5 Things We Learned From 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' Trailer, People Magazine Interview

The internet is still buzzing about The Man from U.N.C.L.E. trailer, and this weekend Henry is back on the big screen, as the film's first teaser debuts in theaters attached to Kingsman: The Secret Service. It comes a couple of days after U.N.C.L.E. was released online (read the awesome reviews, see the hot new stills), and here are a few of the things we've learned since then.

1) The accent everyone is gushing about, was a dedicated effort. In an exclusive interview with People magazine, Henry spoke about the work he put into it:

"The toughest thing was finding Solo's voice," adding that he and director Guy Ritchie "went back and forth even throughout shooting to refine how he sounds."

2) No one can rock a suit or sunglasses like Henry Cavill.

We kind of already knew that, but this trailer really brought it home. Oscar-nominated Joanna Johnston was in charge of the costumes, and Henry told People the film's unique style helped him get into character, saying that "it's very defining" to act in costume:

"It's always fun working on a costume for a character. Solo has a particular style, which help me get into character."

Henry admitted to the magazine that he hadn't seen the 60s TV series the film is based on, before reading the script. He describes Solo as a "lovable rogue," and despite the inevitable comparisons to Robert Vaughn, Henry said "it's important not to imitate someone else's work." 

3) The music that made the trailer come alive was absolutely funktastic! -- but we're gonna have to wait for the original score.
The familiar song you heard, was 'Funky Music Sho Nuff Turns Me On' by Edwin Starr. Name of the Song tracked down the rest of the music used in the trailer, so give it a listen.

4) Henry remains a gentleman, on and off the set.

This is what he had to say to People, when asked about his experience working with his U.N.C.L.E. costars and director:

"They're both wonderful people and a pleasure to work with," Cavill says of Hammer and Grant, whom he enjoyed joking around with on set. "Any funny stories I'm going to keep to myself, though. No telling tales out of school."

Still, his favorite part was working with Ritchie. "He made the whole experience an absolute pleasure," Cavill says. "I'm lucky to have worked with him."

5) We're in for ONE. HOT. RIDE. -- As Entertainment Tonight describes in a funny post with a series of caps, "The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Is Full of Unreasonably Attractive People." Uhm, Solo in a robe?.. doesn't get any hotter than that!

Henry describes The Man from U.N.C.L.E. as "a cool, sexy and especially not heavy Cold War spy thriller." We're counting down the minutes, until August 14

You've got this Solo ;)

  1. Post-trailer questions about the UNCLE movie.

  2. No funny stories? Seriously? Guy's gonna have to get a clue as to what makes an interview worthwhile....

    1. Guess we have to wait for the Armie Hammer interviews for interest and comedy. He's great fun in interviews.

    2. Now, now.. play nice. This was basically a series of quotes strung together for a one page article. We're sure once they start doing interviews we'll see both their personalities shine.

  3. I would agree on the number of incredibly attractive people in this movie. There's also the attractive Italian actor, Luca (can't remember his last name but it is something like Calavari). I really believe this is going to totally be my type of movie.

    1. Yes! -- Luca Calvani plays the bad guy (we are not looking forward to seeing him beat Solo, as Entertainment Weekly reported after visiting the set). The trailer has been really well received and we are really excited for Henry.

  4. Seriously, what a dashing set of gene pool in every scene. Armie's accent is way sexy. Have enjoyed every single Guy Ritchie flick so I'll be happy to see this one at the theatre.

  5. Any idea on the sunglasses seen on Henry Cavill in this?

  6. Would love to knoe more about the sunglasses too.

  7. Would love to knoe more about the sunglasses too.
