Third U.N.C.L.E. movie trailer goes online

A third trailer for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie went online today at 1 p.m. New York time.

The new trailer appears to be a slightly tweaked version of the trailer that played in some U.S. theaters on May 29-31 with the Warner Bros. movie San Andreas.

The main change is a scene toward the end where Waverly (Hugh Grant) tells Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) that his new code name is “uncle” (or perhaps “U.N.C.L.E.”). In the May 29-31 trailer that scene was present, but there was no dialogue. Also, the scene was played in slow motion in the earlier trailer.

One other notable change: The May 29-31 trailer had a scene where there’s an explosion. Solo is annoyed. “My jacket was in there,” he says calmly. It’s not in the trailer that came out today.

Otherwise, the trailer that’s online includes Solo in peril (he’s in an electric chair) and a demonstration of how Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) is a huge, powerful man when he rips off a car’s trunk lid.

Sam Rolfe, developer of the original 1964-68 series and the creator of Kuryakin, envisioned him as large. That all changed when 5-foot-7 David McCallum was cast.

Anyway, you can take a look below. The trailer includes more snippets of the film’s main titles. The movie is scheduled to debut Aug. 14.

UPDATE: Composer Daniel Pemberton, on Twitter, says the new trailer contains some of his score.

  1. And still not a trace ( note ? ) of the famous TV Theme .
    Am beginning to think this film will go the ( abysmal) 1997 Avengers way ( with theme glued at the very end , just to please old timers )
