"Damascus Cover" (opening in theaters July 20th) is an espionage thriller starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Israeli spy Ari Ben-Zion. Assigned to smuggle a chemical weapons scientist out of Syria by his Mossad handler (the late John Hurt), the mission goes sideways and he learns that he's a pawn in a much bigger plan.

Set at the moment when the Berlin Wall is coming down, the film opens as Ari tries to extract a mole and spirit him back to Israel. We've got a clip below.
