Bradley Cooper is also a producer on the film, and it is perhaps thanks to his dedication to the project that American Sniper looks like Eastwood’s best film in several years. Below, watch an intense American Sniper trailer. We see flashes of Kyle’s life, but the nail biting trailer is organized around one very specific wartime engagement that illustrates the moral dilemma inherent in the job Kyle did so well.

Hot on the heels of the great poster for David Ayer‘s WWII movie comes the first full Fury trailer. Brad Pitt stars as the leader of a tank squad that has survived much of the war. But the squad finds itself facing down incredible odds in the final days of the war, as it is saddled with a green kid who has never seen the inside of a tank.
