“Assassins aren’t born, they’re made.”
Buckle up, because your day is about to get a whole lot more intense. The teaser trailer for the upcoming movie American Assassin has arrived, and it’s a pure shot of adrenaline. Directed by Michael Cuesta and based on the novel of the same name by Vince Flynn, the high-powered action film follows new CIA black ops recruit Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien) who is hellbent on revenge and ready to fight after he lost everything. When he’s trained by Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton), the pair are enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a string of seemingly random attacks, taking them on a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to take down a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) and prevent a new World War in the Middle East.
American Assassin will hit theaters on September 15. Check out the teaser trailer below, and don’t even try to pretend you didn’t have to pick your jaw up off the floor after watching.Tags: American Assassin, CBS Films, Dylan O’Brien, Lionsgate, Michael Keaton, Sanaa Lathan, Shiva Negar, Taylor Kitsch
