Henry Cavill spies to save the world in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. trailer

Warner Bros. has unleashed an action-packed second trailer for this summer’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E., a big-screen update of the popular sixties series. Set during the cold war, Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer star as CIA and KGB agents, respectively, who are coerced into teaming up for a special mission to take out an international terrorist organisation.

Should the mysterious sect succeed, the world will become inundated with nuclear weaponry - so it’s up to this odd couple to stop ‘em dead in their tracks. As serious as their objective may be, director Guy Ritchie - who also wrote the script - packs in a lot of levity into this trailer, and plenty of action. Check it out below:

As Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin, Cavill and Hammer are both in their element. Dodging bullets, engaging in a lot of innuendo, and generally making it look all-too-easy being a spy; Ritchie’s penchant for buddy action camaraderie has clearly rubbed off on this pair. Step aside, 007....

Co-starring Hugh Grant, Alicia Vikander and Jared Harris The Man From U.N.C.L.E. arrives in the UK and US on August 14, 2015.
