We Dare You To Try To Look Away From The Heart-Pounding 'American Sniper' Trailer

The biopic of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle has critics talking.


American Sniper, Clint Eastwood's biopic of Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, was screened at the AFI Fest in Hollywood this Veterans Day and early reviews of the film are already rife with Oscar buzz. The screenplay, written by Jason Hall, is based on Kyle's autobiography of the same name, which spent 20 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller List.

Kyle, who holds the record for most confirmed kills as a sniper, was shot and killed at a Texas shooting range in 2013. After retiring from the Navy in 2009, he founded Craft International, providing training to law enforcement and military professionals. He is survived by his wife, two children, and his brothers in the Navy SEAL community. 

The film stars a hulking Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle and Sienna Miller as his wife Taya, in what The Hollywood Reporter is calling "a taut, vivid and sad account of the brief life of the most accomplished marksman in American military annals." Already described by Inquistr as "Oscar-worthy," and "harrowing and thoughtful" by Variety, American Sniper will open on Christmas Day this year.

The film's official Facebook can be found here.
