Tom Cruise is the Top Gun of Smugglers — American Made' Trailer

Tom Cruise as Barry Seal in American Made- Credit Universal

Not only is he appearing in Universal's The Mummy, he also stars in the hotly anticipated crime-thriller American Made, from director Doug Liman.

But don't expect anything like "Top Gun".

And he's not exactly squeaky clean.

Barry Seal (Cruise) is a pilot who was bored with his life flying for the TSA.

"And some of this shit really happened".

Have a look at the trailer below. The film has a vibe that's like The Wolf of Wall Street meets The Infiltrator as Cruise finds himself not only working for the Central Intelligence Agency and the DEA, but also Pablo Escobar himself, one of the most notorious drug kingpins ever.

After he gets out of the plane, covered in cocaine, he flashes the usual dazzling Cruise grin and begins handing out cash to youngsters and saying, "You never saw me".

But which one really has Barry's loyalty? Tom Cruise and Doug Liman collaborate great together.

But after watching the trailer above, we're thinking that the movie will be a much more entertaining way to find out.

American Made was previously known as "Mena", and actually filmed in the summer of 2015 to be released this past Christmas, but the film was pushed to a late 2017 release back last August. Liman's a deeply underrated action director (his prior film, The Wall, was well-received but out of theaters in a week), and we're excited to see what he brings to the table, knowing that he can already extract a good performance from Cruise.

Based on a true story, American Made co-stars Domhnall Gleeson, Sarah Wright, E. Roger Mitchell and Jesse Plemons.
