Watch: Guy Ritchie's 'Man from U.N.C.L.E.' 5-Min Comic-Con Trailer
"America teaming up with Russia - that doesn't sound very friendly." During the Warner Bros panel in Hall H at Comic-Con 2015, the studio showed an extended 5-minute sizzle reel of footage from Guy Ritchie's The Man from U.N.C.L.E., his 60's spy action thriller. Starring Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill as KGB and CIA (respectively) who must team up during the Cold War and work together to prevent a terrorist from using an atomic bomb. We've already seen two trailers for this movie before, but now they're going all out with showing so much footage, but this looks like so much fun. I'm actually really looking forward to seeing it, I'm a fan of Guy Ritchie's movies and this seems like his anti-Bond Bond movie. And I am down for that.
Here's the new 5-minute Comic-Con trailer for Guy Ritchie's The Man from U.N.C.L.E., direct from WB:
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. So?
Long live the good old cold war! And this looks mighty entertaining! I even like Hammer in this one! Could be a career changer for him.

Looks good. Looks very good. Richie's films are all enjoyable to me. Hammer and Cavill are like a dream team for B-List "Handsomes".

Looks like it could be a new Bond, only fun and entertaining.

Why don't they just show the whole film in the process? And, besides, it seems that Cavil, if that Superman gig falls apart, could be making his way to be a new Bond, right?

Incredibly serious thought about a lot of not so serious movies. However, I have, seriously, to disagree about one thing: second movie about Sherlock Holmes under the rule of Guy Ritchie was bloody awful. Almost amateurish kind of film ...

Thank you for your afterthoughts and for answering back, too ...

This trailer was cut WAY better than the predecessor. Gives it more of the period piece 60's vibe. Looks like James Bond-lite. I'll probably matinee it or wait for the $3 cheap theaters.

Considering the two characters maybe bland totally works?
