WB Reveals First Image, Synopsis: The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Click at your own risk: HQ heaven ahead

Be still our hearts.

A few months after Empire published the first images from The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (shortly after the film was pushed back to August, 2015), Warner Bros. has given us the HQ version of one of them, and it's a beauty.

Collider shared the pic, along with the synopsis: 

Henry Cavill (“Man of Steel”) stars as Napoleon Solo opposite Armie Hammer (“The Social Network”) 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.

We had posted a variation of this description but this is the official one, and like Collider mentioned a trailer can't be that far off. Oh yeah, Solo Time!

2014 In Review: Vote For The Best Fan Picture

When you start a blog in support of an actor, you initially don't know what you're gonna get when it comes to fan encounters. Luckily for us, we struck gold with Henry. In our experience he's one of the nicest, most approachable stars with his fans. In fact some of our best posts have been fan generated, thanks to your pictures and stories after meeting Henry. As 2014 comes to a close, we're putting together a year in review post. We'd love for you to tell us, which was your fave fan pic of the year. Below are the finalists. You can cast your vote on the comments section, we'll announce the top fan photo in our 2014 wrap. 

#1 Gjonnyboy

"We laughed it up, we high fived, it was gang busters!"

We had seen Henry earlier in January with another Detroit fan, but it was Gjonny boy's story coupled with our first look at that purple Under Armour sweater that made this pic a finalist.

#2 The Super beard

This is a group entry, because there was just SO. MUCH. GOODNESS. that day

Automatically a finalist. No need to explain.

#4  Superman lands at LAX

Taha's story landed this hot pic on the list. "Henry definitely loves his fans." 

#5 The napkin misunderstanding guy and Henry reconnect  

Here's another group entry (told you Henry is THE BEST). What a night.

#6 Loud and proud

Alora just about made our year when she met Henry and was not afraid to show her excitement. Plus her story was the sweetest.

#7 Prince Charming aka Henry Cavill

This fan picture stands on its own merit. Jesssteff mentioned that she almost passed out when she met Henry. Can you blame her?

#8 Henry's sweetest gestures

These are gonna be tough to beat. When we saw Josephine's photo with Henry we nearly melted. And then came Ava.

#9 Batman v Superman: Texas Style!

That time when Henry was awesome with absolutely everyone in El Paso.. and we can't thank him enough.

Okay everyone, time to vote!

Exclusive Summer Candids: Henry & His Trainer In Detroit

Henry may have finished filming Batman v Superman in Detroit, but the pics from Michigan keep coming in. Okay, so it's more like we asked the photog who shot these beauties whether he had anything more to share (we're not beyond groveling, these are desperate times.. don't judge). Luckily for us, he delivered!

Randy Chiang tells us he shot these photos of Henry and his trainer, Michael Blevins, around the same time he photographed Henry in his Superman suit and got the best Kal set pics EVAH. Thanks Randy.

Summer, summer, summertiiiime!

Wouldn't you want to know..       

Thereeeee's that smile that makes your heart race.

And those Superman guns representing!

We don't know what's going on here, but carry on.. 

And we're moving! (that crosswalk wait felt like ages).

The reason the #tshirtlove tag exists. Seriously. 


Is that?? is he??? DONE. #deathbysexywhistling

See all the photos in HQ after the break (please credit Chiang if you share).
