The new red band trailer for American Assassin sure looks like CBS Films and Lionsgate are hoping it will become a franchise (it is based on a series of novels by Vince Flynn).

If the movie is half as good as the trailer, there’s a very good chance it will be.

American Assassin will be in theaters on September 15th.

In Theaters September 2017

AMERICAN ASSASSIN follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien), a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.
