With just two months now until the arrival of the big-screen remake of The Man From U.N.C.L.E., one of the most stylish TV shows ever, it would seem the perfect time for a new trailer to be released. Spookily enough, that's exactly what's happened, and all the signs are that Guy Ritchie's retelling of the exploits of Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin will be as triumphant as his work on the two Sherlock Holmes movies.
Set in the early 1960s, the plot of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is straight out of the pages of a spy novel. The world is once again under threat from a mysterious criminal organisation who plan to hold Governments to ransom with nuclear weapons. The only hope for humanity is if the two major superpowers can work together, and so the KGB and the CIA send their best men on a joint mission to save the world – and possibly drink a few cocktails, drive speedboats rather fast and kiss some pretty girls along the way.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. will armed and dangerous on Cineworld screens from 14 August.
