Warner Brothers has released a second trailer for Guy Ritchie’s (Sherlock Holmes: Book of Shadows) The Man from U.N.C.L.E. The film looks to have that cool factor that spy movies need. Will it be enough? Can Superman (Henry Cavil) and the Lone Ranger (Armie Hammer) actually play cold war spies? We will find out in August.
Synopsis: Action Adventure. A fresh take on the hugely popular 1960s television series,“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” is 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 Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer). 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.
The film features Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, with Jared Harris, Hugh Grant and is directed by Guy Ritchie.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in theaters and IMAX on August 14th, 2015.
