uncle feature

Warner Bros. Pictures has shifted the release of their upcoming The Man From U.N.C.L.E.. Originally set for release on January 16, 2015, the film will now arrive seven months later on August 14.

Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. centers on CIA agent Solo (Henry Cavill) and KGB agent Kuryakin (Armie Hammer). Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.

Also starring Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, Jared Harris, Hugh Grant and Luca Calvani, the film is directed by Guy Ritchie from a script he co-wrote with Lionel Wigram.

The new date puts The Man From U.N.C.L.E. up against Jared Hess’ untitled armored car project and the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton.
