Broadsheet Trailer Park: The Man From U.N.C.L.E

What you may need to know:

1. Secret agents Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) join forces to stop a mysterious international criminal organization from destabilizing the fragile balance of power and the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology.

2. The 1960s Robert Vaughn / David McCallum TV show gets the Sherlock Holmes treatment from director Guy Ritchie.

3. Ritchie’s recent good fortune is a massive turnaround from his mid-noughties slump, which included inflicting Revolver (2005) on the world and marrying Madonna.

4. If Cavill and so-hot-right-now (thank you Xposé) Jamie Dornan ever met it would unravel the very fabric of the space-time continuum.

5. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) is the Cavill trailer that everyone’s waiting for. Word is that it will surface around the release of Mad Max: Fury Road in May.

6. This is Hammer’s first role since Disney’s megaflop, The Lone Ranger in 2013. Incidentally, The Lone Ranger wasn’t a bad movie, but bad press from critics willing it to fail snowballed, and it had the reputation of being a failure long before it was released.

7. In case you’re wondering, U.N.C.L.E. is an acronym for “United Network Command for Law and Enforcement.”

8. Broadsheet Prognosis: De-Bourned Bond.

Release Date: August 14

      No. The critics took against it because agenda. There can be no other explanation. And everyone knows that people never go to movies that the critics don’t like.

          Clampers: “My desires are…Unconventional.”

          Janet: “So show me!”

    I remember the ’60’s.
    – The moment I learnt how to pronounce ‘Illya Kuryakin’ properly I knew I was ready for Primary School.

    They were simpler times.

    We don’t need to go back there.
