Focus Features has released the trailer for the upcoming film The American, starring George Clooney! Clooney is one of those actors who I trust. Meaning, if he’s in it, I will watch it no matter what just based on the fact that I think he’s brilliant and makes anything look good (especially certain pairs of pants…).

The American looks like just another awesome film to add to Clooney’s repertoire. The movie is also directed by Anton Corbijn (Control) who has been keeping a blog about his experience working on the movie. The blog is updated frequently and already has some pretty cool photographs posted, including one of George in a fuzzy wuzzy hat. So check out the blog and the details on the movie below, along with the preview!

Cast: George Clooney, Violante Placido, Thekla Reuten, Paolo Bonacelli, Bruce Altman

Synopsis: Academy Award winner George Clooney stars in the title role of this suspense thriller, filmed on location in Italy. Alone among assassins, Jack (played by Mr. Clooney) is a master craftsman. When a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for this American abroad, he vows to his contact Larry (Bruce Altman) that his next assignment will be his last. Jack reports to the Italian countryside, where he holes up in a small town and relishes being away from death for a spell. The assignment, as specified by a Belgian woman, Mathilde (Thekla Reuten of In Bruges), is in the offing as a weapon is constructed. Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto (Italian stage and screen veteran Paolo Bonacelli) and pursues romance with local woman Clara (Italian leading lady Violante Placido). But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.
