Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill star in the upcoming film based on a 1960s TV favorite--The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and a new trailer promoting the movie was just released. Henry Cavill stars as CIA agent Napoleon Solo, while Armie Hammer stars as KGB agent Illya Kuryakin. The two put aside their differences to stop an international crime organization that is set on committing worldwide harm.

Hugh Grant plays the role of the head of U.N.C.L.E., which as those who loved the TV show know means United Network Command for Law and Enforcement.

"They're both wonderful people and a pleasure to work with," Cavill says of Armie Hammer and Hugh Grant.

He even admits that lots of joking goes around on set.

"Any funny stories I'm going to keep to myself, though. No telling tales out of school," Henry Cavill adds.

Guy Ritchie directs The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and Cavill--also known for his role as Superman--calls it "a cool, sexy and especially not heavy Cold War spy thriller."

In addition to Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, and Hugh Grant, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. will star Alicia Vikander in the lead female role as the daughter of a missing German scientist who helps Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill's characters infiltrate the international criminal organization. Elizabeth Debicki plays the role of Victoria Vinciguerra, who is the driving force behind a worldwide shipping company with a rather questionable background.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. won't hit theaters until August 14th, so that gives fans of Armie Hammer, Henry Cavill, Hugh Grant, and more the likely opportunity to see even more trailers promoting the film.

Did you watch The Man from U.N.C.L.E. on TV in the 1960s? Will you likely add this to your list of must-see summer films?
