After the premiere of the excellent poster (previewed above) earlier this week, IMDb (via Latino Review) now has a brand new trailer for Anton Corbijn’s The American. The film stars George Clooney, Bruce Altman, Thekla Reuten, Paolo Bonacelli and Violante Placido. Check out the short trailer below.
Plot: Alone among assassins, Jack is a master craftsman. When a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for this American abroad, he vows to his contact Larry that his next assignment will be his last. Jack reports to the Italian countryside, where he holes up in a small town and relishes being away from death for a spell. The assignment, as specified by a Belgian woman, Mathilde, is in the offing as a weapon is constructed. Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto and pursues romance with local woman Clara. But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.
I really wish more mature, adult-focused films like this get produced. This looks brilliant and easily one of my most-anticipated films of the year after Corbijn’s Control.
The American hits theaters Sept. 1st via Focus Features.

When White confronts this illness her life, in some ways, […]
