The Man from UNCLE Trailer

I don’t know that I’ve ever seen an episode of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., though I have seen the George Lazenby sequence, in which he plays James Bond, from The Return of the Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Nonetheless, the trailer for the new Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes) adaptation of the 1960s television series dropped last night. And, well, take a look:

I like it. It feels very Ritchie. As I said to a coworker this morning, “It feels like Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes, but with spies in the 1960s.” Yes, that’s the Duke of Suffolk (Henry Cavill from The Tudors) as Napoleon Solo. And Hugh Grant pops up as, I presume, some sort of M-type character.

I don’t go to many movies anymore, but this definitely looks like the kind of movie I’d go see.
