American Assassin Movie Trailer 2 (Green & Red Band Version)
The second movie trailer and movie poster for American Assassin (2017) have been released by Lionsgate and CBS Films. There is a green band version (PG-13) and a red band version (R). Other than the blood and snippets added to a few scenes, the trailers are virtually identical.
Instead of a recruit seeking to avenge the murder of his girlfriend by terrorists, the over-arching plotline for the film was introduced in this trailer. That was a mistake in my opinion. It makes the whole film seem generic. I like the ticking clock plot device (in theory) but from what was shown in the first trailer for American Assassin, that film didn’t need it. That film didn’t need to become 24 on steroids. Unfortunately, that film no longer exists. The viewer has only this film now.
I am reading the book this film is based on right now and there is no inkling of the nuclear weapon over-arching plot in the book yet but I am at the beginning (Mitch Rapp has just gotten out of training). I hope it never shows up.

The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.”
