Well here's a film I never expected to see. A big-budget re-imagining of the classic 60s spy show from the director of Sherlock Holmes. The Man From UNCLE trailer goes like this.
Yup, that's Superman being forced to team up with The Lone Ranger to stop something sinister from happening in the 60s, while Hugh Grant looks on and says somewhat funny things. First impressions make it look extremely over-directed (not surprising from Ritchie) but otherwise attractive. Armie Hammer seems well cast as Russian agent Illya Kuryakin though we're less gone on Cavill, who doesn't seem so comfy with the American accent and the suave thing he's trying on. Then there'sAlicia Vikander who is literally everywhere this year and Richard's kid Jared Harris.
Ritchie directs and also worked on the script with Sherlock Holmes scribbler Lional Wigram. Maybe it'll be a laugh.
The Man from UNCLE is in cinemas on the 14th of August 2015.
