This periodic drama film introduces the audience to the world in which Black people were enslaved in - inhumanly treated at the peril of the white race.

Actor Armie Hammer Is Developing A New Project About Mexican Cartel Leader Edgar Valdez-villarreal.
The Lone Ranger star has been trying to obtain the rights to Villarreal's life story since 2012, when the 29-year-old actor was arrested in Texas after officers found him with three medicinal marijuana cookies and a brownie at a border checkpoint.
His case was subsequently dismissed, but he established a relationship with the drug lord's attorney, Kent Schaffer, after Hammer's journalist wife, Elizabeth Chambers-Hammer, hired him to help her husband.
"Elizabeth contacted me when Armie was still in jail over a little marijuana charge and she talked to me for the first 20 minutes about getting life rights to Edgar's story," the lawyer tells Buzzfeed.com, "and then she said, 'By the way, my husband is in jail, can you get him out'."

Adopting a deliciously groovy vibe, Guy Ritchie turns the iconic 1960s TV spy series into a flashy action-comedy. There's absolutely nothing to this frothy romp, but it's packed with hilarious characters and lively action scenes that continually surprise the audience with inventive twists on the genre. And it just might turn the suave, fast-talking Henry Cavill and the brooding, engaging Armie Hammer into A-list stars in the process.
It opens in 1963 East Berlin, where ex-con CIA operative Napoleon Solo (Cavill) is trying to help sexy mechanic Gaby (Alicia Vikander) escape to the West, chased by his nemesis, KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Hammer). Gaby's father is a nuclear scientist on the verge of selling his secrets to a rogue Italian billionaire couple (Elizabeth Debicki and Luca Calvani) so, even though the Cold War is raging, the CIA and KGB decide to cooperate on the mission. This means that rivals Solo and Illya must work together as they travel to Rome with Gaby, making contact with British agent Waverly (Hugh Grant) and Gaby's creepy uncle (Sylvester Goth). And of course, there are unexpected wrinkles along the way.
As always, Ritchie cleverly subverts each set-piece, letting chase scenes unfold in carefully staged but enjoyably inventive ways, often putting the real action in the background while the characters act as if they're above all this nastiness. As popcorn entertainment, this is first-rate, with a cast that's more than up to the challenge. Cavill is particularly smooth, a Bond-style spy who seems unable to resist seducing every pretty woman he meets. Hammer's role is pricklier, since Illya never quite relaxes, although his petulance makes him just as likeable. Their interplay is snappy and often very funny but, unlike Ritchie's similarly toned Sherlock Holmes movies, this strains to avoid being a bromance. Solo and Illya continue to spy on each other right to the end, maintaining their Cold War distance even as they team up to save the world.

Acclaimed director Guy Ritchie has admitted he ''loved'' 'Guardians of the Galaxy', but said he's unsure if he'd be willing to tackle a similar movie.
Guy Ritchie ''loved'' 'Guardians of the Galaxy'.
The 46-year-old director - who's helmed 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.', starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer - has revealed himself to be a major fan of the Marvel movie, but is unsure whether he'd want to commit to a similarly adventurous project.
Asked if he was interested to be involved in a Marvel-style cinematic franchise, Guy said: ''I'm not sure if I have a clear answer for that one. I have a very collaborative relationship with Warner Bros. where they throw different ideas at me, and it takes nearly two years to make a movie, so you have to be relatively judicious about what projects you're going to choose.

Armie Hammer Made Sure He Kept One Of His Character's Signature Caps When He Wrapped The Man From U.n.c.l.e. By Simply Walking Off Set Fully Dressed As Ilya Kuryakin.
The actor wasn't allowed to leave the set with anything during filming, but insists security staff dropped their guard on his last day.
He explains, "I managed to basically steal one when we finished the movie by just walking off set fully dressed on the last day, just getting into a car and driving away."
But now he's not so sure the cap 'steal' was such a good idea, because he has nowhere and no occasion to wear it in the U.S.
