If you’re into action movies where somebody kills a bunch of terrorist scum to avenge the death of a loved one, then I’ve got just the film for you! In American Assassin, Dylan O’Brien plays Mitch Rapp, a CIA black ops recruit hellbent on murdering the jerks that killed his girlfriend. Rapp learns the tricks of the trade from Stan Hurley, who is played by the legendary Michael Keaton.
The film is based on Vince Flynn’s 2010 novel of the same name, and now that we know the gist of what American Assassin is all about, let’s take a peak at its official teaser trailer.
Who knew that the snarky nerd from The Internship was such a badass!? I guess during the entirety of Stuart Twombly’s internship he was just googling how to get jacked and throw knifes with precision. It’s a damn shame we didn’t get to see this intensity and laser-focus on the Quidditch pitch.
All jokes about a mediocre comedy aside, American Assassin looks like it’s going to be entertaining as hell. I’d probably shell out $12.50 to watch Michael Keaton play an inanimate object, so getting to see him as a grizzled killing machine is well worth the price of admission.
