Yesterday, we showed you the slick poster for Anton Corbijn’s upcoming drama The American, which stars George Clooney as an assassin in the Italian countryside doing one last job. Today, there’s a new trailer for the film, and sadly it is not as creative as the poster. It makes the movie out to be a generic action film. I prefer the first trailer, but perhaps you’ll feel differently.
Hit the jump to check out the new trailer. The American hits theaters on September 1st.
Trailer via AwardsDaily.
For those just tuning in, here’s the official synopsis for The American:
Alone among assassins, Jack is a master craftsman. When a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for this American abroad, he vows to his contact Larry 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, is in the offing as a weapon is constructed. Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto and pursues romance with local woman Clara. But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.
