Guy Ritchie's latest film takes a bold stance against ungentlemanly warfare. Lionsgate released the initial poster for "The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare," Ritchie's World War II-era action-thriller that reunites him with Henry Cavill, his star from "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." The poster, displayed below, coincides with Cavill's announcement that the trailer, showcasing the first glimpses of Ritchie's star-studded follow-up to "The Covenant" and his unrelated Netflix TV series "The Gentlemen," will be available online on Tuesday, January 30.

"Approaching the end of my Argylle press tour, there's still more excitement in store," Cavill shared on Instagram. "Tomorrow will unveil the trailer for Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare! Stay tuned for more bearded and twirly wirly moustachioed antics." View the poster and Cavill's post with his bearded look below.

According to the logline, "Ungentlemanly Warfare" draws inspiration from the true account of "UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill's and Ian Fleming's secret WWII combat organization. The covert squad, employing unconventional and 'ungentlemanly' fighting methods against the Nazis, played a pivotal role in altering the course of the war and laying the foundation for the modern Black Ops unit."

Directed by Ritchie and produced by Oscar-nominated Jerry Bruckheimer (known for Top Gun: Maverick and Pirates of the Caribbean), "The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare" is adapted from Damien Lewis' 2014 book, "Churchill's Secret Warriors: The Explosive True Story of the Special Forces Desperadoes of WWII." The ensemble cast includes Cavill (Argylle), Eiza Gonzaléz (Godzilla vs. Kong), Alan Ritchson (Reacher), Henry Golding (The Gentlemen), Henrique Zaga (The New Mutants), Cary Elwes (Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning), Alex Pettyfer (Magic Mike), Hero Fiennes Tiffin (The Woman King), Babs Olusanmokun (Star Trek: Strange New Worlds), and Til Schweiger (Inglorious Basterds).

 

When revealing the project, Ritchie, referring to the then-untitled adaptation of Lewis' book, described "Ungentlemanly Warfare" as "an action-packed movie that is both intellectually stimulating and physically exhilarating." Ritchie serves as the director, working from a script co-written with Arash Amel (known for Hidden Strike and the upcoming Starman remake), Paul Tamasy (The Fighter, Patriots Day), and Eric Johnson (The Finest Hours, The Outpost).

"The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare" is set to hit theaters exclusively on April 19.
