2017 Movies: American Assassin (Trailer Song)
Dylan O’Brien is Mitch Rapp in the upcoming thriller American Assassin, based on Vince Flynn’s 2010 novel of the same name.
Directed by Michael Cuesta, the film follows Rapp, a CIA black ops recruit, as he undertakes a special training with Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton) to thwart terrorist operations (after his fiancee died in a terrorist attack) and investigates, together with him, a wave of seemingly random attacks on military and civilian targets. Subsequently, the two join their forces with a Turkish agent to stop a mysterious operative intent on starting a world war in the Middle East.
American Assassin, starring also Sanaa Lathan, Shiva Negar, and Taylor Kitsch, is slated to hit theaters this fall, on September 15.
The first trailer for the film, set to the rythms of “The Answer (Trentemøller Remix)” by Unkle feat. Big in Japan, starts with a discussion between Rapp and the CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy, revealing his past, his fiancee’s death following a terrorist attack and his motivation to kill terrorists, and continues with scenes featuring his encounter with Hurley, their first conversation, the training he undergoes, and the battles he leads.
