Late last night Warner Bros. unveiled the very first image for their adaptation of the popular 1960’s series The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Steven Soderbergh was initially attached to helm the film for WB before Guy Ritchie came on, after which Tom Cruise came onboard to star alongside Armie Hammer (The Social Network) before leaving to focus on Mission: Impossible 5. Man of Steel star Henry Cavill subsequently came on to fill the vacant role.

This finished iteration of the film takes place in the early 60s at the height of the Cold War, as Cavill’s CIA agent Napoleon Solo is forced to team up with Hammer’s KGB agent Illya Kuryakin to stop a mysterious criminal organization.

The film also stars Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, and Jared Harris, with Ritchie having penned the screenplay alongside his Sherlock Holmes collaborator Lionel Wigram.  The Man from U.N.C.L.E. opens in theaters August 14, 2015.
