2023, despite boasting of two of the arguably most cinematically phenomenal movies, has been anything but kind to cinema and Hollywood. The year’s summer has popularly come to be known as Hollywood’s hellish summer of strikes, as every anticipated movie got pushed back and every exciting filming brought to a stop. However, this slum was just the push Apple TV needed to give Henry Cavill‘s much-anticipated movie, Argylle, an official trailer.

Argylle is the brainchild of the acclaimed filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, who had said on numerous occasions that he would love to direct Henry Cavill. And when the opportunity presented itself, the director went all out as he roped in global pop icon Dua Lipa for the role. While Vaughn has secured his stars, he has yet to secure a release date for the movie or its trailer. However, the trailer will be dropping sometime soon, according to various trusted scoops.
