American Assassin: Teaser Trailer Released Online

CBS Films have released the first trailer for their upcoming thriller American Assassin starring Dylan O’Brien.


The synopsis for the film is as follows:

American Assassin follows the rise of Mitch Rapp a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley. The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent to stop a mysterious operative intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.


Based on Vince Flynn’s best-selling book series I thought the teaser trailer was fine. It very much looks origin-heavy as this teaser focuses on Rapp being trained before he’s set loose and for a potential franchise that’s not a bad thing. I am interested to see how O’Brien does leading a film like this as he has a lot of promise. American Assassin also stars Michael KeatonTaylor KitschSanaa Lathan and Shiva Negar.


American Assassin is scheduled for cinematic release on the 15th September 2017.
