Vertical Entertainment has brought online the trailer for Spider in the Web, the spy drama by Eran Riklis (Lemon Tree, The Syrian Bride) starring Oscar winner Sir Ben Kingsley (Gandhi, Hugo, Sexy Beast), Monica Bellucci (Malena, SPECTRE), and Itay Tiran (Lebanon).
In the film, Adereth (Kingsley), a once-lauded but aging field agent of the Israeli Mossad, is deemed past his prime by his superiors. Convinced that he’s been fabricating intelligence to maintain his relevance, they send a young operative, Daniel (Tiran), to ensure that Adereth does not deviate from his mission to deliver crucial information he claims is waiting for him regarding a chemical weapons sale to a Middle Eastern dictatorship.
That tip leads to the enigmatic Angela (Bellucci), who is a target. A lover. An enemy. All? Neither? As the lines of trust are blurred, Adereth realizes the hunter may become the hunted in a world of mirrors and deceit.
Spider in the Web will open in limited theaters, including New York and Los Angeles, and will be available on VOD on Friday, August 30th.
