Call your agent
Eureka Entertainment to release THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD; Martin Ritt's sharp espionage thriller set in Cold War-era East Germany, starring Richard Burton; on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK as part of The Masters of Cinema Series from 17 May 2021. The first print run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase.
The acclaimed, best-selling novel by John le Carré, about a Cold War spy on one final dangerous mission in East Germany, is transmuted by director Martin Ritt (Hud, Norma Rae) into a film every bit as precise and ruthless as the book.
Academy Award-nominated Richard Burton (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Becket, 1984) is superb as Alec Leamas, whose relationship with the beautiful librarian Nan, played by Claire Bloom (Hamlet, A Streetcar Named Desire), puts his assignment in jeopardy.
Winner of 4 BAFTA Awards (including Best British Film) The Spy Who Came in from the Cold is a hard-edged and tragic thriller, suffused with the political and social consciousness that defined Ritt's career. Watch the exclusive trailer at the link above.

As life on the ship descends into chaos, they're consumed by fear, lust, and the unsatiable hunger for power.
Written and directed by Neil Burger (Limitless, The Illusionist), the film stars Tye Sheridan (The X-Men franchise), Lily-Rose Depp (Savage), Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk), Chanté Adams (Roxanne, Roxanne), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Game of Thrones), Viveik Kalra (Blinded by the Light), Archie Madekwe (Midsommar), Quintessa Swindell (Trinkets), Madison Hu (Bizaardvark), and Colin Farrell (The Gentlemen).

Unfortunately, that past rears its ugly head when Malky meets the now elderly priest at a local pub. This encounter sends the already fragile Malky into an emotional tailspin and has to decide whether to seek revenge against this priest or find another path.
