The Man From U.N.C.L.E.: Six reasons to watch the 1960s spy movie!
The Man From U.N.C.L.E.: Six reasons to watch the 1960s spy movie!Published Friday, Jul 31 2015, 16:20 BST | By Lara Martin
Any movie that has Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer in it together gets a big thumbs up from us, especially when you throw in an explosive storyline and fab fashion, so we'll be first in line when The Man From U.N.C.L.E. hits cinemas next month.
But as well as the obviously ridiculously attractive leading men, there are more reasons why we are placing this flick on our summer movie must-see list...
1. Henry Cavill
Enough said. We would probably pay good money just to watch Mr Cavill paint a wall. Or sit and say nothing. And we're pretty sure a lot of you would too! The ridiculously swoonsome British actor has that old Hollywood movie star charm, like one of the matinee idols from back in the day. He became a global star playing Superman in Man Of Steel, giving us all a renewed interest in superhero movies.
2. Armie Hammer
Also winning over our hearts is the very cute Armie Hammer, who is best known for playing the Winklevoss twins in The Social Network. Sadly this time around there is only one of him in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.! He plays Russian KGB agent Illya Kuryakin, who must work with Henry's character to stop the villains.
3. The amazing 1960s style
We absolutely LOVE the classic '60s style. Bright colours, vibrant prints, mini skirts. We kind of wish we could live just one day in that era. Audrey Hepburn, Twiggy, Brigitte Bardot, there were so many gorgeous '60s icons whose fashion, hair and make-up we still copy to this day. We'll be lusting over leading ladies Alicia Vikander and Elisabeth Debicki as they showcase some of the decade's most iconic looks
4. Alicia Vikander i.e. the new It Girl of Hollywood
And speaking of Alicia, the Swedish-born actress is fast becoming one of the most in-demand stars in Hollywood. She started her career on a Swedish TV show before making the leap to the silver screen. She's received critical acclaim for her role in movies including Swedish drama Pure and Oscar-nominated A Royal Affair.
5. David Beckham!
Yes. That David Beckham! The former footballer has a cameo appearance in the movie, which is directed by his pal Guy Ritchie. It's his first big Hollywood role and we can't wait to see it! We're also intrigued as to who or what he is playing as Guy hinted we may not recognise Becks at first. "He's marginally disguised but he's in the movie. I mean, once you know who it is, you'll know who it is," he said. As well as David, we'll also see Hugh Grant in the movie. He plays the Head of British Naval Intelligence.
6. The fact the trailer is so blooming good!
The movie's based on the 1960s television show of the same name set in the Cold War period. It tells the story of Agent Napoleon Solo and Agent Illya Kuryakin who work for the United Network Command For Law Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.) to help bring down a mysterious, shady criminal organisation. Their only lead is Gaby, the niece of a German scientist who has mysteriously disappeared.
