Oscar winner George Clooney puts his leading man skills to the test in this new clip from 'The American,' released exclusively to Moviefone.

In the middle of a crowded street, Clooney, who plays Jack, a master assassin, asks his girlfriend (played by Violante Placido) to come away with him forever, and, like any sane woman would do, she accepts.

Of course, since 'The American' is a suspense thriller, the scene isn't all wine and roses. As it turns out, a mysterious female sniper is hiding out on a rooftop, aiming her target directly at the happy couple.

Do they make it out alive? Watch the clip above, then check out 'The American' when it hits theaters on Sept. 1.
