Watch the First Trailer For Tom Cruise’s Drug Caper American Made

The dyanmic duo of Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman, who teamed up to make the critically accalimed Edge of Tomorrow,  are back at it in Universal Pictures’ American Made, based on the very real international escapade of a hustler and pilot (Cruise) who is unexpectedly recruited by the CIA to run one of the biggest covert operations in U.S. history, and nearly topples the Reagan administration in the process. Co-starring Domhnall Gleeson, Sarah Wright, E. Roger Mitchell, Jesse Plemons, Lola Kirke, Alejandro Edda, Benito Martinez, Caleb Landry Jones and Jayma Mays, American Made see Cruise comfortably back in more a bad boy mode, playing a character with questionable morals and seething ambition, a welcome pivot from the indestructible super agent of the Mission: Impossible franchise. Cruise has always excelled in more oddball roles (think of his work in Paul Thomas Anderson's Magnolia for example) and with Liman directing and material this juicy, American Made is definitely intriuging.

Sex, drugs and the CIA—what more could you ask for in a Cruise/Liman production, and with a stellar supporting case and the insane source material, American Made could be a hit this fall. 

American Made hits theaters on September 29, 2017.
