London: The Man From U.N.C.L.E. At Somerset House


You don't have to ask us twice, Solo!

The Somerset House has just announced its summer screening lineup, and it includes what they're calling the "People's Premiere" of The Man from U.N.C.L.E.  

Here are the details:

People’s Premiere:
The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
Friday, 7 August 2015
Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House

£24.00 + booking fees

Digital
Certificate 12A
Duration 117mins

An exciting early opportunity to enjoy one of the most eagerly-anticipated films of the summer, as director Guy Ritchie brings the supercharged style of his hit Sherlock Holmes films to this fresh take on the popular 1960s television series. Henry Cavill is CIA agent Napoleon Solo and Armie Hammer is KGB man Illya Kuryakin, two arch-enemies who must put aside longstanding hostilities and embark on a joint mission to prevent a worldwide catastrophe. Perfect period production design and a cast with real chemistry (Hugh Grant, Jared Harris and Alicia Vikander from Ex_Machina also star) ensure that this hugely entertaining spy-high People’s Premiere generates genuine Cold War heat.

Somerset House priority booking opens to our existing e-newsletter subscribers (signed up by 11 May 2015) at 10.00 on Wednesday 13 May 2015.

Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House
6th – 19th August 2015

Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House is back this August for 14 nights of classic, classic, cult and contemporary films, plus new premieres will feature on London’s largest outdoor screen with full surround sound in the spectacular neoclassical setting of Somerset House.

(..) As the sun sets, live DJs will create a soundtrack inspired by the upcoming film as cinema-goers can chill out in the courtyard with picnics and drinks. Selected screenings will also be specially introduced by the film's stars and directors.

There is no word on whether Henry will attend this particular screening, but we'll keep you posted. You can find additional information on what to expect on the Somerset House site. The release also mentioned the film's official running time as 117 minutes.. which means almost 2 full hours of sexy Solo time ;) 


Don't miss all the hotness from Rome, where Henry and his costars just finished promoting The Man from U.N.C.L.E. - And watch this space for the very latest, as we get closer to the film's August 14 release (U.S./UK).

    3. Staff Writer, that was a thoroughly unpleasant and stressful few minutes but I have managed to buy two tickets to the Film4's Summer Screen - People's Premiere of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Thank you for the luck you offered me.

      Are you going?

    1. Not sure that's the actual premiere. Sounds more like a special screening that the actors will likely intro. Will try and confirm and get back to you, but it may be too soon for them to say.

    2. My friend went to one of these screenings last year and there wasn't a red carpet. Somerset House started to do these in conjunction with Film4 about 2 years ago. I think it's an excuse to have a picnic at a open air screening. :-)

    3. A summer picnic at an open air screening of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. sounds delightful!

    2. Lorelli, we don't expect Henry to be at Cannes this year, he doesn't have a film there. But if he pops up, we'll be sure to let you know. We're expecting Stratton news soon, and he was spotted in London today so we're very excited about that! -- Thanks Rebecca x

    3. Translation:-
      Staff writer May 13, 2015 at 11:18 AM Lorelli, nous ne nous attendons pas Henry d'être à Cannes cette année, il n'a pas un film là-bas. Mais si il le fait, nous ne manquerons pas de vous en informer. Nous nous attendons à Stratton nouvelles bientôt, et il a été repéré à Londres aujourd'hui, donc nous sommes très excité à ce sujet!

      Usual Disclaimer: Apologies if my translation is wrong.
