Good Kill UK trailer

This new Good Kill UK trailer is a lot like the international trailer that dropped for the film not long ago. But it is a much better-assembled piece of work, with a more polished flow overall and a better deployment of the film’s signature elements. Specifically, Ethan Hawke as a fighter pilot turned drone pilot, who starts to crack as he targets and kills enemy combatants in the Middle East without leaving the safety of a control center in the US. Andrew Niccol (Gattaca) writes and directs, and just from this footage you might recognize the director’s touch. Check out this much better Good Kill trailer below. Read More »

A decade after Lord of War and nearly two decades after Gattaca, Andrew Niccol and Ethan Hawke have joined forces again for Good Kill. Hawke leads the drama as a military pilot at war, but the twist is that he’s fighting this particular war from home — he’s a drone pilot stationed in Las Vegas while controlling machines halfway around the world.

In theory, it’s an ideal compromise that allows him to simultaneously serve his country and be there for his family. But as time goes on, he starts to question the mission and the tactics they’re using to achieve it. January Jones stars as his long-suffering wife, Zoe Kravitz is his co-pilot, and Bruce Greenwood is their commanding officer.
