UPDATED: A Look At Michael Keaton In ‘American Assassin’

UPDATED: Above is the trailer for this movie, a few people let me know I missed it.  Thanks.

PREVIOUSLY: One of the best actors ever, Michael Keaton, will star in the upcoming thriller American Assassin.  It could be damned good.  The film also stars Daniel O’Brien and was directed by Michael Cuesta.  Check out the synopsis and pics below.  Keaton looking cool as hell!

A CIA black ops recruit, Mitch Rapp (O’Brien), is devastated by the loss of his girlfriend to a terrorist attack. CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Lathan) assigns Stan Hurley (Keaton) to train a grief-stricken but highly motivated Rapp how to thwart terrorist operations and hunt the perpetrators. Together they investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on military and civilian targets and discover a pattern in the violence that leads them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Kitsch) intent on starting a world war in the Middle East.

    Vince Flynn was a great novelist who wrote a series of novels with the agent Mitch Rapp as a central figure. He sadly passed away from cancer at the age of 47.
    If any of you liked the Jack Ryan novels you’re bound to like this series as well.

      Great movie ahead of its time! Do you remember the opening credits,3D letters interacting with objects and buildings? First time they did this,5 years later David Fincher ripped it off for Panic Room

      • Mucho Macho

        Barbet Schroeder directed the film and he was a really good director.
        He also directed the 90s classic “reversal of Fortune” and “single white female”.
        Yep…I like ‘Panic Room” but you are right..”desperate measures” did it first. Cool movie. Too bad more people dont know about it. Keaton & Garcia were great.

      • The Night Rider

        Check Keaton out in Pacific Heights, REALLY good thriller.

        • Andymovieman

          Great movie as well same with malice with Alec Baldwin. I remember first seeing pacific heights on wpix 11 along with hunt for red October when it was wb11 back in the old days.

          • Mucho Macho

            WPIX CH.11 WAS THE BEST BACK IN DA DAY!!
            Great channel.
            TBS was great too.
            Now TBS is shit

          • Andymovieman

            I agree. Both channel 11 and tbs were great then but now they suck since they’ve changed.

          • Mucho Macho

            Remember TBS’s slogan…
            “movies for guys who like movies”

        • David Barber

          Watched that with my sister on TV. Keaton was a nasty piece of work. Could play a psycho very well.

      Great movie there was a forgotten batch of good action movies around that time Sam Jackson in the negotiator Jeff bridges in blown away few bad Irish accents but I can forgive them was in the old cannon cinema Belfast on the first night the devils own came out 300 people laughing at brad Pitts it was bad not prayer for the dying bad but still pretty bad not knocking prayer for the dying great movie but very few ever get the Irish accent right always go to ahh to be sure to be sure ,supposed it’s the same when actors from Ireland go over to America and always do thar mid west American accent

      • Mucho Macho

        I think once people know it’s not an actors own accent , movie goers become very critical of that actor.
        Like Richard Gere in “The Jackal”.

        But since you arean irishman to you is more noticeable.

      • Andymovieman

        Blown away with jeff bridges and Tommy Lee Jones an awesome movie. Same with the negotiator and devils own was good too despite the ending which was sad.

    • Andymovieman

      Me too. Very underrated. Great use of the song proud mary by Creedence Clearwater revival. Every time I hear that song on the radio and on cd I think of that film and Michael Keaton singing that.

      • Mucho Macho

        Cool underrated movie 4 sure

  • Andymovieman

    Michael Keaton should also be in the expendables 4. If they can’t get Jack Nicholson for the villain, well they can get his costar from batman. Or if they can’t get kurt Russell, they can get a guy born the same year as him like Michael Keaton.

    • Austrian Oak

      Or Michael Douglas-which is actual Keatons birth name but he couldnt use it because Douglas was already famous when he started out. Would be an epic insider joke having Douglas play a guy called Keaton and Keaton play a guy called Douglas in ex4

      • Andymovieman

        I know that. But if they get both those guys I’ll be happy they finally did it right.

  • Austrian Oak

    So great to see Keaton back in theatres.

  • Just Some Polack

    Gee, the actual villain is a “rogue agent”. Haven’t seen that before…

  • Barney Ross

    Looks like PG13…fuck this shit if pg13, boycott, if R rated support it.

    this looks much better in every way https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PI5IjUfIwXE

    • Max Borg

      Grow up…

      • Barney Ross

        Go fuck yourself shitface

        • Max Borg

          Do your parents know this is how you use your Internet privileges after school?

  • Barney Ross

    Mate you forgot about a manly movie of 2017 i feel like this needs hype,

  • Max Borg

    Dylan O’ Brien, not Daniel.

  • ColonelBobi

    Eh sounds like a CIA version of Training Day, could be good but I ain’t sold yet. I bet Keaton will turn out to be the bad guy and the new recruit will have to put him down.

  • booger

    Fuck this. The main character looks like a little string bean. Is this manly movie or pansy movie?

    • Barney Ross

      PG13 shit almost sure, Hitman’s Bodyguard looks 100x better than this sanitized shit
