'American Assassin': Watch Cutthroat Redband Trailer for CIA Thriller

The film, based on a best-selling novel series by Vince Flynn, stars O'Brien as young Central Intelligence Agency black ops recruit Mitch Rapp.

Black ops, terrorists, revenge plots, blood, a whole lot of bullets and much more in the red band trailer for action movie American Assassin. They're enlisted by a Central Intelligence Agency deputy director (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a number of seemingly unrelated attacks on military targets and civilians.

Directed by Michael Cuesta (Homeland, Kill the Messenger), American Assassin has the full potential to become a huge action franchise, considering it is just one of 15 novels centered around the Mitch Rapp character.

Directed by Michael Cuesta, American Assassin stars Teen Wolf's Dylan O'Brien as Rapp, a Central Intelligence Agency black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (played by Michael Keaton).

American Assassin hits theaters September 15. Assigned to a Cold War veteran (Michael Keaton), together they investigate a group of devastating attacks that take them down a violent path; a path scattered with villains plotting to start a world war in the Middle East.
