Watch the red-band trailer below. Mitch Rapp's whole life went south after his girlfriend was killed by a terrorist attack on the beach, and now he's determined to get even. Seeking revenge, he is enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy as a black ops recruit. That's usually helpful in the first film in potential franchises, which American Assassin hopes to be.

A Central Intelligence Agency black ops recruit and a Cold War veteran team up to stop the nuclear apocalypse in the gripping new redband trailer for 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. "The discovery of a pattern in the violence leads them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent to stop a mysterious operative intent on starting a world war in the Middle East". Here's hoping this one doesn't cut 50 times for a 15 second action sequence.

CBS Films and Lionsgate have released a new restricted (not safe for work or kids) trailer for American Assassin, the action drama directed by Michael Cuesta (Homeland, Dexter).
