I don’t know how this one snuck past me but we have the new trailer for the latest in the Sniper franchise which sees the OG sniper Sgt. Thomas Beckett (Tom Berenger) reunited with the next generation of Marine Spec Ops sharpshooter in Brandon Beckett (Chad Michael Collins) who is also his son for a new high-octane military action thriller titled Sniper: Assassin’s End. This time father and son are on the run after Brandon is framed and this time they square off against a deadly Yakuza trained assassin as well as the CIA and deadly Russians Mercs. A new trailer has just dropped and you can check it out below!
“Special Ops sniper Brandon Beckett (Chad Michael Collins, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare) is set up as the primary suspect for the murder of a foreign dignitary on the eve of signing a high-profile trade agreement with the United States. Narrowly escaping death, Beckett realizes that there may be a dark operative working within the government, and partners with the only person whom he can trust: his father, legendary sniper Sgt. Thomas Beckett (Golden Globe®-winner Tom Berenger). Both Becketts are on the run from the CIA, Russian mercenaries and Lady Death, a Yakuza-trained assassin (Japanese actress and singer Sayaka Akimoto in her Hollywood film debut) with sniper skills that rival both legendary sharpshooters.”
I’ve interviewed Chad three times now and twice for the last two Sniper flicks so you bet I’m gonna track Brandon Beckett down for this one as well! The newest entry looks like the best one yet so lookout for more to come from Action-Flix on this one!
This is the eighth installment of the franchise with Collins taking over for Berenger after the third one as he was first featured first in Sniper Reloaded. Collins and Berenger have starred in two other previous entries Legacy and Ultimate Kill prior to this one. Sniper: Ultimate Kill was released as the last entry in the franchise but never say never as the Becketts live to fight another day.
Assassin’s End was helmed by Kaare Andrews who also directed Cabin Fever: Patient Zero and is also a sensational artist and comic book artist. He created the awesome poster for the film which you can see below!
