The first trailer for Clint Eastwood’s ‘American Sniper‘ was brilliant. One of the best trailers of the year. If that trailer was the only thing they released before premiering the movie, I don’t think anyone would have complained. But this is the season of giving, and the folks behind the true story of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle are giving us a second trailer just one week before the limited release on Christmas.
In this new trailer, we see more of Kyle’s family and a little more of the story behind the film. It’s a more traditional trailer, directed at the small group of people who needed to see more before buying a ticket.
The film has received mostly positive reviews, and some people believe Bradley Cooper could land his third consecutive Oscar nomination for his role as Chris Kyle. That’s still unresolved, though. Clint Eastwood’s recent films haven’t had much success with critics, and American Sniper was shut out at the Golden Globes, so it will be interesting to see what happens.
If you are lucky, you will be able to catch American Sniper during its limited release on Christmas. If you can’t see it then, it will open nationwide January 16, 2015.
