Warner Bros. has debuted the first three clips from "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," director Guy Ritchie's take on the 1960s television series.
Starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, the spy thriller is set at the height of the Cold War, as CIA agent Napoleon Solo and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin are forced to set aside their differences and work to together to stop a mysterious criminal organization from upending the balance of power between the United States and the Soviet Union.
The first clip appears to depict an early first encounter between Kuryakin (Hammer) and Solo (Cavill), with the latter directing Alicia Vikander's high-speed getaway from the back seat of the car. The second offers a bit of a breather, introducing Hugh Grant's Mr. Waverly into the mix, while the third ratchets up the action again, with a bickering Solo and Kuryakin trying to make an escape on a speed boat amid a hail of gunfire.
Also starring Jared Harris and Elizabeth Debicki, "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." opens Aug. 14.
