Preview, Might “Beirut” signal the arrival of Jon Hamm as a Big Screen star?

I’d missed this trailer, attached to a showing of “Nostalgia” I caught Thursday. That film stars Jon Hamm, as does this one. Both are Bleecker St. releases.

A mediator trying to negotiate the release of an old friend who’s been taken hostage by militants. Rosamund Pike and Shea Whigham also star.’

And it looks good. Tony Gilroy scripted it, Brad “The Machinist/Transiberian” directed it. I’d given up on Hamm after that Disney disaster that had him playing an agent who recruits Indian cricket players to baseball. Bleecker Street did not.

April 9.
