So I’m not usually one for military films, but something about this trailer for Clint Eastwood’s (who took over when Steven Spielberg left the project) American Sniper. The trailer is just cut so well, I’m hooked and want to see the results. Based on the life of U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle, dubbed the “Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. History,” Sniper stars a grizzled Bradley Cooper (who’s also producing).
While the film might be full of Eastwood’s usual super American attitude, this trailer for Sniper already sticks out thanks to a striking color scheme. And any trailer that’s willing to be silent amongst all the noise will always get my attention. American Sniper releases December 25th. You can check out the poster and some images in the gallery below.
