{The American}


The trailer for The American looks intriguing. I like that it hardly utilizes Clooney as the main draw, instead focusing on story, character and the complexities surrounding him. Director Anton Corbijn, an acclaimed music video director of videos (from Depeche Mode, Joy Division, Echo & The Bunnymen, Nirvana, Nick Cave and more) looks to be creating a kind of foreign film in its tone and look.

The story focuses on a loner assassin who is a master of his craft. But when a job in Sweden goes awry, he vows his next target will be his last. Of course, nothing is ever that simple, or it wouldn’t be a movie.

Look for The American in select theaters September 1st.
