The first trailer for director Guy Ritchie's adaptation of 1960s TV series "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." is finally here, and based on the slick-looking clip, it seems that the long-gestating project was worth the wait.
Henry Cavill stars as CIA agent Napolean Solo and Armie Hammer plays KGB operative Illya Kuryakin, two wildly different men who nevertheless team up to take down a shady organization with Nazi ties that's hellbent on threatening the globe with a nuclear device. Unfortunately, like the series, the flick is set during the height of the Cold War -- and neither man can stand the other.
As Solo puts it, "Things could get a little messy" with all that tension, and as we see in the trailer, they certainly do. But despite Solo and Kuryakin's claims that they both work better alone, the pair is inevitably destined to unite for the greater good.
"The Man From U.N.C.L.E." also stars Hugh Grant, Jared Harris, Elizabeth Debicki, and Alicia Vikander. It hits theaters on August 14.
