‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ Trailer: Guy Ritchie’s Latest Gets Action-Packed at Comic-Con 2015
Just as The Man From U.N.C.L.E. portion of the WB panel ended at Comic-Con 2015, the extended trailer for Guy Ritchie’s upcoming action flick has arrived online. And it’s very extended — the new trailer features five minutes of action-packed footage from Ritchie’s big screen reboot of the classic series, starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer.
Although the big draw at today’s WB panel is two bigger, more famous heroes, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. still offered a rather entertaining appetizer with this five-minute, extended trailer. Opening with a fun car sequence, the trailer goes on to provide the sort of charismatic action we’ve come to expect from Ritchie’s films.
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.
