Just in time for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the first trailer for Shia LaBeouf’s new film Eagle Eye has just gone online over at Yahoo!. This project finds him re-teaming with Disturbia director D.J. Caruso, and although I wasn’t particularly taken with that flick, I have to admit that this looks pretty cool. What can I say? I think I’m slowly being won over by The Beef. The kid’s got game, don’t you agree?
The basic idea is that he and a single mom (Michelle Monaghan) are framed as terrorists and forced to participate in a political assassination of some sort, but the only contact they have with this organization is a series of mysterious phone calls. Billy Bob Thornton and Rosario Dawson also co-star.

Eagle Eye hits theatres on September 26th; check out the trailer now via the link below.» Related Link: Yahoo!: Eagle Eye trailer
