Warner Bros. has released the first several clips from Guy Ritchie's upcoming spy movie The Man From U.N.C.L.E..
Many actors have turned down the role of Superman out of fears of being typecast--preventing them from inhabiting other roles. Cavill will test out this theory when he tries to rejuvenate another potential franchise with The Man From U.N.C.L.E., which is based on the popular 1960s television series.
Check out the first 3 clips in the videos below.
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 Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer). 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 From U.N.C.L.E. will arrive in theaters August 14th!
