The Man from U.N.C.L.E., director Guy Ritchie‘s adaptation of the ’60s spy series, released its longest trailer yet Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con, and its five minutes of footage confirms that basically no one really likes anyone else.

We see Henry Cavill‘s American agent Napoleon Solo fighting Armie Hammer‘s Soviet Illya Kuryakin, who also wrestles with Alicia Vikander‘s Gaby Teller.

It looks like Ritchie’s redux, about Cold War-era spooks forced to work side-by-side to stop international evil, doubles down on his trademark stylism and violence, cut by quips: lots of fists flying, tables flipping, bombs exploding and screens splitting.

Hugh Grant pops up as the apparent spymaster.

As Cavill says at the end, “How’s that for entertainment?”

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. hits theaters on Aug. 14.
