Bradley Cooper stars as the real life U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper.
And one thing is striking when you watch the American Sniper teaser trailer -- Cooper has taken it to a whole new level with his work on Eastwood’s flick, and this from a guy who already has two Oscar nominations.
The film is based on the true story of Kyle, the U.S. military sniper who is the most lethal in military history. The Iraqi insurgency was so fearful of Kyle and his sharp eye, that they nicknamed him Al Shaitan Ramadi, the Devil of Ramadi.
American Sniper premiered at the AFI Fest and the response was pretty universal: It’s Eastwood’s best work in years and Cooper has delivered another Oscar nomination-worthy performance.
See one of those Oscar-nominated performances and watch American Hustle online, and keep your eyes peeled for American Sniper in theaters December 25.
