Early word of mouth says that The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is a lot of fun, and it may turn out to be another stealth hit for director Guy Ritchie. With some other big budget blockbusters currently hogging the summer movie spotlight, we haven't heard too much about this thriller, which is based on the classic TV show. But Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer are said to have great chemistry, and a franchise is most likely in the cards. While we haven't seen any new footage since the first trailer debuted this past Feburary, today we get a slew of new photos that show off the movie's two leading men, their director and leading lady Alicia Vikander.
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.
These latest images put Henry Cavill front and center as Solo, with Armie Hammer tagging along behind as Kuryakin. The movie promises one of the best Vespa scooter chases ever committed to celluloid. And here, we get to see a couple other stunt scenes in action. While it's not high on everyone's radar right this second, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. will likely close out the summer with a big colorful bang when it hits this August. Take a look, and stand by, as the next trailer is sure to drop any second now!
