The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Comic-Con Trailer!

07.12.2015 – This will probably one of the rare movies from Warner Bros. Picture Studios, that I’ll spend my money on and its not that I’m declining some of them. But I’m not a trying-hard movie buff wanting to see all the films and giving all the thumbs up.

Honestly after seeing “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” Trailer I find “Man from U.N.C.L.E.” more appealing. C’mon Henry Cavill as Napoleon Solo makes perfect sense.

Since press releases where sent to my email in September 2013 I find the film intriguing. Growing up watching James Bond films, I have seen the 1990s take on the TV classic “The Saint” or even Tom Cruise’s take on Mission Impossible where mighty impressive. But a TV classic from the 1960s like “Man from U.N.C.L.E.” produced in this generation but the setting is still from that particular 1960s era seems way better than all three Austin Powers films.

Joking aside its one of the most anticipated films that has Henry Cavill not portraying a Kyrptionian, and still playing a straight American agent who’s actually British, while Armie Hammer gets his chance to redeem himself not some dead cowboy resurrected by a Shaman seem quite a gentleman. Hammer portrays the Russian agent Illiya Kuryakin and he fits well opposite Cavill.

If anyone of you wasn’t born when the original “Man from U.N.C.L.E.” was aired on NBC from 1964-1968 or chance upon the TV movie that reunited the cast in 19893 no need to dig up what was the series was like. The modern take of this period film from the 1960s is sexier than looking up Alicia Vikander portraying the girl in the middle of these storied agents of their respective employers.

To round off the cast you got Hugh Grant as Mr. Waverly and he’s not the guy who hails from Noting Hill. He’s just as cool as the leading cats in this espionage film that certainly as impressive as the other contemporaries with the same theme.

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 screenplay is written by Ritchie and Wigram, who also serve as producers. John Davis (“Chronicle”) and Steve Clark-Hall (“RocknRolla,” the “Sherlock Holmes” films) are also producing. David Dobkin is executive producer. Ritchie’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes two-time Oscar®-nominated director of photography John Mathieson (“Gladiator”), production designer Oliver Scholl (“Jumper”), editor James Herbert (the “Sherlock Holmes” films), Oscar®-nominated costume designer Joanna Johnston (“Lincoln”) and Oscar®-winning key makeup and hair designer Sarah Monzani (“Quest for Fire,” upcoming “Edge of Tomorrow”).
