Today a new trailer was released for AMERICAN SNIPER. Directed by Clint Eastwood comes the story of the most lethal sniper in U.S. history. Bradley Cooper leads as U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle who is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to “leave no one behind.” But upon returning to his wife, Taya Renae Kyle (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind. The film is based on the book of the same name by Chris Kyle, with Scott McEwan and Jim DeFelice. The autobiography was a bestseller, and spent 18 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, 13 of those at number one spot.
Check out this intense and emotionally charged new trailer for AMERICAN SNIPER that shows there is so much more to this hero than what is seen on the battlefield. This looks to be one of the most realist and raw stories that we have seen yet, rather than focusing only on his time in battle it also seems to show the effect the war has on not just Chris Kyle but on his family as well. AMERICAN SNIPER opens in theatres everywhere on December 25, 2014.
