Powerful New Trailer for American Sniper

americansniper2.jpg

A second trailer for the hotly-anticipated American Sniper has emerged, and there's no less tension than in the first one.

Whereas the initial trailer focused on one scene, this gives a more rounded view of what to expect from the movie, which stars Bradley Cooper as a prolific military sniper.

The film is based on the autobiography of Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in American history; a Navy SEAL with a record 160 confirmed kills to his name. However, he struggles to reconcile his 'skills' with his other role as husband (to a wife played by Sienna Miller) and father (to a son played by Max Charles).

Clint Eastwood is directing and has clearly gone for tension, build and thought over flashy stunts - it's looking good to us so far.

American Sniper is in cinemas January 16th
