Slated for release this coming August 14th, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’s second official trailer was streamed at the San Diego Comic-Con International over the weekend. And it’s just marvelous!
I wonder if this will be some kind of test whether Henry Cavill truly deserves to be Daniel Craig’s predecessor as James Bond. As much as I’d loved for him to tackle that role eventually, I’ve a feeling that it’d be given to another actor once Craig retired from the role. Henry Cavill after all (I mean just after Man Of Steel) became the most iconic actor to play superman in this century thus far. Anyways, going back to the film – let’s just try to see all those explosions and a lot of Hugh Grant in this second official trailer. Enjoy!

Nine Months is the story of Samuel Faulkner (Hugh Grant,) a child psychologist who’s gotten her girlfriend (Julianne Moore) pregnant that turns his life into oblivion. Fearing the responsibility and the thought of raising a family, Sam gets advises from different people that led to one thing – he’s got to face the inevitable. Soon enough, he finally realized that it’s not just about him – but also his girlfriend, his child and the responsibility that comes with it. This was the first movie that I’ve seen from Hugh Grant and I was like less than ten then. Hugh Grant’s just extremely funny here and extremely charismatic as well. The story isn’t that much to chew on as it’s just clearly a flat out story but I guess the main selling point here is its actors. The actors esp Hugh Grant and Robin Williams are just hilarious. I guess, when the film makes you laugh – either the “good laugh” or the “ridiculous laugh” – there’s still a part of you that enjoys it. Nine Months was my childhood favorite, though not extremely good, watching it over and over – it takes me back to that place. If the movie ain’t worth a thing, I don’t think it would have that effect.
