CBS Films and Lionsgate have released the first full trailer for American Assassin. They also released an epic and bloody restricted/red band trailer. Check them both out down below.
The trailers are intense and truly give us a good look at the action in the film. The film is based on the late Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp novel series.
A CIA black ops recruit, Mitch Rapp, is devastated by the loss of his girlfriend to a terrorist attack. CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy assigns Cold War veteran Stan Hurley to train a grief-stricken but highly motivated Rapp how to thwart terrorist operations and hunt the perpetrators. Together they investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on military and civilian targets and discover a pattern in the violence that leads them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent to stop a mysterious operative intent on starting a world war in the Middle East.
American Assassin is directed by Michael Cuesta, with script by Stephen Schiff, Michael Finch, Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz. The film is produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Nick Wechsler.
The film stars Dylan O’Brien, Michael Keaton, Sanaa Lathan, Shiva Negar and Taylor Kitsch.
American Assassin is set to be released on September 15, 2017.
