This trailer for Anton Corbijn's The American shows the assassin side of George Clooney

05.03.2010

Before I take off for the evening, I wanted to post this new trailer for THE AMERICAN starring George Clooney and directed by Anton Corbijn (CONTROL).

Corbijn has been a favorite video director of mine for awhile. He's done videos for Depeche Mode, U2, and Metallica to name a few. He's also an excellent photographer.

In THE AMERICAN, Clooney plays "an artful assassin with a lengthy track record, constantly on the move and always watching his back. When an assignment goes wrong and a lover ends up dead, he vows that the next job will be his last. This final obligation takes him to a picturesque town nestled amongst lush Italian hills, its historical piazzas bursting with life. But to Jack, every location is a trap and every person a potential threat. Still, he surprises himself, enjoying confessional conversations over Armagnac with an insightful priest and slipping into an affair with a local beauty. But by letting his guard down, Jack may be tempting fate. A dangerous shadow-dweller shows every sign of closing in, and the mysterious woman who has hired him may not be all that she seems. As an increasingly wary Jack contemplates life, love and death in Italy, the film escalates into a climactic showdown through the cobbled maze of age-old alleyways. This sexy, suspenseful and intricate story blends intrigue and passionate romance within a searing morality tale to finally reveal the heart of this deeply private man.

Extra Tidbit: I have a hard time choosing my favorite music video directed by Corbijn. What's yours?

I'll watch it.

Clooney needs more dramatic laced action roles. He was awesome in Up in the Air, and this looks like a nice little switch from that. I must admit, i was getting a kind of Aged and Seasoned Bourne Vibe off of him. I'm probably the only one who sees that though.
