Watch Tom Cruise Play A Drug-Running Pilot In Hilarious American Made Trailer

Tom Cruise is famous for playing heroic characters such as Jack Reacher and Mission: Impossible‘s Ethan Hunt, but he will occasionally take on a more ambiguous role. In the upcoming comedy thriller American Made, Cruise plays a drug-running pilot, and the first trailer has been released. Check it out below:

The movie is based on the true story of Barry Seal, a former TWA pilot who became a drug smuggler in the 1980s and was later recruited by the DEA to provide intelligence. The movie reuintes Cruise with Doug Liman, who previously directed the star in the 2014 sci-fi hit Edge of Tomorrow.

American Made also stars Sarah White (Parks and Recreation), Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad). The movie was originally scheduled for a January release, but it now hits theaters on September 29, 2017.

In a recent inteview with Empire, Liman explained that this character was very different from the action heroes that Cruise usually plays. “He’s a pilot. It never occurred to me to give Barry Seal a gun,” he said. “But there’s definitely an anti-authoritarian streak to him. There’s something that really appeals to me about Barry Seal pushing the envelope.”

The production of the film was marked by tragedy, when a plane crashed on the Colombian set in 2015, killing two people and caused serious injuries to another member of the crew.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
