Must Watch: Second Teaser for Anton Corbijn's The American
Focus Features has quietly debuted a second new teaser trailer on IMDb (found via Awards Daily) for their upcoming Anton Corbijn directed thriller The American starring George Clooney as a hitman on his last assignment in Italy. This trailer is a lot more fast-paced, intense, and action-packed than the first teaser that debuted in May. However, I'm wondering why there is so much shooting if it's supposedly his last mission, but I guess we'll find out eventually. I'm looking forward to this because it's Corbijn and Clooney, I just hope it's a great movie, not just another forgettable hitman flick. So check it out and let us know what you think?

The American is directed by Dutch visual artist and filmmaker Anton Corbijn, whose only other feature film was Control from 2007, but he's directed numerous music videos as well. The script was written by Rowan Joffe (of Last Resort and 28 Weeks Later) and is based on Martin Booth's novel A Very Private Gentleman. This was shot independently by Corbijn both in Italy and Sweden last year and is being distributed by Focus Features in the US. The American will arrive in theaters starting on Wednesday, September 1st in the fall.
