Tom Cruise reteams with his Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman for a “based on true events” action/comedy/thriller American Made. Cruise plays Barry Seal who, in the 80’s, parlayed his past experience as a commercial airline pilot into becoming a smuggler for both the CIA and the Medellin Cartel headed by Pablo Escobar. Sarah Wright, Domhnall Gleeson, Jayma Mays, Jesse Plemons and Caleb Landry Jones co-star and it looks like it’s in the vein of recent biopics/based on a true story movies like American Hustle or The Wolf of Wall Street with a slightly heightened and more comedic takes on events, although Seal’s story had a tragic end as he was assassinated by the cartel. It’s out on September 29th and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
