He's quite dashing in a suit, has a gun in hand, and looks to be a man on a mission. Is George Clooney trying to give James Bond a run for his money?

The actor is playing The American's Jack, a professional killer attempting to escape his trade – with a little romance, no doubt – after one last assignment to the Italian countryside.
