Spielberg's 'Bridge of Spies' to debut at NY Film Festival

NEW YORK (AP) — Steven Spielberg's Cold War thriller with Tom Hanks, "Bridge of Spies," will premiere at the 53rd New York Film Festival.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced its slate for this year's festival on Wednesday. "Bridge of Spies" adds to a lineup that already features the premieres of several anticipated fall movies: Robert Zemeckis' "The Walk," Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs" and Don Cheadle's "Miles Ahead."

The 17-day festival, which kicks off Sept. 25, will also include the debut of Laura Israel's documentary of photographer Robert Frank, "Don't Blink: Robert Frank."

The rest of the selection features films making earlier festival stops, including Michael Moore's "Where to Invade Next," Todd Haynes' '50s lesbian drama "Carol," Rebecca Miller's romantic comedy "Maggie's Plan" and Michel Gondry's comedy "Microbe & Gasoline."
