American Sniper Film Trailer
The first trailer has dropped online for Clint Eastwood’s new war flick, American Sniper. The film stars Bradley Cooper as the most lethal sniper in US history.
Cooper stars as Navy SEAL Chris Kyle – a man who has a reputation on both sides of the war as being pretty good at his job. The film will deal with both side’s of Kyle’s life as he struggles to deal with civilian life after four tours of Iraq.
The trailer is excellent and perfectly surmises the contradictory worlds of Kyle’s home-life and his work in the field. The tense tone is instantly set with the dilemma of all war dilemmas spliced together with images from home.
While there is always the danger American Sniper will be a little Team America, the cast is more than adequate with Sienna Miller, Jake McDorman and Luke Grimes on board. And with Eastwood at the helm it’s almost certain to be in the shake up for Oscar season. A release date of the 16th January implies Warner Bros. hope as much anyway.
