A new trailer for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (all the periods in this title are annoying, can I please skip them next time?) was released last night. The movie comes out on August 14. And both Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer need the momentum. This preview is a pretty good start. It’s slick and campy and I don’t know what’s wrong with me but I got excited seeing Hugh Grant. Also Henry Cavill hasn’t looked this good in a LONG time. When Guy Ritchie goes in on him on a close-up? And I can’t see that he doesn’t know what to do with his pants? He’s beautiful. He’s SO beautiful. He sounds great too. I like the way he enunciates.
I also quite like the chemistry between him and Armie Hammer. And I definitely like how this film has been styled. Alicia Vikander is glorious in her costuming. But will any of this matter in August? Will anyone care? Between now and UNCLE we have several blockbusters on the way, not counting Jurassic World, and including TWO superhero features:
Magic Mike XXL
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
The Fantastic Four
I have movie fatigue just looking at that list, never mind seeing it all.
