Based on Vince Flynn’s novel of the same name, American Assassin sees Dylan O’Brien’s Mitch Rapp as a seasoned counter-terrorism operative who is recruited unofficially by the CIA and trained by Michael Keaton. As expected, the new red band trailer is packed with plenty of outrageous violence.
American Assassin follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien) a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) 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 (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.
