American Sniper is not off to the sort of start that Warner Bros. wanted for its principal Oscar hopeful this season — after landing a spot on the AFI’s year-end top 10 list, it was completely excluded from the SAG and Golden Globe nominations and recognized only in the action movie categories of the Critics’ Choice noms — but Oscar nomination voting doesn’t begin until Dec. 29, and there is still time for Academy members to catch up with and/or come around on Clint Eastwood’s drama about the deadliest American sniper of the Iraq War, Chris Kyle, who is played in the film by Bradley Cooper.
I think they might.

Warner Bros. has released four clips from the Clint Eastwood directed American Sniper. Bradley Cooper stars in this military drama which recounts the true story of America's deadliest sharpshooter. These first scenes show Chris Kyle acclimating himself to life on the battlefield, and how he had to readjust in his return home.
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, »
"Top Five" is a comeback of sorts for Chris Rock, a celebrated stand-up comic and TV host whose filmic ventures have ranged from successful (the "Madagascar" animated franchise) to not so much ("Pootie Tang," "I Think I Love My Wife," the critically drubbed "Grown Ups" films). But with "Top Five," which he wrote, directed, and stars in, he has gotten the best reviews of his film career. So why were he and the film snubbed at the Golden Globes? -Break- Shocking Golden Globes snubs: Angelina Jolie (twice), Bradley Cooper, ... The film has scored 81 on MetaCritic and 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. Manohla Dargis (New York Times) calls it "fast and blisteringly funny … a romantic comedy that’s also an extended riff on art, identity, authenticity and what it means to be a black entertainer." Peter Travers (Rolling Stone) adds that it's Rock's "best movie by a mile … authentica..." »

During a chat with Vulture, James Gunn has been speaking about the challenges of bringing Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy to the screen, and in particular the scene he found most difficult to write – the one featuring the Mad Titan Thanos…
“There’s pressure with Thanos because you’re setting up this gigantic character that, in one way, isn’t really a part of your movie,” states Gunn. “His presence doesn’t really serve being in Guardians, and having Thanos be in that scene was more helpful to the Marvel Universe than it was to Guardians of the Galaxy. I always wanted to have Thanos in there, but from a structural standpoint, you don’t need him. So that’s part of it, and then part of it is the fact that you’re setting up this incredibly powerful character, but you don’t want to belittle the actual antagonist of the film, »

The first trailer for Clint Eastwood’s war drama American Sniper was a nail-biting look at the tough choices sniper Chris Kyle had to make in the line of duty. Now prior to its release on Christmas Day before a wider release January 16, Eastwood has given both stars Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller a chance to shine in the drama found on the home front. Watch the latest trailer below:

"Do you ever think you’ve seen things or done things that you wish you hadn’t?" goes the new trailer for "American Sniper." For those who haven’t, the two-minute sizzle reel is happy to oblige. Starring Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, considered one of the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history, "American Sniper" jumps back and forth between military operations and the Seal's life back at home. He struggles on both fronts. The film costars Sienna Miller, Jake McDorman, Luke Grimes, Navid Negahban and Keir O’Donnell, but seems to entrench itself inside Kyle’s mind as he navigates his noble and peculiar life. The film comes from Clint Eastwood, the man behind such war pictures as "Flags of Our Fathers," "Letters from Iwo Jima," and "Jersey Boys" (maybe that last one just felt that way). The film earned lackluster reviews out of its AFI Fest »

Though it was initially thought that American Sniper might generate some fresh awards chatter around Bradley Cooper, who threw himself into the central role, so far the film, about Us Navy Seal shooter Chris Kyle has largely picked up only a couple of gongs – and those either for the film or director Clint Eastwood. Still, the reviews from the Us have been mostly positive. The latest trailer is online. Jason Hall adapted Navy Seal Kyle’s book, subtitled The Autobiography Of The Most Lethal Sniper In Us Military. That recorded Kyle’s career as a Texas-born shooter who notched the highest number of recorded kills for an American.But his dedication to his sights and his Seal mates has an impact on his relationship with his wife (Sienna Miller), especially when he returns home to the States suffering what is eventually diagnosed as post traumatic stress disorder. And in a tragic twist, »
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, and U.S. Army soldiers, who he protected with deadly accuracy from rooftops and stealth positions. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle »

“American Sniper” is shaping up to possibly be one of Bradley Cooper’s defining roles. The film, which also stars Sienna Miller and is directed by Clint Eastwood, now has a new trailer detailing more of the drama that will make this film a possible Oscar contender. The film is based on the real story of Chris Kyle, “the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history.” “U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms.

The first trailer for Clint Eastwood’s war drama, American Sniper, dropped before the first round of reviews. Now that the initial critical opinions are in – they’re mostly mixed – the second attempt to rev up audiences for the pic has arrived in the shape of a new full-length trailer and clip.
Eastwood’s latest pits Bradley Cooper’s Navy Seal Chris Kyle against the enormity of his war-time experiences. A gifted marksmen, Kyle’s reputation for accuracy ripples through the military, but its true impact presents itself when he returns home.
Much like the previous trailer, this new take packs in the action and the familial drama that Kyle grapples with upon reuniting with his wife (Sienna Miller.) A look into the psyche of soldiers drafted to fight and the repercussions of those life-changing experiences, the flick has been criticized for its lack of versatility. However, Cooper’s portrayal »

While Bradley Cooper was able to bulk up for his turn in director Clint Eastwood's American Sniper, his real challenge was taking on the intensity and emotion of his character. Cooper plays Chris Kyle, the deadliest sniper in United States history. The Navy Seal served four tours in Iraq before returning home, but the battle didn't end when he was honorably discharged. Kyle struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder when he returned from the frontlines, yet was able to overcome it and help other vets - before he was killed last year. "It was just an honor," Cooper, speaking to »

Warner Bros. has released a new trailer and clip from Clint Eastwood’s intense looking military film American Sniper. Bradley Cooper stars as real life American hero Chris Kyle, whose badass skills as a sniper made him the deadliest sniper in United State history. There was much more to him than his skill as a sharpshooter, though, and this film will tell that story.
The trailer is fantastic, and offers up a lot of praise for the movie, as well as new footage. The clip is called “Most Wanted Man in Iraq,” and it features Kyle being briefed on a mission that he’s headed into.
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, »

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 […]
