Sunday night, DreamWorks Pictures held the world premiere of Bridge of Spies, starring Tom Hanks. The film’s debut was presented during the 53rd Annual New York Film Festival. According to the press release, the film received a standing ovation.
A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, DreamWorks Pictures/Fox 2000 Pictures’ “Bridge of Spies” is the story of James Donovan, a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. Screenwriters Matt Charman and Ethan Coen & Joel Coen have woven this remarkable experience in Donovan’s life into a story inspired by true events that captures the essence of a man who risked everything and vividly brings his personal journey to life.
The night was filled with a packed house including director Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Amy Ryan, Mark Rylance, Alan Alda, Austin Stowell and more!
