Guy Ritchie's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. will hit theaters January 2015

Feb. 20, 2014by: Alex Maidy

Guy Ritchie's adaptation of the television series THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. is going to be dropped right into the wasteland of movie releases that is January. But, with recent shifts pushing higher profile movies into the winter months, the spy thriller could actually end up making a nice profit.

Starring Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill, THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. was originally set to star Tom Cruise who dropped out in favor of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5. But, the cast also includes Hugh Grant, Jared Harris and Alicia Vikander. Guy Ritchie's distinct visual style should be an interesting fit for this James Bond-esque plot.

The story follows special agents Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer), who work for the mysterious United Network Command for Law and Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.).

I would expect THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. to share the same comedic sense as Ritchie's SHERLOCK HOLMES films, but I wouldn't be shocked if it was a straight dramatic film either. The two young stars of the film should play well off of one another. This definitely has franchise potential.

THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. will open January 16, 2015.

January is the perfect time of the year for an old fashioned spy thriller. That's why JACK RYAN is a hit! lol

The Lone Ranger and Superman attempt to debunk all that "boring old-fashioned hero" nonsense.

This is going to be interesting. Let's just hope Ritchie doesn't go overboard again with the slomo-rewind-replay thing like in Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows. It gets annoying after a while.

I'm not sure the January stigma really holds anymore. Thoughout the years, we've seen movies open either to great acclaim (The Grey, Zero Dark Thirty, Lone Survivor) or great success (Taken, Ride Along, Paul Blart) or both. It couldn't be that bad.

Sure December, but those were very limited releases. It wasn't until January that they finally got wide release.

I highly doubt they will take the dramatic route because the show itself was a bit corny at times but I trust Ritchie's style of direction.
