release patterns are dictated by the distributor of the film.

    I suppose the distributor doesn’t think it will have good ticket sales in Dallas.
    This is just terrible. I hate waiting. I am checking the Magnolia site every day for times.
    Better see it the first weekend or it may be off.

    • @Rita: I will definitely be seeing on Dec 23. Here’s a thought. Grab the original DVD of series with Alec Guinness and watch daily until Dec 23. 🙂 It’s well worth the time.
