Tom Cruise has an exciting new movie trailer this week and it shows the actor in flight gone awry. No, we’re not talking about The Mummy, which happens to land in cinemas this week.

Universal/Comcast Corp. just released a new trailer for ‘American Made’, Cruise’s latest film which reunites Cruise with director Doug Liman following their 2014 collaboration in the action sci-fi ‘Edge Of Tomorrow’.

Based on the trailer, “American Made” sits somewhere in the middle of what we might come to expect from a Cruise film, somewhat a break from his franchise driven, action-hero roles the past few years. Described as a crime thriller, the film is hinged on a more serious true to life subject matter, that of Barry Seal (Tom Cruise). Seal was a TWA pilot hired by the Medellin Cartel as a pilot and drug smuggler later imprisoned for a decade. Both a smuggler and informant, he run covert operations for the CIA against the Sandinista government in Nicaragua.

Shot on location in Colombia, the film had a few setbacks during filming after a plane crash killed two people and injured a crew member. “American Made” hits theaters on September 29, and also stars Sarah Wright, Domhnall Gleeson, and Jayma Mays.
