American Made Trailer

"All this is legal?" "If you're doing it for the good guys…" Universal has unveiled the first official trailer for a film titled American Made, about a pilot recruited by the CIA to be a drug runner in the 1980s. Tom Cruise stars, and I guess I should say "taking him back to his Top Gun roots as a pilot" which is obvious, this time playing Barry Seal, telling his crazy stories as a skilled pilot. This looks pretty damn cool, and it's an intriguing follow-up for Cruise reuniting with Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman again. The full cast includes Domhnall Gleeson in another unique role, plus Caleb Landry Jones, Jesse Plemons, Jayma Mays, Sarah Wright, Lola Kirke, Connor Trinneer, Alejandro Edda, Benito Martinez. This looks like a fun can't-believe-it's-real story, and Cruise seems to be enjoying himself as well. See below.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Doug Liman's American Made, direct from YouTube:

In Universal Pictures' American Made, Tom Cruise reunites with his Edge of Tomorrow director, Doug Liman, in this international escapade based on the outrageous (and real) exploits of a hustler and pilot unexpectedly recruited by the CIA to run one of the biggest covert operations in US history in the 1980s. American Made is directed by American filmmaker Doug Liman, of Swingers, Go, The Bourne Identity, Jumper, Mr & Mrs Smith, Fair Game, and Edge of Tomorrow previously, as well as The Wall also being released this year. The screenplay is written by Gary Spinelli. Universal will release Doug Liman's American Made in theaters starting on September 29th later this fall. What do you make of this? Who's in already?

Who is going to play George HW Bush and Jeb in this movie? Surprised the Feds allowed this one to go on (we'll see how much history is sanitized).

There's a George W. Bush listed in the cast on IMDb, played by Connor Trinneer.

Awesome - - thanks. W played a roll in this story with his brother as well, and I haven't forgot that Barry Seal died with HW's phone number in his pocket.

Cruise is at least playing in something more normal than usual. I could even venture into watching this. Although, I don't expect much more than pure amusement ...

Cruise is going to have to start playing more roles with grey's time.

The wig should do him another 10 years. 🙂

It would be hilarious to see Cruise at 60 try to play a 30 year old...

Wow. A lot of Tom Cruise haters on here! Why exactly? I only wish Scorsese directed this. Seems like right up his alley.

I know the whole Scientology history with Cruise. I've seen the "My Scientology Movie". I don't know Tom Cruise as a person (or care to), but I think he has proven to be a talented actor. Please don't ask me to feel sorry for "lower members" of any cult. I don't have much patience for weak people. Sorry if it sounds cruel.

And please don't make this out to be if you think Cruise can act, you support Scientology. Being an "intelligent" person, I can separate an actors personal views from his/her acting. I don't agree at all with Alec Baldwin, Leo DiCaprio or Tim Robbins political views, but all are excellent at what they do.

It's all cool! I thought you were accusing me of defending Scientology, which I was not. Totally respect your opinion. Cruise is a very polarizing personality. I never realized how much the Scientology thing is a part of that. Gotta say I think he was awesome in "A Few Good Men". Sort of overshadowed by Jack, though.

I like Tom Cruise, but this is booooooooring. Gosh.

This looks like @disqus_yyq0lnHEEt:disqus 's favorite movie of 2017!
