Philip Seymour Hoffman haunts 'A Most Wanted Man' poster -- EXCLUSIVE


It’s been three months since Philip Seymour Hoffman died of a drug overdose, and though Hunger Games fans can still look forward to his scenes as Plutarch Heavensbee in the next two Mockingjay movies, the Oscar winner’s final leading-man role is in A Most Wanted Man, which opens in theaters on July 25.

Hoffman plays Günther Bachmann, a German intelligence agent in Hamberg torn between locking up an Islamic immigrant suspected of terrorist ties (Grigoriy Dobrygin) and manipulating him to entrap an even bigger potential threat. All the while, he has to deal with department rivals, a U.S. intelligence official (Robin Wright) pushing for information, and an immigration attorney (Rachel McAdams) who might be too close to the handsome “most wanted man.” READ FULL STORY

'A Most Wanted Man' trailer: Philip Seymour Hoffman hunts a terrorist

In the wake of his untimely death, every yet-unseen Philip Seymour Hoffman performance is going to be a bittersweet gift. Based on early reviews, A Most Wanted Man lives up to everything we’d come to expect from the formidable talent.

Director Anton Corbijn’s slow-burning, atmospheric spy thriller tells the story of Gunter Bachmann (Hoffman), a German intelligence operative tracking terrorist activities in Hamburg. Based on John le Carré’s intricate 2008 novel, the investigation finds him entangled with a human rights attorney (Rachel McAdams), a banker (Willem Dafoe), and a powerful CIA agent (Robin Wright).

The film premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and is set to hit theaters on July 25. Check out the trailer after the jump.


'A Most Wanted Man' director mourns loss of Philip Seymour Hoffman

The maker of one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s last films, the espionage drama A Most Wanted Man, mourned the loss of his friend and leading man — just weeks after having spent time together at Sundance premiering the film.

Above is Willem Dafoe, director Anton Corbijn, Hoffman, and Rachel McAdams at the festival, in much happier times.

“Hearing that Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away came as much as a shock to me as to anyone else I’d imagine,” said Corbijn, who referred obliquely to the personal troubles Hoffman was now clearly facing: “We spent some time together only two weeks ago and he seemed in a good place despite some issues he had to deal with.”

Toronto Film Festival: Rachel McAdams on delightful bike rides, upcoming 'A Most Wanted Man' shoot

For an A-list ingenue who strides red carpets around the world, Rachel McAdams still expresses down-to-earth delight and wonder in her profession, who she works with, and where she films.

While chatting to EW during the Toronto International Film Festival, the actress said she was downright excited about shooting her upcoming thriller A Most Wanted Man soon in Hamburg, Germany. Directed by Anton Corbijn (The American), and costarring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Willem Defore, the movie is based on John le Carre’s 2008 novel about a Chechen former prisoner who arrives illegally in Germany.

McAdams, who plays German civil rights lawyer Annabel Richter, gushed over working with Oscar winner Hoffman, and riding bikes in Hamburg, both new experiences.  READ FULL STORY
