The Man From UNCLE: The 'special agents aren't having a special day' in second trailer

Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer have "no choice but to work together" in this slick and sexy second trailer for The Man From UNCLE. The spy thriller, which is an adaptation of the hit 1960s TV series, stars Henry as CIA agent Napoleon Solo alongside Armie, who plays KGB agent Illya Kuryakin.

Set during the Cold War, America and Russia must team up to fight a new, international, and unidentified enemy, who is working with the atom bomb.

Directed by British star Guy Ritchie, The Man From UNCLE also stars Hugh Grant, who works with his British accent to great effect as Mr Waverly, the head of the British arm of UNCLE - or the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement.

This second trailer is full of action, laughs, and romance.

Swedish actress Alicia Vikander plays the daughter of the German scientist who is key to infiltrating the mysterious organisation, while The Great Gatsby star Elizabeth Debecki takes on the femme fatale of the film - but we think there may be more to her than meets the eye.

Henry, 31, who will also be putting his Superman cape back on later this year for Batman vs. Superman opened up to People magazine about his time shooting the film with Armie and Hugh. "They're both wonderful people and a pleasure to work with," the actor said.

"Any funny stories I'm going to keep to myself, though. No telling tales out of school."

Armie, 28, was just as tight-lipped about his time on set. He did joke about how he had prepared for his role as a Soviet Spy, though, including mastering a Russian accent.

"I moved to the Soviet Union for six years," he deadpanned. "It was time travel as well as location. The jet lag is a killer."

The Man From UNCLE is out in the UK on 14 August
