Birthday Surprise, Top Gear Episode Update, U.N.C.L.E. Promo



What an exciting time to be a Henry Cavill fan!

While we wait for word on the start of production for Stratton, we've had a wave of international appearances, all leading up to Batman v Superman at Comic-Con. Right after that comes The Man from U.N.C.L.E. promo and release, and that's just the stuff we know about.  

Henry turns 32 a week from today, and we have a special birthday surprise that you helped us put together. We'd like to thank everyone who pitched in.


If you didn't participate, get those birthday wishes ready (videos, collages, pictures), we'll be asking you to share them on May 5th!

Now on to a few cool updates. The Wall Street Journal has mentioned The Man from U.N.C.L.E., in a new article titled "How to Make TV Shows into Movies."



Along with “Mission: Impossible,” there is Guy Ritchie’s“The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” (Aug. 14) based on the 1960s spy series. Like the show, the movie is set during the Cold War. The film adds glamorous European locations, car chases and explosions, with Henry Cavill as the American agent Napoleon Solo and Armie Hammer as the Russian Ilya Kuryakin, working to thwart a nuclear attack by an underground group.


And speaking about gorgeous sets, director Guy Ritchie has been sharing some cool set photos and this is the latest one. It's at Villa Farnese in the outskirts of Rome, a beautiful location that we can't wait to see in the film.


Finally, a quick update on the status of Henry's Top Gear appearance. A few days ago the BBC said they will go ahead and air the footage they had shot for those final episodes before Jeremy Clarkson was fired last month (via Mashable):

The controller of BBC2 said the material filmed for the last three episodes in the current season will be aired as early as the summer, but there isn't quite enough for three, one-hour-long episodes.

We'll keep tabs on this story, and hopefully have good news for you soon.

  1. Nice to hear about the Top Gear appearance. I'm looking forward to seeing the episode and the interviews with Henry promoting Man From Uncle. Hopefully we will get to see Henry and Armie together for some interviews because they had such great chemistry together at Cinemacon

    1. Yes, the Top Gear stuff sounds really cool and it will probably air right before U.N.C.L.E. opens which is even better. As for CinemaCon, that was just them getting started, imagine their back and forth after they've done a couple of dozen of those.. that promo tour is going to be a lot of fun!

  3. Ok this has nothing to do with top gear or MFU but I saw Avengers....IN MY SUPERMAN T-SHIRT!!! Representing totally and what comes on the screen? B vs. Hunk of burning love...omg! It looks amazing on the big screen! Can I tell you how everyone cheered when Henry was on the screen, they went nuts over the preview. I stood up and flashed the glorious "S" at some dude with a batman T-shirt lol.. Thankfully he laughed and everyone else as well, I think I would have gotten my ass kicked if the majority we're not Superman fans!
    Just wanted to share an awesome moment:D

    8. Ok Jai sorry, I keep forgetting.
      Does it have pulp? I would say - NO. Not that it wasn't good but I feel the pulp comes from the darker characters, I feel that DC holds that, hands down. DC is just getting started. What they have planned for JL is completely insane. I feel I got the first taste from Christopher Nolan's Dark Night series, the Dark Night itself is a perfect example of having plenty of pulp. I mean - Tom Hardy as "Bane" brilliant!!!! The characters in DC are larger than life and the villains- look at Micheal Shannon as "ZOD" come on, you can't beat that performance with a bat! He was exceptional as Zod.
      So going forward, JL will definitely rule. Zacks vision for JL is going to be mind blowing. look at "Man of Steel" simply with out a doubt - genius! and he struck gold casting Henry as Superman.
      So I hope that puts your doubts to rest. Like I said not that AV. Wasn't good but JL will give you more.

    9. This is like my favorite rock song, what you just said LOL!
      Simply Nirvana....awesome! I have always thought DC had more depth and darkness about it but it's just awesome to hear it from someone else. Not stepping on Marvels shoes but I'm a DC fan so deal with it lol...
      thanks baby girl!

    10. Sorry guys. Top Gear, ok really hope they air the episode. I don't see why not, I mean whatever happened with the host is done so that should not affect what has been filmed, especially an episode with Henry Cavill who is a big Hollywood star and would bring major cuddos to the show.

    11. I second that jai. I really hope they air it. River you're awesome! I totally agree with you on the AV. Vs. JL And thank you for risking your life at a Marvel movie wearing a Superman T! Lol...that's so cool!
      Look forward to the Siam Cup updates, really excited about that. Everyone please pitch in, a little goes a long way.
      Thanks Hcn!

    2. Absolutely. Henry is deserving of all our support, such a wonderful person who does good works for others. He is selfless and very kind. Wonderful to his fans and more importantly cares for his family. I very happy to see that Charlie spends more time with him in LA, it must be very hard being away from home and not having your family close to you, especially your siblings. Wonderful to see them together.
      River I think you're hysterical lol...Solo? Alone? Please don't get therapy, you don't need it!
