The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

If Superman just isn't your class of hero, then maybe it's time to check out Henry Cavill as CIA agent Napoleon Solo and Armie Hammer as his unlikely KGB agent counterpart Illya Kuryakin in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Based on the classic TV series of the same names, these two agents must team up to stop a massive international criminal organization. The first trailer has just arrived, and it certainly feels like a Guy Ritchie film, complete with some sexy 60s style and panache. Cavill is doing a pretty interesting accent and voice (inspired by the series?), and Hammer goes full Russian. It doesn't look half-bad. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Guy Ritchie's The Man from U.N.C.L.E. from Warner Bros. Pictures:

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

At the height of the Cold War, CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) must put aside longstanding hostilities to team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe. Guy Ritchie (Snatch) directs The Man from U.N.C.L.E. from a script by Lionel Wigram (Sherlock Holmes) and the film will arrive late this summer on August 14th.

    Looks awesome!Cavill is slaying on this one!
  • Jon Odishaw
    So weird everyone talking differently than usual. Especially Jared Harris. And on a side note what exactly the fuck is going on in this movie exactly? That trailer, while intriguing, was aclusterfuck
  • NathanDewey
    Great! Adding this to the most anticipated list.
  • Chris Groves
    For whatever reason, these 'quirky/campy spy movies' just don't click with me. Kingsman is getting great reviews, and this looks like it could/should be entertaining as well...this just might not be my genre.

    I was really excited for this, but after watching the trailer, I'm a bit disappointed. I loved Guy Ritchie's direction on the Sherlock movies, and this has the same feel, I just feel like Cavill is doing an impression of Robert Vaughn and Armie Hammer is doing a really terrible Russian accent. It looks like Guy Ritchie, but doesn't feel right. I'm...kinda bummed...

      Sherlock movies were pretty awful ... Downside of this trailer is a hint of likeness with them ...

        Opinions are like a$$holes; Everyone's got one and they usually have holes.
        • shiboleth
          It seems that you are hiding in one of these... Of course, there is also something else to know about and do with the opinions, but that looks very far and unreachable from your hole ...

    Good for Cavill for not wanting to stay "typecast" as superman. He's a good actor, very charismatic. I hope things work out for him. Might he be too much (body type-wise) for a Bond franchise? Just throwing it out there.
    I'll be damned if these don't make for a great duo! This film just looks slick and fun.
  • Armitall
    That poster photoshop tho, Cavill looks like a wedding cake figure ;P It looks better as thought it would. But then again it's Guy Ritchie. Not sold on the russian accent but than again not a fan of Armie Hammer neither.

  • shiboleth
    Nothing special, but then again, it looks like it could be at least some fun for some time ...

    Love Guy Ritchie's style. First thing I ever watched from Guy Ritchie was the BMW short film "Star" was too young when Snatch and LSATSB came out. Liked everything since and I really am digging this trailer.
  • Rock n Rollllll
