The Warner Bros. panel at Comic-Con 2015 is highly anticipated for other superhero activity, but Guy Ritchie’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E also debuted a new extended trailer on Saturday.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E is a reboot of the 1960’s TV series with an action espionage theme. Ritchie’s rendition stars Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, and is described as such:
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.
If you like that secret agent espionage feel, with what looks like some great blend of action thrills and laughs from the trailer, The Man from U.N.C.L.E should be worth a chance. The film also stars Alicia Vikander, Hugh Grant, and Jared Harris. It hits theaters on August 14.
