Earlier this week, Warner Bros. debuted the first official photo from The Man from U.N.C.L.E. The image arrived as part of the studio's big 2015 movie preview. It offered a first look at the film's trio of stars, Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander, sitting around a table drinking Scotch after some kind of battle ensued. Now, we get our second image from the upcoming adaptation of the popular TV series, and it promises even more action.
In The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Henry Cavill stars as Napoleon Solo opposite Armie Hammer as Illya Kuryakin. This fresh take on the thrilling adventure series is set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War. CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin are forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, and 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.
Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie is behind this late summer release. Check it out as Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer go undercover on their mission in this thrilling espionage tale. And then be sure to check out The Man from U.N.C.L.E. when it hits theaters in August.
