AceShowbiz - Warner Bros. has released the first trailer of "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.". The film, adapted from the 1960s TV series of the same name, is set at the height of the Cold War and centers on Henry Cavill's CIA agent Napoleon Solo and Armie Hammer's Russian KGB agent Illya Kuryakin who are forced to team up as they take on the same enemy.
The trailer, debuted on Wednesday, February 11, offers glimpses at the rivalry between the two agents. They're involved in a car chase before eventually agreeing to work together. As the video unfolds, they admit it's hard for them to get along. "I work better alone," Solo tells Kuryakin at one point, to which Kuryakin responds, "I work better alone, too."
The two agents are joining forces to stop a mysterious criminal organization with ties to former Nazis from proliferating 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.
Directed by Guy Ritchie, "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." also stars Alicia Vikander, Jared Harris, Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Debicki among others. The action comedy flick is scheduled to open in U.S. theaters on August 14.
