U.N.C.L.E. out of running for MTV award

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie is now out of the running for the MTV Fandom of the Year awards.

The 2015 film (nominated in the movie category) didn’t make it past the second round of fan voting. MTV today released the list of nominees that made it to the third round, where voting is taking place on Twitter.

By any reasonable standard, U.N.C.L.E. was a surprise just to get nominated. Its box office was a fraction of the likes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Captain America: Civil War, which are among the titles still in contention.

What’s more, the movie was based on a television series more than a half-century old that never was the success in syndication of contemporary series such as the original Star Trek or Mission: Impossible.

For U.N.C.L.E. to make it into the second round amounts to the film playing with the house’s money.

So U.N.C.L.E. fans who participated in the voting should feel good about the result.

For now, U.N.C.L.E. faces an uncertain future. There’s no sequel planned for the Henry Cavill-Armie Hammer movie. Whether U.N.C.L.E. can return in some other form remains to be seen.

But, for a few days, Solo and Kuryakin were out in pop culture again.
