The first trailer for Clint Eastwood's new film "American Sniper" has been released. The movie is based on the autobiography of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. Bradley Cooper stars as Kyle in the film.
Cooper is also on as a producer and stars alongside Sienna Miller, Kyle Gallner and Luke Grimes. Before Eastwood signed on, Steven Spielberg was attached to direct. While Spielberg may certainly have more war film credits to his name, Eastwood has also explored the heavy subject matter as seen in "Letters from Iwo Jima" and "Flags of Our Fathers".
The trailer was a scene from the film that dealt with the moral dilemma and incredibly tough decisions that snipers have to face. It will be good to see Cooper expanding his range and tackling a very tough role like this. The trailer certainly captured my attention.
