America's admiration of its military achievements and the success of 'American Sniper' has given 'The Reaper' a huge pre-release boost before it officially comes out at the end of the month.

The Reaper reveals the true story of Nicholas Irving's military career in the 3rd Ranger Battalion which includes his accounts of engaging insurgents in Afghanistan and his face-off with a notorious sniper nicknamed 'The Chechnian'.

The Special Ops sniper was the first African-American to join the 3rd Ranger Battalion, and got involved in more than a hundred missions in the Helmand Province alone.
