Guy Ritchie and stars Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer are ready to save the world with a good helping of sixties cool in the brand new trailer for The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
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 (Cavill) and KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Hammer). Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organisation, which is bent on destabilising 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 organisation, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.
The new trailer gives a larger focus to the film’s story, which finds sworn enemies, Napoleon Solo (Cavill) and Illya Kuryakin (Hammer), teaming up to stop the threat of a rogue criminal organisation who have commandeered an atomic bomb. Director Guy Ritchie keeps the old school spy action fast, throwing plenty of twists in the audience’s direction, while also amping up the film’s 1960s era with some very slick production and wardrobe design. In addition to Cavill and Hammer, we’re introduced to Elizabeth Debicki who portrays the stunning yet deadly Victoria Vinciguerra.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. looks to be a slickly made spy thriller and is set to bring a good dose of class, and sophistication back to cinemas on August 13.
