From the seemingly immortal filmmaker Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby) comes the biographical action-drama American Sniper starring Bradley Cooper (Limitless) as the real-life Chris Kyle, whose skills as a sniper made him a hero on the battlefield. But there was much more to him than his skill as a sharpshooter…

Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield, and as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world.

Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq. But upon returning to his wife, Taya (Sienna Miller, Stardust), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.

Nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Pictures, the 2014 film has rung up a staggering $350 million at the domestic box office and another $195 million overseas. Damn!!!
