Straight Outta Compton
In our podcast, Binh Ngo and I made some predictions for this week’s openers. Binh’s pretty high on both films, but he’s giving the edge to “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” just because it’s opening in 3,638 theaters, about a thousand more than “Straight Outta Compton.” His numbers are $35M for “U.N.C.L.E.” and $30M for “Compton.” I have $15M and $25M for those films respectively, with “Compton” on top. It looks like I’m right with the positioning of “Compton,” but Binh’s closer to the actual gross.

Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer in "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."
I went into “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” expecting to be thrilled, entertained, and charmed by beautiful people chasing each other around the globe in a game of cat-and-mouse like the recent “Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation” -- except with bland male leads (Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer). At least, that’s what I got from the trailer.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Review: Guy Ritchie is Fun Again Warner Bros. Ever since the trailer dropped for this modern update of The Man From U.N.C.L.E., some skeptics have been asking, “Who is this movie for? Are the fans of this show even still alive?” Yes, many fans are still alive and well, but the answer to that question, regarding who this movie is for, is simple: it’s for people who like fun movies. That’s exactly what director Guy Ritchie‘s modern and old school update of the 1960’s television show is: fun.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Trailer: Bridging the Spy Movies of 2015 More trailers need Nina Simone, at least if they want to win me over. I don’t care if The Man From U.N.C.L.E. winds up being any good. I can just watch the latest (UK) trailer. If the movie does turn out to be a smash, then all the better. It will provide more proof that 2015 is the year of the (good) spy movie resurgence. Not only do we have a new James Bond installment this fall, but there’s also Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies.
