Canadian fans lined up by the red carpet at Scotiabank Theatre in Toronto last night to catch a peek of the stunning stars of The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’s exclusive debut and oh what a gorgeous screening it was!
It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s Superman! Yes you read write, the extremely captivating cast of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. consists of the chiseled Man of Steel himself, Henry Cavill, aka Superman…my superhero…*sigh!* Cavill stars as Napoleon Solo along with the equally handsome and talented Arnie Hammer from The Social Network as Illya Kuryakin. The pair looked absolutely dapper taking pictures on the red carpet in their tailored suits alongside their stunning co-stars, Alicia Vikander and Elizabeth Debicki.
If the name of the film sounds familiar it’s because it’s a reboot of the well-known 1960s television series with the same name. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. takes place at the height of the Cold War and centers on U.N.C.L.E (United Network Command for Law and Enforcement) agents, CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin. The two are forced to team up on a joint mission, despite their longstanding conflict, in order to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is working to proliferate nuclear weapons. The duo must race against time to prevent a worldwide disaster and their only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist who is their key to penetrate the criminal organization.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E also stars Alicia Vikander from Anna Karenina, Elizabeth Debicki from The Great Gatsby, with Jared Harris from Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows, and Hugh Grant as Waverly. The screenplay was written by Guy Ritchie and Lionel Wigram and directed by Guy Ritchie.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is said to be chic, stylish, comedic and filled with action. The film will be released on August 14, 2015.
