New UK Trailer for Ethan Hawke’s Good Kill

24 January 2015 12:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A UK trailer has been released for Ethan Hawke’s upcoming film Good Kill. It was directed by Andrew Niccol, who previously worked with Hawke on the fantastic sci-fi film Gattaca. The war-based thriller tells the story of a drone pilot who is struggling with his job and the missions that he's ordered to complete. It looks like a great, intense movie, and I’m looking forward to seeing it. Bruce Greenwood, Jake Abel, January Jones, and Zoe Kravitz also star in the film, and here's the synopsis:

Good Kill tells the story of a Las Vegas fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot (Ethan Hawke), who fights the Taliban via remote control for half of his day, then goes home to his wife (January Jones) and kids in the suburbs for the other half. But the pilot is starting to question the mission. Is he creating more terrorists than he’s killing? Is »

Ethan Hawke is a Drone Pilot in the First Trailer for Good Kill

22 January 2015 7:05 AM, PST | Filmonic.com | See recent Filmonic news »

I don’t think I’m crazy in saying this looks sort of like American Sniper only with drone pilots instead of snipers. Or maybe it’s just this trailer. Director Andrew Niccol reunites with his Gattaca star, Ethan Hawke, for this war drama about a tormented drone pilot. It looks like an interesting movie exploring some of […]

"War is now a first-person shooter." Following the first trailer for Andrew Niccol's timely and relevant drone pilot thriller Good Kill, a new trailer from the United Kingdom has surfaced showing off the more personal side of the film.

Watch: War Is A First-Person Shooter In The New Trailer For Andrew Niccol's 'Good Kill' Starring Ethan Hawke

21 January 2015 5:21 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If Ethan Hawke's cool, Beatles-loving Dad from "Boyhood" made a few different decisions in his life, he might've ended up as the character in "Good Kill." And the questions around his career and duty to this country are the backbone of the latest drama from Andrew Niccol ("Gattaca," "Lord Of War") and a new trailer has arrived today. Co-starring January Jones, Bruce Greenwood and Zoe Kravitz, the story follows an Air Force major acclimating to the new ways of war, conducting missions overseas with drones, all from the safety of piloting them from U.S. soil. But when war is a "first-person shooter," how do you live with life-or-death decisions made by your index finger? It's a film with timely subject matter, and a decent cast, and while our own Oli Lyttelton had issues with it when he caught it at the Venice Film Festival, you still might want to target this one yourself. »

Ethan Hawke on Returning to Sci-Fi With 'Predestination' and Pushing Himself as an Actor

9 January 2015 6:57 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor's Note: This interview was originally published during last year's SXSW Film Festival. "Predestination" opens in select theaters today and is available to view on video on demand platforms.] Over two decades into his career as a screen actor, Ethan Hawke is in demand now more than ever. He recently experienced the biggest box office opening of his career with the surprise smash horror hit "The Purge," and now Hawke is at SXSW with not one, but two films: Richard Linklater's 12-years-in-the-making "Boyhood," and "Predestination" by the Spierig Brothers, the duo responsible for "Daybreakers," which also starred Hawke. The actor also has four other projects set to open over the next two years, including "Good Kill," which reunites him with his "Gattaca" director Andrew Niccol. While "Boyhood" made its world premiere at Sundance, the Texan film made its Austin one earlier this week, where it was met »

Good Kill Trailer Targets The Web

6 January 2015 9:46 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It looks like 2015 will be the year of the drone drama, which we suppose is hardly a surprise given their topicality. Eye In The Sky is in production, but Good Kill will beat it into cinemas, with a confirmed release date for this April. Take a look at the trailer. Ethan Hawke stars in this one as Tommy Egan, a Us Air Force pilot-turned-drone jockey who spends his days sending flaming doom upon targets halfway around the world from an airbase in Las Vegas. But even though he initially thought he was continuing to fight the good fight, he becomes increasingly numb from the video game-like side of unmanned aerial bomb runs and begins to question his mission. And, as civilian deaths start to stack up, he turns to booze to soothe his pain, bringing him into conflict with his wife (January Jones) and his commanding officer (Bruce Greenwood). Will »

A fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot, based in Las Vegas, fights the Taliban by remote control for twelve hours a day, then goes home to the suburbs and feuds with his wife and kids for the other twelve. But the pilot is starting to question the mission. Is he creating more terrorists than he’s killing? Is he fighting a war without end? One soldier’s tale with epic implications.

6 January 2015 12:31 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“If you never face your enemy, how can you face yourself?”

The question is central in the first trailer for writer-director Andrew Niccol‘s “Good Kill” starring Ethan Hawke.

Hawke plays American fighter pilot Tom Egan, who is trained to pilot drone aircraft from the safety of American soil after being grounded.

Ethan Hawke Just Wants to Fly in the ‘Good Kill’ Trailer

6 January 2015 10:33 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In Andrew Niccol‘s Gattaca, Ethan Hawke plays a guy who just wants to travel into the sky and beyond. Now the filmmaker and actor are reunited for a third outing (Hawke is also in Niccol’s Lord of War) and this time the latter plays a guy who just wants to get back to the sky. In the new movie, titled Good Kill, he’s not going for the beyond, just wishing to return to a physical bomber jet and actual combat. In a way, that seems like beyond compared to what he’s been doing: getting “good kills” via drone with a joystick in the comfort of an air force base many miles away, on American soil. And everyday he finishes up his shift remotely blowing up stuff and people and goes home to his wife (January Jones) and kids in the Vegas suburbs. Anything but a normal mix. The »

Watch: New Trailer for 'Good Kill', Starring Ethan Hawke and January Jones

6 January 2015 9:47 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Remember when Andrew Niccol made Gattacac Seems like such a distant, fleeting memory, doesn't itc Because since then... let's just say his track record has not been the greatest. His last two films, the pretty bad In Time and the sh*t storm that is The Host, show a guy who just cannot seem to make anything worthwhile anymore. So, with all that being said, he has a new movie coming out called Good Kill, and you can watch the new trailer for it below. Niccol is reuniting with his Gattaca star Ethan Hawke for this one, so I guess that is a positive. Though, Hawke, in my opinion, does not have the best track record either as an actor, outside his work with Richard Linklater. He is fine in Gattaca, but I would not say those two sparkle and shine. The film also stars January Jones, Bruce Greenwood, and Zoe Kravitz. »

A fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot, based in Las Vegas, fights the Taliban by remote control for twelve hours a day, then goes home to the suburbs and feuds with his wife and kids for the other twelve.

New Good Kill Trailer Sees Ethan Hawke In Too Deep With Drone Warfare

6 January 2015 9:32 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the most pressing predicaments facing not only the armed forces, but society in general is the exponential growth of technology. As a fundamental tool, it’s redefined how we approach various everyday tasks, quite often replacing the need for human interaction altogether. And one of the areas that this phenomena has occurred is on the front lines, with governments opting to carry out deadly strikes with pilot-controlled drones, thereby minimising any potential danger.

But such a detachment also throws up an array of moral questions — moral questions that serve as the crux for Andrew Niccol’s upcoming war drama Good Kill, which has unveiled its very first trailer today.

Starring Ethan Hawke as a former pilot now slated with carrying out kills from afar using the latest, morally ambiguous drone tech, the film will see his mental state gradually deteriorate as he begins to question exactly what he is doing. »
