The greater the spy, the bigger the lie...
Universal Pictures has let the cat out of the bag, debuting the first official trailer for the latest feature film From the twisted mind of Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman franchise, Kick-Ass), Argylle; a razor-witted, reality-bending, globe-encircling spy thriller.
Directed and produced by Vaughn, from a screenplay by Jason Fuchs (I Still See You), Argylle centres on Elly Conway (Bryce Dallas Howard – Jurassic World franchise), the reclusive author of a series of bestselling spy novels, whose definition of bliss is a quiet night at home spending quality time with her computer and her cat, Alfie. But when the storylines in Elly’s fictional books – which revolve around secret agent Argylle and his mission to unravel a global spy syndicate – begin to mirror the covert actions of a real-life spy organisation, those leisurely evenings at home quickly become a thing of the past.
Accompanied by Aiden (Oscar® winner Sam Rockwell), a cat-allergic spy, Elly (carrying Alfie in her backpack) races across the world to stay one step ahead of the killers as the line between Elly’s fictional world and her real one begins to blur.
The top-flight ensemble cast features Henry Cavill (“The Witcher”), John Cena (Fast X), Oscar®winner Ariana DeBose (West Side Story), Grammy winning pop superstar Dua Lipa (Barbie), Emmy winner and Oscar® nominee Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), Emmy winner and comedy icon Catherine O’Hara (“Schitt’s Creek”), Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service), and the legendary Samuel L. Jackson. Alfie is played by Chip, the real-life cat of supermodel Claudia Vaughn (née Schiffer).
The film is produced by Matthew Vaughn, Adam Bohling (Kingsman franchise), Jason Fuchs, and David Reid (Kingsman franchise). The executive producers are Adam Fishbach, ZygiKamasa, Carlos Peres and Claudia Vaughn. Apple Original Films presents, in association with MARV, a Cloudy production. Argylle is distributed by Universal Pictures.
Argylle will release in theaters on 2 Febuary, 2024 and until then, we’ll leave you with the aforementioned trailer.
