The first trailer for Guy Ritchie’s WWII drama starring Henry Cavill has been released by Lionsgate.
The Ministry of Anti-Gentleman War is based on recently declassified British War Office files that documented a secret group of military officials formed by Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

Ultimately, their bold approach changed the course of the war and laid the foundations for the British SAS and modern Black Ops warfare.
Ian Fleming, the author of the James Bond novels, was also a member of the group.
The project reunites Ritchie and Cavill, who previously teamed up for 2015. UNCLE’S MAN.
