The main trailer has been released for The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Director Guy Ritchie puts a fresh take on the popular 1960s television series with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer leading the cast. Ritchie wrote the screenplay with Lionel Wigram from a story by Jeff Kleeman & David Campbell Wilson and Guy Ritchie & Lionel Wigram.
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.
The film also stars Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina), Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby), with Jared Harris (Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows), and Hugh Grant as Waverly.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is released in the UK on 14th August 2015.
