Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer go 007 in these new Man From U.N.C.L.E. stills

Based on the TV show of the same name, THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. follows that of CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) in the early 1960s as they participate in a joint mission against a mysterious criminal organization, which is working to proliferate nuclear weapons. The period piece was set to star Tom Cruise before he left to pursue another impossible mission, although it looks like Cavill is fitting in quite nicely. Regardless, Guy Ritchie seems to be channeling a serious Bond vibe with his lead actors and a few new stills have popped up to show you them and Elizabeth Debicki (THE GREAT GATSBY) in action.

Frankly, it's been a good 15 years since I've been impressed with Ritchie's work, but I can hardly blame him for the sub-par stories of the action heavy Sherlock Holmes flicks that paled in comparison to BBC's iteration. This isn't quite on anyone's radar yet, but a trailer should be hitting any day now to give us a taste of what we're in for come the end of this summer. All I know is that Armie Hammer deserves A LOT better than THE LONE RANGER.  So do we for that matter!

THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. his theaters on August 14, 2015.

Release date?

Is this movie going to keep its August 14 release date now that M:I5 is coming on July 31? Seriously WB needs to move it now. Why don't release U.N.C.L.E. in June? I can see this movie fightin' against Ted 2 and Terminator, they are different kind of summer blockbusters, but 2 weeks after MI5 it's dead! Anyway, the movie looks cool.

I like both Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill. And I actually am looking forward to seeing this movie - always a sucker for a good espionage thriller. But does the last picture make anyone else think of Archer with those turtle necks?

Considering Archer is a take-off on stuff like The Man From U.N.C.L.E., that's a compliment.

Great to see Cavill get his chance in doing his own version of "Bond." I believe he screen-tested for the role of 007 back in '05 if I recall.

Screen tested for 007? At the age of 22?

I just realised it's actually the year of spy movies

Kingsman, Spy, Man from UNCLE, Mission: Impossible 5, Spectre... Wow. All we miss is Jason Bourne from this slate!

"All we miss is Jason Bourne from this slate!"

You can just watch any of the Bourne films, they're all interchangeable.

Nothing against you but those films are so overrated.

Exactly why Vaughn left X-Men and got this out first.

Thunderdome, to be honest I actually didn't like the Bourne films. I just mentioned him as one of the more famous film spies.

I completely understand and that's why I pointed out it wasn't a knock against you, hopefully no offense was taken.
I know they're wildly popular films but for me it was the same film three times and I couldn't believe each was so successful. And I think what bothered me more than anything is that the infinitely more entertaining Bond series started taking cues from Bourne which was embarrassing.

Film looks like it's going to be a lot of fun and Cavill and Hammer look absolutely suave as hell.
