The American new trailer online

GeorgeClooney.jpgThe more I see and hear about The American, the more I want to see the film, and even though this new trailer is actually a condensed version of the previous ones we've seen, it still makes me want to see the film even more.

There is some new footage though, and the trailer does have a strong thriller feel to it, not only that but George Clooney is looking very cool and rather slick in this film.

The Anton Corbijn directed film, adapted by Rowan Joffe from the Martin Booth novel, has a strong plot:

Alone among assassins, Jack (Clooney) is a master craftsman. When a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for this American abroad, he vows to his contact Larry (Bruce Altman) that his next assignment will be his last.

Jack reports to the Italian countryside, where he holes up in a small town and relishes being away from death for a spell. The assignment, as specified by a Belgian woman, Mathilde (Thekla Reuten), is in the offing as a weapon is constructed.

Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto (Paolo Bonacelli) and pursues romance with local woman Clara (iolante Placido). But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.

Here's the trailer for The American:
