The Man From U.N.C.L.E. , starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, is a re-imagining of the classic TV show of the same name, and seeing as it's been over 50 years since the first episode was broadcast, we can't see any better time for it.
Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, this 1960's based spy caper tells the story of a CIA agent (Cavill) and a KBG operative (Hammer) who must put aside their nations' hostilities and team up to take on a mysterious international organisation looking to profit off the demand for nuclear weapons.
The duo's only lead, the daughter of a missing German scientist, who just so happens to be their only way to infiltrate this criminal organisation. Their only hope is to track down this scientist before it's too late and the world succumbs to the greatest catastrophe it has ever seen.
Sounds intense, right? Well it's been directed by Guy Ritchie, who co-wrote the film with Lionel Wigram, the producer Ritchie's two Sherlock films, so it's safe to say we're not expecting it to lag in pacing, action, or dialogue. Throw in the glamorous locations, beautiful cars and vintage clothes on show in the trailer and we can't help but get excited.
The film isn't being released until the August 14th, but we're working with Warner Bros. to host an advanced screening of the film on August 12th in The Light House Cinema, Dublin, along with an accompanying reception.
The screening, as well as the reception, are Italian themed so we're expecting to see as many suits, shirts, leather shoes, belts and braces as the eye can handle. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is head over to this page, and answer a simple question.
