The new thriller Shooter, starring Mark Wahlberg and directed by Antoine Fuqua.
As our own Martha Fischer reported way back in February, the film, based on the novel Point of Impact by Steven Hunter and adapted by the author, tells the story of a retired elite sniper who's forced back into business for one last job to protect the President of the United States from assassination. Unfortunately, as often happens in these movies, Wahlberg's character is double-crossed and then must fight to clear his name and survive long enough to expose the real plot.
So, now that I've got you all fired up to see this movie, I can tell you that Yahoo! now has the exclusive trailer for the film posted at their site. So, head on over and take a look. I did, and I like what I see so far -- but I'm a sucker for this type of thing. Plus, any movie where the main character is described as "a thinking man's Rambo" is ok by me. Enjoy.
