Here's the first trailer for Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks' next movie 'Bridge of Spies'

It has been three long years, but we’re finally getting our first look at Steven Spielberg’s next movie.

The famed director’s latest effort is “Bridge of Spies”, a Cold War period piece that tells the story of James Donovan (Tom Hanks), a Brooklyn lawyer recruited by the CIA to negotiate with the Soviet Union for the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.

The catch, of course, is that he’s supposed to arrange for the release of a Soviet spy — something that will make him one of the most reviled men in the country.

With a script co-written by Matt Charman and the Coen brothers (“Fargo”), “Bridge of Spies” opens in US theatres on October 16, 2015.
