There’s been a fair amount of interest in American Assassin, partly due to the popularity of Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp novels, which many have suggested are long overdue a trip to the big screen. Now the first trailer has arrived, which you can take a look at below.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘AMERICAN ASSASSIN follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien), a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). The pair are then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.’
The movie will be in cinemas in September. Take a look at the trailer below. [Read more…]
