In case you hadn’t seen enough of Michael Keaton in Spider-Man: Homecoming check out the brand new trailer for American Assassin in which he may come to regret training Dylan O’Brien just a bit too well.
The brand new trailer, whilst covering footage we have seen before, gives us a new insight of Mitch’s deadly mission to find and take out the mysterious operative that poses a major threat of causing another World War. From slick training manoeuvres from the depths of the forest to the hot, dusty exotic streets of the Middle East, Mitch disobeys orders to follow his gut that something isn’t quite right and takes matters into his own hands. We smell something a little fishy here.
The Michael Cuesta-directed American Assassin is an adaptation of one of the fifteen novels which comprise Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp franchise and stars Taylor Kitsch, Scott Adkins, Sanaa Lathan and David Suchet alongside O’Brien and Keaton.
