The three clips above have been seen partly in the Trailer for The Man From UNCLE but of course there is more to see.

The first your be forgiven to thinking you seen it all but there is a bit more to the action. The clip titled “Nicely Done” has Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill), Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) and Gaby Teller (Alicia Vikander).

The second title “Special Day” has Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) and Waverly (Hugh Grant) in a plane. The main words spoken by Hugh Grant are those in the clip.

The third and final clip is “Watch Me Work” Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) in a comedy get-away…

The Man from UNCLE – Official Lowdown

[quote_box_center]Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) stars as Napoleon Solo opposite Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as Illya Kuryakin in director Guy Ritchie’s action adventure The Man from U.N.C.L.E., a fresh take on the hugely popular 1960s television series.

Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, the film centers on CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin.

Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology.

The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E also stars Alicia Vikander (“Anna Karenina”), Elizabeth Debicki (“The Great Gatsby”), with Jared Harris (“Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows”), and Hugh Grant as Waverly.

The screenplay was written by Guy Ritchie & Lionel Wigram, who previously collaborated on re-imagining the classic detective Sherlock Holmes in two hit films. The story is by Jeff Kleeman & David Campbell Wilson and Guy Ritchie & Lionel Wigram, based on the television series of the same name.[/quote_box_center]
