Judging from the trailer, Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper is poised to be a heart-stopping look at the life of America’s most effective sniper.
The central character, a Navy SEAL named Chris Kyle — played by Bradley Cooper — logged more than 160 kills during his service in Iraq. With Eastwood’s name attached and a Christmas release date, American Sniper also seems to be a likely Oscar contender.
