Warner Bros. has debuted the trailer and poster for director Guy Ritchie’s big screen adaptation of ’60s TV series The Man From U.N.C.L.E., featuring super spies Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill), Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) and Gaby Teller (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.
The film stars Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Jared Harris, Elizabeth Debicki, Luca Calvani and Hugh Grant. The script was written by Ritchie and Lionel Wigram, and the action adventure was produced by Ritchie, Wigram, John Davis, Steve Clark-Hall and executive produced by David Dobkin.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. will be released in theaters on August 14, 2015.
