First Official Trailer for Sundance Premiere 'Beirut' Starring Jon Hamm

"He's damaged goods... But he's manageable." Bleecker Street Films has unveiled the first official trailer for political thriller Beirut, which will be premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in a few weeks. Set in the 1980s, the film stars Jon Hamm as a Us diplomat who flees Lebanon in 1972 after a tragic incident at his home. Ten years later, he is called back to war-torn Beirut by CIA operatives in order to negotiate for the life of a friend he left behind. The full cast includes Rosamund Pike, Shea Whigham, Dean Norris, Mark Pellegrino, and Larry Pine. At first glance, with Rosamund Pike, this already reminds me of the hijacking thriller 7 Days in Entebbe, but this film tells a completely different story. I already have plans to see this at Sundance, and will report back. The trailer looks intriguing, I'm looking forward to watching it. See below. Here's the

‘RoboCop’ Director Jose Padilha Boards Art Heist Movie ‘Master Thieves’
Brazilian director Jose Padilha has come on board to develop the art heist drama “Master Thieves” as a possible feature film for Sony.

Matt Tolmach and David Manpearl are producing the project, and David Beaubaire is overseeing the development for the studio.
