BREAKING NEWS: AFI Fest presented by Audi, has released the name of their secret screening one day early. “American Sniper” directed by Clint Eastwood, starring Bradley Cooper will be playing at the Egyptian Theater at 9pm Tuesday November 11, 2014.
Opening in limited release on December 25, 2014, AMERICAN SNIPER stars 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-inarms.
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 spirit of the SEAL creed to “leave no one behind.” But upon returning to his wife, Taya (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.
Admission to the screening will be available to AFI FEST 2014 passholders and the general public through online ticket reservations at AFI.com/AFIFEST, as well as at the AT&T Box Office located at Hollywood & Highland. In addition the Rush Line will begin forming at 8:00 p.m.
