UPDATE (7/1) 


New York critics are loving Henry as Solo! -- Read their reactions at the bottom of the post.. 



Okay so it's not exactly a one-on-one with Solo, but Hastings just launched a sweet contest. If you live in the U.S., you have the chance to win a hometown screening of The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Good luck, everyone -- ENTER NOW.

For those of you living in the UK, a reminder that you can enter to win tickets to the People's premiere of U.N.C.L.E.

And German fans, this next bit is for you. Cinema magazine's latest issue, features an article on the film. If you end up getting it, we'd love it if you'd share the scans so we can post them for all of Henry's fans to see (thank you in advance).


Finally, the agency that represents Henry in the UK couldn't have put it better. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is an entertaining ride, from beginning to end.


And the critics agree! -- It looks like some New York press also got a chance to screen the film..


UPDATE: There was a screening, and the film critics are loving Henry's performance (told you so!)



Only six weeks to go!

Lucky LA: Press Watching 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' Tonight



We're not gonna to say we're not sitting here about to cry, after hearing that a screening of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is going on in LA and we're not there (*weeping*). But we loooove what Steve had to say about why the press gets to watch it this early... Show them what you've got, Solo!


All Henry, All The Time: The Awesomeness Getting Closer!


We're not gonna lie.. we might have had a yippee! moment, when Vanessa shared that beautiful picture from her Houston theater with us. This is the first time we see the new The Man from U.N.C.L.E. poster in lights, and right next to Supes!   

As we wait for August 14 to get here, Comic-Con is a lot closer.. NEXT WEEK SUPERMAN!

Over the weekend we got confirmation, that the Warner Brothers panel is set for 10:30 am-12:00 pm on Saturday, July 11. And Steve couldn't have said it better..



If you're headed to San Diego, this will be the focus of your adventure..


And this will be us when we're in that line..


But the payoff is waaaaay worth it! -- Look for updates, starting Wednesday, July 8.

Being Superman Comes In Handy During U.N.C.L.E. Filming


"Superman with an axe about to build our log cabin"

Here we thought Henry's lumberjack look was just for show.. 

After holding out on us with Solo photos for months, today The Man from U.N.C.L.E. director Guy Ritchie posted some fun pics of Henry building a cabin for him.. and maybe a lake.   


"And after 2 days this is what he created. Thanks old boy."


"Then he dug the lake out"

The pics were taken (along with these ones) during The Man from U.N.C.L.E. pre-production/filming in the UK in the summer of 2013. We can see why Henry loves working with Ritchie... he has his same sense of humor! (that you will see him brilliantly put to use as Solo).

We're impressed Mr. Cavill.

U.N.C.L.E. Promo: Solo Chats Up Victoria In New Still, More!



A stylish Solo is making an appearance at the Festival of Speed at Goodwood (UK) this weekend. 


As you can see in the pictures, which include a new behind the scenes still with Henry -- the circuit served as a set for The Man from U.N.C.L.E. back in the fall of 2013. Some of the cars used in the film are also on display. In fact the two cars in that photo, take center stage in a really cool action scene in U.N.C.L.E.'s first trailer.



As for those vintage Vespas, check out Henry rehearsing on one of them, while filming in Rome. Goodwood was also the place where Henry was photographed for a new interview, and this weekend fans in the UK had a chance to pick up a free copy of Goodwood magazine from Picturehouse Cinemas.


You don't want to miss the hot pics from that shoot and the fun interview with Henry. Fans in the UK also have a chance to win tickets to the People's Premiere of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. at Somerset House on August 7. Thank you to Rebecca, who saw the ad for the contest on TV there and let us know about it. We're so excited to see promotion for the film now popping up all over the place, including this piece in Italy (at about 31 minutes into the show).



And you are as excited as we are! -- Look for the latest updates as they come in.

Steph_Lincoln_: "Oh Hey, Superman! #HenryCavill #Hot #London" (Steph met him last night, called him "nice").

@TheLucas90 via @RawainZubaid 

"Of all the people, I bump into Henry Cavill/Superman in Richmond! #ManofSteel"

Two weeks from today, thousands of fans will be cheering for Supes in a crowded Hall H and Henry is ready! -- Out with the sexiest beard (we'll miss yooooou), in with his "by far.. hottest-superHERO-evah" clean-shaven look..



Corrado La Porta has met Henry before, and ran into him again! (lucky). This is what he had to say:

"And I met superman again, finally without the beard, I can say that he is not just Superman, he is amazing and a lovely person, unfortunately there are not many people like him ‪#‎HenryCavill‬ ‪#‎MANOFSTEEL‬"



And while the fanboys are taking it all in stride, girls.. well.. it's a never-ending debate ;)




And you know the passion is real when the big man is invoked..


Why didn't we think of THIS?.. sooo would have won THAT bet..






We're just always happy to see you Man from U.N.C.L.E., Superman, Henry Cavill...

TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY!!!

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. promo has finally arrived, and all of a sudden we're surrounded by Solo everywhere we look, and we are loving every second of it!

It's death by secret agent, and we don't mind it one. single. bit. -- Check out the new "Solo" poster of Henry, shared by Warner Bros. -- And just to finish us off, they added a description of his "assets." 


Monday blues never looked SO good!

And this..

UPDATE: Here are the rest of the individual character posters..



Supes Headed To Comic-Con In Real Life And In 'Lego' Form



It was one of our favorite pictures out of Comic-Con 2013 (don't miss our exclusives), Henry holding the iconic first sighting of Superman in Action Comics #1. Today we learned the introductory comic book cover is once again headed to San Diego, this time in Lego form!


It's not gonna be easy to get our hands on that baby, but we're sure gonna try! -- Only for Supes ;)


Time Warner's CEO got a crowd of executives all riled up in Atlanta over the weekend, when he proudly spoke about WB's big plans for Superman, and the rest of the DC Universe on film:

Variety

Bewkes talked up plans for Warner Bros. to release as many as 10 DC Comics-related movies in the next few years. He said there was “no more anticipated” movie for 2016 than the “Batman V. Superman” superhero pairing. He then cued a teaser for the pic that previously was seen in April at CinemaCon and features a glimpse of Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight.

You've got this, Supes.

And yeh..

Comic-Con begins TWO WEEKS from Wednesday, and we'll be there to bring you all the Batman v Superman excitement and everything Henry!

Wigram On Henry: "It Made Sense For Him Creatively To Do It"

Image: Warner Bros.

Parts of the group set interviews that several sites took part in while Henry filmed The Man from U.N.C.L.E. are still coming in.
Collider has shared a bit more of what producer Lionel Wigram had to say about the film and working with Henry, and it only gets us more excited for August 14!

I have a question about that, nowadays studios have actors sign multi-picture deals in the case of a franchise. Was it tougher to get Henry because he’s already signed for Man of Steel and multiple sequels?

WIGRAM: No, it wasn’t. Henry’s part of the Warners family, I think he’d say that, and I think they were very keen to have him in the movie. I think the fact of him being in Man of Steel, their investment of him, his investment with Warner Brothers, actually made it easier. It’s a funny thing, this business, it all seems Machiavellian and full of machinations, but in the end it’s all just a bunch of people. I’ve been a producer, a studio executive, been on the outside, we’re all just trying to figure it out together. In the end you’re just kind of, ‘Look guys, I know you’re shooting Superman at this point, Man of Steel 2, can we fit you in? Can we work together? Sure, let’s figure this out,’ and you do. I’m friendly with Chuck Roven, everybody calls each-other, says, ‘Hey, come on, let’s help each-other’, that’s how it works. And in the end we’re all motivated by the same stuff, is the material different enough, interesting enough? I know Henry saw Solo as something completely different to everything else he’s ever done. It couldn’t be more different to Man of Steel; different tone, much more humour. It made sense for him creatively to do it. That’s why he did it. It made sense creatively to have him because he’s a wonderful actor who looks great and I think he’s a future movie star. It’s that simple.
Image: Warner Bros.

Wigram also confirms what we can already tell by the trailers: The Man from U.N.C.L.E. will be a fun ride!

How important is humor in the movie?
WIGRAM: Vital. This is pure entertainment. This is a piece of entertainment. We’re not trying to say anything important about the meaning of life, or politics, anything like that. We’re trying to have fun without insulting anybody’s intelligence, kind of like with Sherlock. Hopefully the audience will be amused, they’ll laugh, they’ll smile, they’ll have a good time. It’s not a comedy. It’s an adventure.


Read the rest of the interview (it's packed with awesome details) at Collider. You can find links to the other set interviews from that day in our previous post. Over the weekend we also learned that Henry will be in Cosmopolitan magazine promoting the film, and Warner Bros. UK flagged us about SFX magazine's cover story on everything U.N.C.L.E.



And that's not all! --- THR says new U.N.C.L.E. footage featuring Henry was just shown at CineEurope. You may remember they also showed a clip there last year (lucky Spain).

Guy Ritchie sent a swift hello to introduce an extended clip of Henry Cavill and Alicia Vikander in The Man from U.N.C.L.E., described as a "fun, entertaining spy caper," by Warner's evp of international distribution and exhibition strategy, Thomas Molter.

There will be so many great moments to bring you in the coming months, and we can't wait.

Happy Monday, everyone!

Henry In September Issue Of Cosmo, Bond Buzz Keeps Growing


Hello handsome!

It's been a working weekend for Henry, as we found out when Cosmopolitan's Laura Brounstein tweeted fans asking for questions. She was about to interview him over the phone, for a piece that she later confirmed will be in the magazine's September issue (woohoo!). Brounstein added that the interview will be online in August though, so keep you posted. 
Of course we had to show our support :)
As the hype keeps building ahead of the August 14 release of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., so does the online buzz for Henry to become the next 007.



Henry and the rest of the Bond contenders have been in the headlines all week, thanks to bookies switching up the odds, by adding Damian Lewis to the list. But if you ask the web, it's really all about Henry!

Indiewire has been running a poll, asking people who they would like to see replace Daniel Craig, and Henry is the man! (not that we're surprised). He pretty much started tied with odds-fave Idris Elba, and then took the lead and never looked back. Henry now has more than 50% of the popular vote -- We say let's take this all the way! -- KEEP VOTING --  You know Solo is the only Bond you want ;) (and that social media boost can only help). Thanks everyone.

Feel Like Kissing A Spy? - New The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Poster

A photo posted by The Man From Uncle (@themanfromuncle) on

Just in time to celebrate National Kissing Day in the UK, Warner Brothers has released a new The Man from U.N.C.L.E. poster and Solo is looking as dashing as always (and very kissable, we might add). BAFTA was the first one to flag us about the holiday, when they posted that irresistible flashback pouty pic of Henry blowing a kiss to the camera.. we dare you to try and look away.


Since we're not in England to "properly" celebrate National Kissing Day, how about we bring some of Henry's best kisses to you?

Let's start with the very passionate but oh, so sweet..


These kisses will leave you breathless..



NSFW alert.. 'nuff said.


With Charles you get much more than just a kiss..



We could get used to this holiday.. blowing our kisses your way, UK. Have a great weekend everyone.

Three Weeks From Saturday: 'Batman v Superman' At SDCC!



It's going DOWN in San Diego!

Not that we hadn't been counting down since like, July of last year.. but today Lex Luthor himself confirmed the news to Collider. Batman v Superman will be at Comic-Con 2015. WATCH.




“I’ll be there…I think I’m there for the hour I’m on the stage.” 


AN HOUR??!! Oh. My. Supes.


Even if it's two minutes of Henry on the stage like last year, it will SO be worth it. Jesse also praised the work of screenwriter Chris Terrio while talking to MTV, and described what Lex is all about. WATCH.



UPDATE: Get this, according to Variety the WB presentation will likely be more that just about Batman v Superman!

In addition to the new “Star Wars” and final “Hunger Games,” fans could see the rumored coming-out party for Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s Justice League, which features Batman, Superman, the Flash and Aquaman, among other surprises.

Look for complete coverage from Comic-Con starting July 8th!
