Apple has given us a first look at blockbuster spy movie Argylle as part of its Apple March event.

The tech giant previewed its plans for the year ahead in new products, and, as part of the presentation, it gave us a sneak peek at four of its forthcoming original movies. 

Argylle is adapted from author Ellie Conway's as-yet unpublished novel and boasts a very starry cast with Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O'Hara, John Cena, Samuel L. Jackson, Ariana DeBose, Rob Delaney all starring, as well as singer Dua Lipa in her acting debut. 

Matthew Vaughn, creator of Kingsman and director of Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class directs, marking his debut working away from cinema. 

Argylle follows a world-class spy who finds himself suffering from amnesia. Before he can recover his memory, he is tricked into believing he is a best-selling spy novelist.

Then, when his memories and lethal skills do return, he swears revenge against the Division, the shadowy organization he used to work for. 

You can get a first look at Argylle as well as the rest of Apple's 2022 movie slate at the start of the presentation that we've embedded below for you:

It'll track the journey of Efron's Donohue, who, after a wager, leaves New York in 1967 to bring beer to his childhood buddies in the Army while they are fighting in Vietnam.
