WHO IS “ARGYLLE”? GET TO KNOW THE CHARACTERS IN DIRECTOR MATTHEW VAUGHN’S LATEST ACTION-PACKED SPY MOVIE (Part 1)

Whether you’re more interested in suave secret agents like Argylle, or superstar but shy best-selling authors like Elly Conway, there’s a character that’s sure to be your favorite in “Argylle,” the new razor-witted, reality-bending spy thriller from the twisted mind of filmmaker Matthew Vaughn (“Kingsman,” “Kick-Ass”). 

In “Agrylle,” Bryce Dallas Howard (“Jurassic World” franchise) is Elly Conway, the reclusive author of a series of best-selling espionage novels, whose idea of bliss is a night at home with her computer and her cat, Alfie. But when the plots of Elly’s fictional books – which center on secret agent Argylle and his mission to unravel a global spy syndicate – begin to mirror the covert actions of a real-life spy organization, quiet evenings at home become a thing of the past. Accompanied by Aidan, a cat-allergic spy played by Oscar® winner Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Elly (carrying Alfie in her backpack) races across the world to stay one step ahead of the killers as the line between Elly’s fictional world and her real one begins to blur.

Ahead of the film’s opening on January 31, get to know Elly, Aidan and the rest of the characters of “Argylle.” Take it from John Cena, who plays one of the book characters in the film. “I don’t think audiences are only looking for bigger and brasher,” Cena says. “I think they also need purpose, narrative and characters to invest in, and ‘Argylle’ has this stuff in spades.”

REAL WORLD (IN THE MOVIE)

Elly Conway (Bryce Dallas Howard)

Novelist by day, cat mom by night, Elly Conway lives a quiet life with an unhealthy obsession with her written characters. Elly is a recluse who lives in a world of her own making, until an agent named Aidan approaches her on a train, informs her that she is the target of a nefarious spy organization known as The Division, and Elly is thrust into a dangerous, glamorous, global race against the clock to unlock a mystery trapped inside her own head and save her own life. “As a 40-year-old woman, it’s not every day you get a part like this sent your way,” says Howard. “It feels like a small miracle, so empowering and satisfying and fun. It is the best script I have ever read and the best part I have ever gotten to play.”

Aidan (Sam Rockwell)

In every way that Elly Conway’s imaginary secret agent, Argylle (played by Henry Cavill), is smooth and confident, real-life secret agent Aidan is a bit rough around the edges. “Elly and Aidan meet on a train, where he looks like an unlikely passenger to be holding a first-class ticket,” says Vaughn. “You wouldn’t immediately peg Sam Rockwell as a spy, and that’s precisely the essence of a spy. In films like ‘Kingsman’ or ‘James Bond,’ spies are typically impeccably dressed, but in our movie, Sam’s character deliberately goes against that norm. He is the kind of spy who is meant to blend in seamlessly by not standing out.”

Opening in cinemas January 31, “Argylle,” an Apple Original Films presentation, in association with MARV, a Cloudy production, is distributed by Universal Pictures. #ArgylleMoviePH
