by at . Comments

Opening in theaters everywhere on September 1st, George Clooney is The American. Focus Features has released a new trailer for the film, revealing tons of new footage.

In the suspense thriller, Jack (Clooney) is a master craftsman who stands alone among assassins. When a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for this American abroad, he vows to his contact Larry (Altman) 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 (Thekla Reuten of In Bruges), is in the offing as a weapon is constructed. Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto (Italian stage and screen veteran Paolo Bonacelli) and pursues romance with local woman Clara (Italian leading lady Violante Placido). But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.

See the new trailer below, and don't forget to check out the ultra-cool poster for the film in The American pictures gallery!
