Closed-Circuit-PosterArriving in theatres later this year, Closed Circuit is shaping up to be a promising international thriller, boasting terrific talents on both sides of the camera.

Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall top a stellar ensemble cast. And with just a few months to go before Focus Features release it in the US, the first trailer and poster have debuted over on Apple, giving us an excellent first look at the thriller.

From the producers of TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY comes the new international thriller CLOSED CIRCUIT.

Following a mysterious explosion in a busy London market, the police swoop in, a suspect is detained, and the country prepares for one of the most high-profile trials in British history. Two exceptional lawyers with a romantic past step into a dangerous web of secrets and lies, and when evidence points to a possible British Secret Service cover up, it’s not just their reputations but their lives that are at stake.

Bana and Hall star alongside Riz Ahmed, Jim Broadbent, Ciarán Hinds, Kenneth Cranham, Anne-Marie Duff, and Julia Stiles.

John Crowley (Boy A, Is Anybody There?) makes a welcome return behind the camera, directing from a script by the Oscar-nominated Steven Knight (Eastern Promises, Dirty Pretty Things).

As the synopsis above boasts, Oscar nominees Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; Les Misérables) are the producers on this, and the trailer definitely shows plenty of promise in my books.

Hall is coming off the back of a fantastic performance in Shane Black’s Iron Man 3. Bana was last seen in Stefan Ruzowitzky’s Deadfall, and is set to be seen next year in Peter Berg’s Lone Survivor alongside Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emily Hirsch, and Ben Foster.

Closed Circuit will be released in the US on August 28th, with its UK release date following a few months later on 1st November. Here’s the first trailer to set the tone nicely.
