Must Watch: Teaser Trailer for Anton Corbijn's The American
Focus Features has debuted a teaser trailer for Anton Corbijn's The American starring George Clooney as a hitman on his last assignment in Italy. But like all hitmen movies, he falls in love with a woman he's not supposed to be in contact with, and things go awry, mainly involving other people hunting him down. I think Corbijn is a fantastic visual director, I just hope the script is a lot more engaging than Control. We've been following this project closely for a while and this trailer definitely delivers, but I'm wondering if the female hitman who appears a few times is part of the plot that is now spoiled or what? Anyway, take a look below!

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, this fall.
