Warner Bros. Pictures has today announced release dates for two of its upcoming features. Guy Ritchie’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. will arrive January 16, 2015 with Glenn Ficarra and John Requa’s Focus following on February 27.
Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. centers on CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin. Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.
Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, Jared Harris, Hugh Grant and Luca Calvani star.
Focus, meanwhile, stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Rodrigo Santoro and involves a romance between a professional conman and someone just learning the criminal art and how their past relationship comes back into play when they meet up again years later.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E.‘s date puts it up against Paul McGuigan’s Frankenstein, Jeremy Garelick’s The Wedding Ringer, Michael Mann’s untitled cybercrime thriller and the animated Lionsgate family film Norm of the North.
