VIDEO: First Official Trailer - Bradley Cooper Stars in Clint Eastwood's AMERICAN SNIPER

Below, watch the first official trailer for Clint Eastwood's new drama AMERICAN SNIPER, starring Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller. The film is set to hit theaters in limited release on December 25, 2014 before expanding nationwide on Jan. 16.

From director Clint Eastwood comes "American Sniper," starring Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. But there was much more to him than his skill as a sharpshooter.

U.S. 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, personifying the SEAL creed to "leave no man behind." But upon returning to his wife, Taya Renae Kyle (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can't leave behind.

Cooper will soon make his return to the Broadway stage in Bernard Pomerance's drama The Elephant Man. The play, directed by Scott Ellis, will being previews on November 7th and play a limited 14-week run at the Booth Theatre.
