This year seems to be the year of the spy, as we have quite a few releases coming down the way featuring covert operations in 2015. With Kingsman: The Secret Service opening this weekend, WB has decided to release its first trailer for the new Guy Richie film, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., along with it. Starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, the film is an adaptation of the popular 1960’s spy series of the same name.
The trailer seems to be flashy, fun, and a great summer blockbuster. With many of Ritche’s specific flourishes, this looks like it could be a really fun time at the theaters. You’d almost think that Cavill could be James Bond, and it’s no wonder he almost got the role once before. Here’s hoping it’s also an uptick for Hammer’s career, who has taken an slight down turn since The Social Network.
Check out the trailer for The Man From U.N.C.L.E.!
Henry Cavill (“Man of Steel”) stars as Napoleon Solo opposite Armie Hammer (“The Social Network”) as Illya Kuryakin in director Guy Ritchie’s “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” a fresh take on the hugely popular 1960s television series.
Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” centers on CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin. Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two 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, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.
