With Guy Ritchie’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E. making its way into theaters nationwide on August 14th, I got the chance to sit down with the cast of the film for a round of “Would You Rather.” The movie takes place during the height of the Cold War. Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer step in as Napoleon Solo and Ilya Kuryakin. Solo is with the CIA and Kuryakin is a KGB agent, but they’re forced to put their differences aside when tasked with stopping a mysterious international criminal organization that’s out to rattle the world using nuclear weaponry.
During the film’s London press day, Cavill, Hammer, Alicia Vikander and Elizabeth Debicki played a little “Would You Rather.” Find out if they’d rather work with CG creatures or real animals, if they’d rather play superheroes or villains, what happens when you lose a top secret script and so much more in the video interview below.
Here are the previous editions of “Would You Rather:”
- Fantastic Four – Miles Teller, Jamie Bell, Kate Mara and Michael B. Jordan

And here’s the official synopsis for The Man from U.N.C.L.E.:
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.
