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.

Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan in 'Life': First Look -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

It’s 1955 and Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock has convinced a young James Dean to take a road trip from Los Angeles to New York to Dean’s hometown of Fairmont, Indiana, so Stock can photograph Dean in the environments that “affected and shaped the unique character” of Dean, the photographer said in an interview describing their adventure.

However, that fateful trip, where Stock shot Dean’s famous Times Square photo, is the subject of a new film directed by Dutch director Anton Corbijn. Starring Dane DeHaan as Dean and Robert Pattinson as Stock, the film, called Life, is currently shooting in freezing Ontario, Canada, which is doubling for Indiana.

In the shot, the two young actors are heading from the train station to Dean’s childhood home. Corbijn is happy with the film’s progress thus far. When we spoke to the director he had been shooting for eight days and was already pleased with the connections formed between the two men.

More importantly, they’ve each sparked to their disparate roles.

“Rob has an intensity that I think Dennis would have. When I see Rob, I see an inner turmoil that is great for the role,” he said. “And Dane is really interesting. He has a beautiful face, but it’s a hard face to grasp. It’s hard to see how Dane reads sometimes, and the same thing goes for James Dean.”

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.

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.
