Now this is a freakin’ movie poster. As you can probably tell, I’m still a little disappointed at the lack luster release of the Jurassic World poster. It gave us nothing.
This, this gives us substance! Bradley Cooper looks so bad-ass in this poster, I want to watch the movie no matter what it is. It just so happens that the movie might actually be as good as this poster makes it look. Directed by Clint Eastwood (…did I hear some groans, come on, give him a chance!); where was I? Oh yeah, Directed by Clint Eastwood, this movie is based on a book entitled ‘American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History,’
If you weren’t into this before, after that book title you have to be now. This book spent 18 weeks on the New York Times best seller list. 13 of those 18, it held down the number 1 spot.
The story is about Chris Kyle who is a Navy Seal, a trained killer, husband and father. It goes into his struggle to be good at all of those things, which at the end of the day is pretty freakin’ hard to do.
Coop had to beef up for this role and from the side by side shot of him with Chris Kyle, he’s nailed it.
The movie will be out on limited release Christmas Day and will have full release on January 16th 2015.
I can’t wait for the trailer.
[toggle title=”Here is the official move synopsis.”]U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy and courageous exploits earn him the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world. Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to “leave no one behind”. But upon returning to his family, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.
