Fans of Pierce Brosnan’s James Bond are not in luck, since the actor stars as an entirely different secret agent in the spy thriller The November Man. Brosnan plays Peter Devereaux (not to be confused with James Bond), an ex-CIA operative who is brought out of retirement to protect a witness with important information on a massive conspiracy. Back on the job, Devereaux becomes the target of his former CIA protégé, and he quickly learns that there is no one he can trust in the agency, a lesson James Bond probably would have known all along. The November Man opens nationwide August 27, but The A.V. Club has an opportunity for you to attend an early screening August 26, here in Chicago at the ShowPlace ICON Theater.

A synopsis and trailer for the film can be found below.
“Code named ‘The November Man’; Peter Devereaux (Pierce Brosnan) is an extremely dangerous and highly trained ex-CIA agent, who is lured out of quiet retirement on a very personal mission. He must protect valuable witness, Alice Fournier, (Olga Kurylenko) who could expose the truth behind a decades old conspiracy. He soon discovers this assignment makes him a target of his former friend and CIA protégé David Mason (Luke Bracey). With growing suspicions of a mole in the agency, there is no one Devereaux can trust, no rules and no holds barred.”
