“Avengers: Age of Ultron” (May 1): “Avengers” is a hard act to follow. Joss Whedon’s superhero epic was both a critical success and a box office bonanza. By this point, fans are looking for a sign of weakness. But if there are any, they’re not evident in the trailers (...).
“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” (Aug. 14): Henry Cavill — known for his previous roles as Jesus and Superman — gets a little more down to earth with this adaptation of the popular ’60s television show. And it’s hard to deny that Guy Ritchie’s take on the stylish spy drama is absolutely delectable. It’s hard not to grin while watching Cavill bouncing off Armie Hammer as a Russian spy.
