This is a special Date Night edition of Popcorn & Pics where we recommend the perfect, get out of the house, couples night out film for Mom and Dad. The modern day update of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. provides action, two charismatic leading men, beautiful women in gorgeous vintage fashions and all of the thrills of a James Bond film with a hip throwback vibe. Based on the 1964 series, the film directed by Guy Ritchie stars Henry Cavill (the new Superman) and Armie Hammer in a 1960’s set plot. CIA agent Napoleon Solo and KGB operative Kllya Kuryakin must join forces against a mysterious criminal organization.
Behind the Scenes: Turing a beloved vintage TV series into a new movie isn’t an impossible mission. You just need two irresistible leads like Hammer and Cavill. Six foot five Hammer (“Social Network”) says that he wouldn’t make a good spy in real life. “I’m too tall. It makes it hard to blend in. Plus, I find it hard to keep a secret.”
Fun Fact: A sequel is already in the works.
