Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, the stars of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie, participated in a Warner Bros. presentation in Las Vegas on April 21.
The event was CinemaCon, a national trade show for motion picture exhibitors. By sheer coincidence, it’s at Caesar’s Palace, where the last official U.N.C.L.E. production — the 1983 television film The Return of the Man From U.N.C.L.E. — was filmed.
Cavill and Hammer, who play Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin in the U.N.C.L.E. film, were part of a Warner Bros. panel. Both showed up in beards and light-colored suits and no ties.
During the presentation, Cavill and Hammer showed new footage from the U.N.C.L.E. movie, according to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. The trade publication didn’t provide details.
Earlier, Tom Cruise appeared at CinemaCon to plug Paramount’s Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation. According to THE WRAP, the actor-producer explained how the movie’s signature sent was performed where Cruise is hanging from the side of an aircraft.
Cruise also showed two clips from the film. For more details, CLICK HERE to read a story by The Associated Press.
The Mission: Impossible film will debut on July 31, with the U.N.C.L.E. movie coming out two weeks later.
What follows are Tweets From MTV and Warner Bros. of Cavill and Hammer.
UPDATE (11:25 p.m.): We embedded an MTV video where Cavill and Hammer were interviewed. An hour later, it stopped working. So we went ahead and stripped it out.
