There’s been a trend going back the last 20 years or so of movies with short, punchy titles — half of which is dedicated to the good ol’ U.S. of A.

Whether this has to do with market research showing that Americans love America or because “American” movies are bound to show up in alphabetized OnDemand titles first, movie theaters are running rampant with national pride.

Last week saw the release of American Assassin, starring Dylan O’Brien and Michael Keaton. And this Friday, we’re getting Tom Cruise in American Made.
