Featurette: George Clooney in The American

George Clooney gets the look right, but we are not sure about the treatment.

After showing those two TV spots, which have already given us bad signs here is another featurette. The American seems to be one of those forgettable films because of the dialog in the film. Anton Corbijn seems to get the visuals right this time. But it is the rest of it that looks quite messy.

The film is adapted from the book A Very Private Gentleman, which depicts an aging assassin played by Clooney who vows his next assignment will be his last.

Here is an official synopsis via Collider.

Alone among assassins, Jack is a master craftsman. When a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for this American abroad, he vows to his contact Larry 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, is in the offing as a weapon is constructed. Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto and pursues romance with local woman Clara. But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.

The film is expected to come out on September 1 st. Check out the woman in the trailer and tell us what you think.
