New U.N.C.L.E. Stills, New Details, That Transatlantic Accent

What can we say, we have to agree with Audrey.. that accent is as sexy as Solo, and it comes with a NEW STILL from the film: Hello Henry in a Vespa! (it was the last scene shot in Rome, don't miss the rest from that night).

USA Today is giving The Man from U.N.C.L.E. a shout out, in their August movie preview:

A film adaptation of the '60s espionage TV series, starring Hammer and Cavill as agents in this Cold War-era action comedy.

The Journal Sentinel also mentions the film in their Summer movie guide:

The 1960s TV spy series gets a big-screen sheen, with Henry Cavill (the artist also known as the "Man of Steel") as CIA operative Napoleon Solo, Armie Hammer as KGB agent Illya Kuryakin, and Hugh Grant as their stiff-upper-lip boss.

And Entertainment Weekly has shared an artist rendering of what looks like an awesome scene in the film, with some cool details by director Guy Ritchie.

"Before Solo and Kuryakin buddy up, though, they’re hardcore enemies. In one extended chase sequence, Solo and Teller elude Kuryakin by zip-lining across the Berlin Wall. “What we’re trying to capture are iconic memories of the East-meets-West scenario,” Ritchie says. “Getting over the Wall is part of that world.” It was also easier said than done—both in real life and on screen"…

This is more of what you can find in the print issue of their Summer preview via @VanessaPerez791.

After getting that exciting teaser, you can see why Total Film is predicting big success for U.N.C.L.E. (via).

But back to that Transatlantic accent..

A cultivated or acquired version of the English language once found in certain aristocratic elements of American society and taught for use in the American theatre. It is not a vernacular typical of any location, but a blend of American English and British English without favoring either.

We could never get tired of hearing it ;)

Meanwhile Radya couldn't stay away from Solo, when she saw him at her local theater in Singapore.. can you blame her? 

And more promo posters from around the world -- This time spotted in Australia and Taiwan!

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is getting closer, four months from next Tuesday (U.S./UK) we'll finally get to watch Henry give us his best spy performance.. and you know he has it in him.
