The Trailer for Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper, Starring Bradley Cooper

ON

Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted, via iTunes Movie Trailers, the first trailer for director Clint Eastwood’s upcoming military drama, American Sniper, starring Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller. Check it out in the player below!

Cooper plays Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. But there was much more to him than his skill as a sharpshooter.

U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world.

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 SEAL creed to “leave no man behind.” But upon returning to his wife, Taya Renae Kyle (Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.

American Sniper lands in theaters in a limited release December 25, expanding January 16, 2015.
