AMERICAN ASSASSIN follows the rise of Mitch Rapp [Dylan O’Brien], a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley [Michael Keaton]. The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy [Sanaa Lathan] to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent [Shiva Negar] to stop a mysterious operative [Taylor Kitsch] intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.
When Thomas [Dylan O’Brien] wakes up trapped in a massive maze with a group of other boys, he has no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape. Based on the best-selling novel by James Dashner.
