‘American Sniper’ Trailer: War is Hell

American Sniper / Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper plays Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the deadliest sniper in American history, for director Clint Eastwood. The trailer you’re about to watch is a master class in tension and marketing so pay close attention.

Holy shit, right? Interspersing glimpses of Kyles life at home while forcing him to make such a decision is gut wrenching and basically guarantees this a place on my must see list. It’s hard to tell but it looks like a return to form for Clint Eastwood, and like Bradley Cooper might get another nomination at the Oscars (at least).

American Sniper opens limited Christmas Day, and wide release in January.
