Lead actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was on everyone's mind at the premiere on Tuesday. The 46-year-old Oscar-winning actor died earlier this year of an apparent drug overdose, leaving a hole in the world of cinema.

"It was an incredible experience. He's a very generous and giving actor. I learned a lot, just from watching him work. I think he's one of the greatest actors that's ever lived, so it's a real loss to the world, obviously," McAdams said.

"He was one of our greats, incredible actor. We had worked together years ago on a little thing we did for HBO. And always wanted to immerse ourselves in something meaty, and we finally got to do it. I feel blessed to have gotten to work with him," Wright said.

Anton Corbijn made his name as a photographer and a feature film director in the music genre, but A Most Wanted Man is an old-school espionage story that focuses on a Chechen-Russian immigrant on the run in Germany. Hoffman plays a German spy who believes that the man he is looking for can help reel in bigger terrorists.

It is the latest adaptation of a John Le Carre novel, following 2012's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

The cat and mouse game, and Philip Seymour Hoffman's final film statement, opens Friday in U.S. Theaters.
