Today, we've got the first look at the upcoming The Man From U.N.C.L.E. remake! What? This isn't just what you wanted? Well, come on, it's good enough.
The filmic remake of the classic 1960s spy thriller series is set to see Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer team up during the Cold War to take down a clandestine criminal organization hell-bent on destruction (for some reason or another). Check it out below:
The film, directed by Snatch and Lock Stock director Guy Ritchie, certainly seems to be sticking that classic 1960s spy aesthetic. I mean, are they just trendy sunglasses or some kind of super-spy gadget? Maybe both? Here's the synopsis:
Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) stars as Napoleon Solo opposite Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as Illya Kuryakin in director Guy Ritchie’s action adventure 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.
The Man of U.N.C.L.E. is expected in theaters from August 14th, 2015.
