Showcasing the always-to-be-missed talents of Philip Seymour Hoffman, the first trailer for spy thriller A Most Wanted Man has popped up online.

Based on a novel by genre master John Le Carre, and directed by Anton Corbijn, the film follows German spies (one of which being Hoffman), potential Islamist extremists and plenty more shady characters, all wading through the murky waters of supposed truth in modern-day Hamburg.

Also appearing are the likes of Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe and Robin Wright, with the film set to hit cinemas on September 5.
