The Man From U.N.C.L.E. held its Canadian theatrical premiere in Toronto on Tuesday evening this week, with all four stars–Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, and Elizabeth Debicki–showing up at the Shangri-La Toronto for a special pre-screening reception, presented by Audi, followed by a red carpet at the Scotiabank Theatre.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. opens in theatres on Friday, August 14.
Synopsis: Henry Cavill stars as Napoleon Solo opposite Armie Hammer as Illya Kuryakin in director Guy Ritchie’s action adventure The Man from U.N.C.L.E., a fresh take on the hugely popular 1960s television series.
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 and KGB agent Kuryakin. 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.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. also stars Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, with Jared Harris, and Hugh Grant as Waverly.
