Our Kind of Traitor trailer: Ewan McGregor is a reluctant spy

Posted on

Don’t you hate it when the nice guy you met on vacation in Marrakech turns out to be a high-ranking money launderer for the Russian mafia?

Which is exactly what happens to schoolteacher Perry (Ewan McGregory) and his partner Gail (Naomie Harris) in the new trailer for Our Kind of Traitor. Adapted from John le Carré’s novel, Traitor finds Perry and Gail befriending a Russian man named Dima (Stellan Skarsgård), who asks them to pass classified information to MI6. That request sparks an international chase across Europe as Perry and Gail dodge shadowy figures and try to figure out who they can trust — including Damian Lewis as a tenacious MI6 agent.
