First trailer drops for Guy Ritchie’s incredibly violent Nazi film starring Henry Cavill

First trailer drops for Guy Ritchie’s incredibly violent Nazi film starring Henry Cavill

The film's set for release in the coming months

The trailer for The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare is finally here.

The highly anticipated Guy Ritchie film boasts an all-star cast, including Henry Cavill, Alex Pettyfer, Reacher star Alan Ritchson and Henry Golding.

And if the huge cast wasn't enough to lure you in, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare comes from the producer of Top Gun: Maverick and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Check out the trailer here:

Based on a true story, the film's short but sweet synopsis reads: "The British military recruits a small group of highly-skilled soldiers to strike against Nazi forces behind enemy lines during World War II."

The film takes it cues from Damien Lewis' book 'The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: How Churchill’s Secret Warriors Set Europe Ablaze and Gave Birth to Modern Black Ops' - and no, we don't mean the guy from Homeland.

Ritchie and Cavill have previously worked together on 2015's The Man from U.N.C.L.E, which boasts an admirable 73 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

In the wake of the trailer dropping, movie fans have expressed their excitement for The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare's April release.

Henry Cavill plays Gus March-Phillips in the film.

"I can't wait to watch it, I'm sure it's amazing," penned one person.

"Trailer is too good," wrote another, while a third went on: "I’m interested. Guy Ritchie doesn’t miss."

The film wrapped in April 2023, sparking frontman Cavill to pen a lengthy post to social media.

Sharing a look behind-the-scenes of the movie, the Argylle star wrote: "That's a wrap! My days on Ungentlemanly Warfare are over.

"Tis a sad day. I'm going to echo the sentiments of my co-stars and sing the praises of our intrepid crew. It's rare to come across a team so driven, dedicated and committed to the storytelling."

Going on to gush about Ritchie, Cavill went on: "That drive and dedication is only intensified by having a leader such as Guy Ritchie. His ability to weave story and create character might be second to none, and he wields it like it were magic."

Alan Ritchson, Eiza González and Henry Golding also star.

Co-star Alex Pettyfer replied to the post: "Love you brother, thank you for the kind words. One of the greatest honors following your lead."

Elsewhere, Alan Ritchson raved about the former Superman star's work ethic.

"Henry was always first in and last out, never once complained - even in the midst of tough conditions (both on and off the set at times)," Ritchson said.

"He showed up ready to work every single day and never griped about waiting around if he was asked to," the Fast X favorite continued.

The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare hits cinemas April 19.
