Bradley Cooper in trailer, first photo as Chris Kyle for ‘American Sniper’

The first trailer and photo has arrived online for Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper, in which Bradley Cooper stars as Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in US military history.

Kyle served in four tours of Iraq, and gained a reputation on both sides of the conflict. The film appears to deal with his struggles at home, as he attempts to shake off that conflict mentality in order to be a better husband and father. Revealed in the trailer is a hint at the tense sequence in which Cooper’s Kyle is presented with an incredibly difficult judgment call.

Check out the full trailer below.

The new images show Cooper looking bigger, rumored to have added forty pounds, with on-screen spouse played by Sienna Miller.

Directed by Eastwood the film stars Jake McDorman, Luke Grimes, Navid Negahban, and Keir O’Donnell.

American Sniper opens in theaters on December 25th.

Here’s the official synopsis for American Sniper:

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.
