LOS ANGELES: Hollywood star Tom Hanks is caught in between two nations on the brink of war in the latest teaser for “Bridge of Spies”.

Steven Spielberg’s latest thriller tells the true story of James B Donovan (Hanks), a lawyer tasked by the US in 1960 with negotiating with the Russians for the release of a downed pilot, reported.

The movie sets its legal drama against the background of simmering tensions between the world’s two super-powers at the height of the Cold War.

“Bridge of Spies” has an all-star pedigree, having been adapted for the screen by Matt Charman (Suite Française) and the Oscar-winning Coen brothers.

Hanks’s supporting cast includes Mark Rylance (Wolf Hall) as a suspected Russian spy, Austin Stowell (Whiplash) as downed pilot Francis Gary Powers and Amy Ryan (The Office) as Donovan’s wife Mary McKenna.
