American Assassin looks pretty seat grabbing.

Based on the novel of the same name, Dylan O’Brien plays Mitch Rapp, an unassuming college student who suddenly finds himself thrust into the world of spies and assassins after he sees his fiancee killed in a terrorist attack.

Grief-stricken and wanting payback, he is recruited by CIA deputy director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) and sent to train with Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton), who would be the most feared training officer in the CIA if more than a handful of people at the agency actually knew of his existence.

American Assassin opens on Sept. 15.
