Clint Eastwood's Oscar nominated war biopic, American Sniper, has just dropped a new featurette showing some of the real-life backstory to Chris Kyle, the Navy SEAL sniper played by Bradley Cooper.
The film certainly looks like it's going to pull on the emotional heart-strings of viewers with its stirring music and heroic visuals. However, I do wonder if the film will similarly address the controversial nature of the conflict Kyle was involved in, or whether it will simply be the backdrop for his individual story.
Check out a featurette featuring Eastwood, Cooper and Kyle's widow, Taya, below:
American Sniper released on January 16th, and is in theaters now.
