Let’s take a step back in time to when the cold war was at its height and spies could be found in just about every part of the world. However, CIA man Napoleon Solo and the KGB agent Illya Kuryakin have to join forces in order to take a dangerous international organisation. Under the leadership of Alexander Waverly, the United Network Command for Law Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.) must stop this organisation from changing the world, as we know it. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is directed by Guy Ritchie and it stars Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, Jared Harris and Hugh Grant. Some people might remember the TV series of same name, it will be great to compare the two.
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 Man from U.N.C.L.E. movie will be opening on Friday, August 14th can we really wait that long?

There are some great shows on the way this year and ITV have a real smooth looking drama called Arthur & George! It’s based on the life of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, so you will know that it’s set in the Victorian era, which was dark for some and enlightened for the elite. The series stars Martin Clunes as the great Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Following the death of his wife, Louisa, Conan Doyle has become a “bore and a sulk” by his own admission. All around him do their best to bolster Arthur from his grief and mourning including his beloved ‘Mam’ who implores him to “sink his teeth into something. If not a book then some new pursuit.”
There is not to wait before this show hits the small screen, Arthur & George will be on ITV next month.

Basically, what this show is based on is the return of the prodigal son to the place where he grew up and his family are well respected with the community. There are dark twists and turns as old secrets begin to come out. Bloodline is from the creators of Damages, Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler, it will be starring Kyle Chandler, Ben Mendelsohn, Linda Cardellini, Norbert Leo Butz, Jacinda Barrett, Jamie McShane, Enrique Murciano, with Sam Shepard, and Sissy Spacek.
