From co-writer and director Guy Ritchie, THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. is based on the classic TV show of the same name and unites Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer as a couple of rival agents, forced to team up to stop mysterious international criminal organization. The film doesn’t actually arrive in cinemas until August, which seems like an absolute age away. Here we have the first trailer for the film, which as you can see, is full of all of Ritchie’s fast-paced editing and wacky cinematography.

Synopsis: 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.

Watch the trailer and check out the first US poster for the film below.
