Watch the action-packed first trailer for Spooks: The Greater Good

The first trailer for Spooks: The Greater Good, the big screen spin-off from the long-running BBC spy drama, has been unveiled. Scroll down and click to watch it. 

Game Of Thrones' star Kit Harington takes the lead role in the new movie alongside Peter Firth, who played Sir Harry Pearce in each of the show's 10 seasons on the BBC. Jennifer Ehle and Elyes Gabel also star.  

The plot centres around Pearce being forced to resign after a high-profile terrorist named Adam Qasim (Gabel) escapes from MI5 custody. When Pearce then disappears off a bridge into the Thames, the team turn to former agent Will Holloway (played by Harington), who is drafted in from Moscow to foil a bomb thread from Qasim and uncover the truth surrounding the disappearance of Pearce. 

The film has been written by Jonathan Brackley and Sam Vincent, with regular series director Bharat Nalluri behind the camera.

Spooks ran from 2002 to 2011 on BBC One and followed the work of a group of MI5 officers based at the service's Thames House headquarters, in a highly secure suite of offices known as The Grid.

The movie will be released into cinemas on May 8th.
