There’s a new American Sniper trailer, and if this second look at Clint Eastwood‘s film about decorated Navy sniper Chris Kyle isn’t as tense and perfect as the first trailer, it does show off a lot more of Bradley Cooper‘s portrayal of the man. Here we see Kyle — who in real life was murdered […]

A new trailer has hit for Clint Eastwood's American Sniper, and while the first trailer distilled all the movie's themes into one impressively tense scene, we are treated to much more of the true life story of U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle this time round, especially a mightily impressive lead performance from Bradley Cooper. Check it out below. Released: 25th December (U.S., limited) 16th January 2015 (Irl, U.K., U.S.) »

In what’s being hailed as a career standout turn, Bradley Cooper stars in the true story of Navy Seal Chris Kyle – family man, one-time rodeo cowboy, and the undisputed most lethal sniper in U.S. history.
Clint Eastwood directs Cooper, Sienna Miller, Jake McDorman, Luke Grimes, Navid Negahban and Keir O’Donnell in the Christmas Day drama adapted by Jason Hall from Kyle’s memoir. Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow premiered the film at AFI Fest on Veterans Day and wrapped a flurry of critics’ kudos into their new second trailer.
This peek better suggests the precarious balance Kyle struggled to keep in his roles as husband, father, and soldier as he served four nightmarish tours of duty in Iraq. Could it nab Cooper his third consecutive Oscar nomination after Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle?

One before it's release Warner Bros. Pictures has revealed a brand new trailer for Clint Eastwood's upcoming film, “American Sniper,” starring Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history.
The film follows U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle who 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, »

"Would you be surprised if I told you that the Navy has credited you with over 160 kills?" Bradley Cooper has been the focus of some major awards buzz for his turn in Clint Eastwood's modern war drama American Sniper, based on the true story of a Navy Seal sniper. And while there's plenty of praise in this trailer, I have to say that performances are about the only thing worth commending. Otherwise, the film feels artificial (especially in the use of a rival enemy sniper), lacks subtlety, and doesn't cover any material that we haven't seen in films like Born on the Fourth of July or Saving Private Ryan. But judge for yourself. Here's the second trailer for Clint Eastwood's American Sniper from Warner Bros. Pictures: You can still watch the second trailer for Clint Eastwood's American Sniper right here. American Sniper is directed by Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby, »

Sporting a thick beard and intoning a fat Texas drawl, Bradley Cooper has transformed for his role in "American Sniper." But so too in a way has Clint Eastwood. The director hasn't tackled this kind of material in years, if ever, and certainly not with the same immediacy or intensity. A new trailer has arrived for the non-fiction drama about human costs enacted upon individuals who pull the trigger with the full sanction of the U.S. government. Co-starring Sienna Miller (excuse us, Hollywood? We know she's in both this film and "Foxcatcher," but let's get her more substantial roles other than "the wife," okay?), the film tells the tale of Chris Kyle, one of the deadliest snipers in Navy Seal history. He's a man with a mission on the battlefield, but at home, his fragile psyche cannot take the toll. Whether or not this movie can change up the »

Warner Bros. has released a new American Sniper trailer for director Clint Eastwood’s film about U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. The trailer is a bit misleading in that the full film doesn’t have near as much ambiguity or thoughtfulness as this cut would have you believe. I’ll be honest, I really didn’t like this movie. It’s frustratingly one-note and refuses to delve into areas that could be fascinating (especially with regards to Kyle’s life once he leaves the military), and its only saving grace is a strong performance from Bradley Cooper, who does the best with the material he’s given. Moreover, Eastwood completely fumbles sequences that should be tense or thrilling; the whole thing just feels like a missed opportunity. Check out the new American Sniper trailer after the jump. The film also stars Sienna Miller, »

Clint Eastwood is in need of something good. Desperately. I want it to be American Sniper, but talk about it so far, including Brad's review, has been mediocre at best and terrible at worst. I will still see the movie, starring Bradley Cooper as "The Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. History" (so the poster poses), but I am not getting my hopes up. For those eagerly awaiting this film, or people who just like movie marketing, below you will find a new trailer, a new clip, and a new poster for the film. So much promotion! #AmericanSniper, amiritec I hope when I see this I am pleasantly surprised by what I see. I cannot think of a film of Eastwood's I have liked since 2008's Changeling, and even that had a lot of issues. Is this the age thing Quentin Tarantino is talking about and why he will retire »

The first trailer for Clint Eastwood's "American Sniper" remains one of the best previews of the year, even though it was essentially a single scene sequence. Today, Warner Bros. Pictures has unveiled the full trailer for the movie which is in the more regular style and gives us a better idea of what to expect from a movie that is popping up on quite a few critical Top 10 lists for the year. It is currently slated for a wide release next week.

The new trailer for "American Sniper," based on Navy Seal Chris Kelly's memoir, focuses on Kelly's (Bradley Cooper) internal struggle over his roles as both the deadliest sniper in U.S. military history and a husband and father.
With over 160 kills to his name, Kelly must have seen and done things he's not proud of. But when prodded on that fact, he responds that he's at peace with his actions.
"I'm willing to meet my creator and answer for every shot that I took," he says, while the trailer cuts to a heart-wrenching scene in which he softly pleads with a young boy not to pick up an assault weapon.
That moment represents the duality of Kelly's life: grappling with the difficult decisions and actions required of his position, while also juggling his sanity and his home life.

U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle served through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the Seal creed to “leave no one behind.” Clint Eastwood's American Sniper will tell that story with Bradley Cooper playing Kyle, respectively. The film will also examine what happens when Kyle returns home to his wife (Sienna Miller) and kids, as he discovers that war is not something you can just walk away from. The first trailer that hit was a heart-pounding »

2014 has been a landmark year for comic book movies. Not only did we get two of Marvel's best-ever films (Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier), but the major studios announced enough future superhero adaptations to take us all the way up to 2019.
It's been a pretty landmark year for comic books too. It feels as though more genuinely exciting new titles launched in 2014 than in the past ten years combined, with DC, Marvel and especially Image taking big risks and creating some seriously compelling comics in the process.
We've picked out our 14 favourite comics from this year in terms of big-screen potential:
The Comic: On paper, Spread doesn't sound like the most original book on the market. Like The Walking Dead, it's set in a post-apocalyptic world where survivors fight off gruesome monsters and each other. As with The Thing, those monsters are giant shape-shifting »
It was a year of many tortured geniuses onscreen — Alan Turing, Stephen Hawking, J.M.W. Turner, Brian Wilson — and behind the scenes, where directors like Bong Joon-ho, James Gray and Paul Schrader fought producers and distributors over final cut, and the right to see their films properly released. Of course, the very idea of distribution has become nearly as diffuse in the digital era as that of film itself, a material on which few movies are still made and even fewer shown — unless you happen to be Paul Thomas Anderson, Quentin Tarantino or Christopher Nolan, who earned the ire of some theater owners when he demanded they reinstall 35mm projectors if they wanted to screen his “Interstellar” two days early. In light of the film’s $600 million worldwide gross (and counting), one can only say: poor them.
Speaking of “Interstellar,” if there was one undeniable constant at the movies in 2014, it was time, »

With Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper set to land in the States on Christmas Day, Warner Bros. has released a new poster for the film, which stars Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history…

He is the deadliest American sniper ever, called “The Devil” by the enemies he hunted and “The Legend” by his Navy Seal brothers. From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States Military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more then 150 of Kyle’s kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him Al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned a legendary status among his fellow Seals, Marines, »

Bradley Cooper's new film American Sniper, directed by Clint Eastwood, is both based on the autobiography of the same name by accomplished marksman Chris Kyle (and co-authors Scott McEwen and Jim DeFelice) and parts of Kyle's life not included in the book. Screenwriter Jason Hall began scripting the film while Kyle, who was killed at a shooting range in February 2013, was still alive, and before Kyle wrote the book. Hall said he tried to incorporate "the other side" of the book's late subject into the movie — specifically who Kyle was outside of war. Read more Bradley Cooper on

The film, adapted from Kyle’s autobiography “American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History,” tells the story of how Kyle went from a traveling cowboy to one of the most lethal snipers in American combat history, and how he transitioned from his time serving in the Iraq War back into civilian life. Many of the most memorable scenes demonstrate how everyday civilian noises can put soldiers on edge.
Bradley Cooper spoke with Variety about how he trained with the Navy SEALs and worked with a nutritionist to gain enough muscle to resemble Kyle. “It was basically a science experiment, trying to get as big as that man was,” said Cooper, who »

— Warner Bros Pictures (@wbpictures) December 16, 2014
In the movie, Bradley Cooper stars as Navy Seal Chris Kyle, whose experiences in Iraq as a gifted sniper saw him rack up an astonishing record across his four military tours. Earning the tag of the most lethal U.S. gunman in the conflict, he became a target for the enemy. Returning home, the effects of his time away are revealed to have left significant mental scars. The above clip showcases Kyle on the ground, dealing with the logistics of the war effort along with a fellow Seal.
While it’s certainly a very interesting premise, that’s based on a true story, »

Actors often go to great lengths to embody the characters they play. Jake Gyllenhaal slimmed down for "Nightcrawler," Steve Carell put on a prosthetic nose for "Foxcatcher," and Eddie Redmayne contorted and twisted his body in "The Theory Of Everything." This awards season, Bradley Cooper has dared to go Full Beard in "American Sniper." And today you get a glimpse of the beard, and the man, in the first clip from the film. The movie is based on the true story of Chris Kyle, one of the deadliest snipers in Navy S.E.A.L. history, whose success on the battlefield is mirrored by his fragile state when he returns to civilian life. But in this scene, you can watch Kyle in his comfort zone overseas. For more insight on the film, director Clint Eastwood, actor Sienna Miller, writer Jason Hall, and producer Robert Lorenz recently took part in an »
