N07A8475.dng

American Sniper, Clint Eastwood's new movie starring Bradley Cooper as Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, has been playing in New York and Los Angeles since Christmas Day to qualify for Oscar nominations but it finally opens in the rest of the country next Friday January 16th.

The movie shares its title with Kyle's bestselling memoir but the finished film portrays his life with a big dose of his wife Taya's perspective, since she started working closely with the filmmakers after Chris' murder in early 2013.

Warner Bros. has just released a new featurette about the film's efforts to portray Chris Kyle the man, showcasing interviews with Eastwood, Cooper, Taya Kyle and Sienna Miller, who plays Taya in the movie. American Sniper is the first contemporary mainstream movie that's tried to portray both the experiences of troops deployed overseas and the effect that service has on their families back home. Check out the clip below and check back here next week for our exclusive interview with Taya Kyle.
