While the first trailer was heavy on the action and the odd coupledness of Illya Kuryakin and Napoleon Solo, this new trailer is all about the double entendres. Between the agents and the civilian. Between Napoleon and the villain. Between Illya and Napoleon.
“It’s in and out, no mess. And we both forget about it in the morning.” “Get to know each other more intimately.” “So sorry I can’t stay to finish you off myself.” “What are you doing down there?” “Trying not to get lost.” “All turned on now.” So. Many. Sexual. Innuendos. If you drink every time one happens, this three-minute trailer will kill you.
I’ve been pleasantly surprised by these trailers so far. It’s been a long time since one of these classic ‘60s spy-fi shows was made into a good movie. (The Avengers still hurts my soul on a deep, deep level.) But this keeps looking good! And like it’s got a handle on the source material in the inclusion of a civilian on the mission. But, I really hope they mean that the organization has a new code name as “UNCLE” and not that Napoleon has a codename “Uncle.” That... would be sad.
