Famous faces turned out for a special preview screening of Universal Pictures??American Made?yesterday evening at Dublin’s Light House Cinema. Lucky guests got to see the film before anyone else in the country and were also treated to drinks & canap’s upon arrival.

Guests included Alison Canavan, Dylan Townsend, Irish TV and radio personality Aidan Power and stylists Triona McCarthy and Cathy O’Connor.

Also in attendance was Carl Shaaban and social media star Paddy Smyth.

In?American Made, Tom Cruise reunites with his?Edge of Tomorrow‘director, Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity,?Mr. and Mrs. Smith), in this international escapade based on the outrageous (and real) exploits of a hustler and pilot unexpectedly recruited by the CIA to run one of the biggest covert operations in U.S. history.

Smuggler.? Informant.? Patriot.? One of the wealthiest men in 1980s America is someone you’ve never heard of.? With his devilish swagger and zest for life, TWA pilot Barry Seal (Cruise) is the hero of his sleepy Southern town.

Much to the surprise of his wife, Lucy (Sarah Wright Olsen,?Walk of Shame), the charming entrepreneur has gone from a well-respected TWA pilot to a key figure in one of the greatest scandals in modern history.? Little could they grasp that what started out as transporting contraband would lead to Barry’s help in building an army and funding a war.

Once the hotshot airman gets caught up in a shadowy division of the government?running crates of AK-47s and kilos of cocaine?he makes a fortune as a key player in the Iran-contra affair.? From trading arms for hostages to training forces of Central and South American kingpins, Barry becomes an improbable hero working against the system.

Watch the trailer above and check out the social pictures from the event in our gallery above.
