11th Mar 16 | Entertainment NewsHenry Cavill thinks his box office bomb The Man from U.N.C.L.E. should have been marketed differently.
Henry Cavill admits making loads of a money is one of the primary motivations behind his acting career. The 32-year-old Man of Steel star has amassed a $14 million (£9.8 million) fortune, according toCelebrityNetWorth.com, and he has no shame being honest about the financial perks of his profession.
Henry co-starred with Armie Hammer in director Guy Ritchie's 2015 release The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and although there was a huge buzz around the flick, which was made with a budget of $75 million (£52 million), it didn't do very well commercially, having earned just $109 million (£76 million) at the global box office.
"It didn't do badly, but it should have done better, because everyone I've spoken to loved it," he notes. "Maybe it should have been marketed slightly differently so people went in feeling that it was something else. I snuck into the Odeon (British movie theatre) to see it on High Street Kensington, and all the trailers beforehand were for these explosive action movies. They were being set up and prepped for a sort of Mission Impossible-type film, and it's not - it's a tongue-in-cheek spy thriller with some genuine comedy to it."
