The Good Kill Trailer Has Ethan Hawke Tormented By His Position In War

22 March 2015 8:47 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { } Writer/director Andrew Niccol (The Host) is teaming up with Ethan Hawke yet again for his new film Good Kill, this time sending him to war in the Middle East. Check out the upcoming film's below trailer, which sees Hawke tormented by the difficulties involved in his position as an Air Force drone warfare pilot. After watching the above trailer, it's clear Good Kill intends on exploring the many struggles military officers may encounter in the face of modern warfare. The film looks very serious, incredibly intense and promises more than a few edge-of-your-seat sequences. While there will surely be a number of scenes showing the extent to which combat has shifted in the 21st Century, the film promises to be more than just about war. From the looks of the trailer, it looks as though it will examine themes of love, family and most »

Watch: New Trailer for Ethan Hawke Drone Warfare Drama ‘Good Kill’

21 March 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The first official U.S. trailer for the drone warfare movie “Good Kill” finds Ethan Hawke tormented by a remote war.

Combat now unfolds like a video game as Hawke — a former Air Force pilot with six tours of duty under his belt — works eight hours a day fighting the Taliban by remote control from an air-conditioned bunker. He soon begins to question the ethics of dropping bombs from the safety of his post in Las Vegas.

“Don’t ask me if it’s a just war,” his commander (played by Bruce Greenwood) says. “It’s just war.”

The movie from IFC Films reunites Hawke with his “Gattaca” and “Lord of War” director, Andrew Niccol. The film also stars January Jones, Zoe Kravitz and Jake Abel.

Good Kill,” which debuted at the Venice Film Festival, hits theaters on May 15.

Watch Ethan Hawke's Good Kill trailer: Gamers become Us drone pilots

20 March 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ethan Hawke is a conflicted military recruiter in a trailer for the thriller Good Kill.

In Time director Andrew Niccol's latest film explores the moral complexities of the Us military recruiting gamers to operate drones.

Hawke stars in Good Kill as Major Thomas Egan, whose moral reservations about the cause of war lead him to doubt his life choices.

Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek Into Darkness) will appear as one of Egan's military superiors, while Zoë Kravitz ( After Earth) is a young recruiter drafted into operating drones.

The thriller was screened in competition for the Golden Lion at the 71st Venice International Film Festival last summer.

Good Kill opens on May 15 in the Us.

New Good Kill Trailer Has Ethan Hawke On Drone Duty

20 March 2015 12:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For a majority of classic war movies, the battles are fought by the infantry, slogging through the unimaginable horrors of ground assaults, and from airborne military personnel tasked with serving their country from the sky. As times change and technology continues to advance though, so does tactical warfare, which is now supplemented with the use of drones. In Andrew Niccol’s Good Kill, the emotional conflict that those drone operators are burdened by is explored via Ethan Hawke’s Air Force major, Tom Egan.

Egan’s traumatic daily regimen of blowing up locations thousands of miles away is logged in the film’s latest trailer. Like previous versions of the preview, the emphasis here is on the struggle between maintaining an unemotional response to duty while checking that your moral compass is on point.

Off the back of Boyhood, Hawke’s dalliance with weightier material appears to be offering something new to the action milieu. »

Watch: Drone Warfare Plagues Ethan Hawke in Heart-Pounding 'Good Kill' Trailer

20 March 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Watch: Ethan Hawke Talks Drone Warfare in Clips from Tiff Talks IFC Films has released the first official U.S. trailer for Andrew Niccol's drone warfare drama "Good Kill." The film premiered in competition for the Golden Bear at the Venice Film Festival and also screened at the Toronto International Film Festival.  Fresh off his Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for "Boyhood," Ethan Hawke steps into the role of an Air Force pilot who comes to miss the contact of combat when he's relegated to flying drones. Forced to fight using nothing but a remote controller for 12 hours a day, the pilot begins to question his mission as Niccol examines the psychology behind some of modern warfare's most instrumental procedures.  "Good Kill" marks Niccol's first film since the disastrous Ya-adapted "The Host" in 2013, though something about the timely and dramatic premise seems much more suited for the »

Ethan Hawke Questions Drone Missions Us Trailer for 'Good Kill'

20 March 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"This ain't PlayStation. We are killing people." After a couple trailers for the international release of Andrew Niccol's timely drone thriller Good Kill surfaced a couple months ago, the film has finally locked down a summer release date in May. And with that comes the first Us trailer for the film, showing a little more of the struggle Ethan Hawke has as a fighter pilot forced to adapt to technology and become a drone pilot. But being detached from the war physically doesn't mean there's no psychological torture for the killing these pilots do from a control room. This looks like a timely but straightforward drama. Watch it! Here's the first Us trailer for Andrew Niccol's Good Kill from ComingSoon: Good Kill is written and directed by Andrew Niccol (In Time, Lord of War, Gattaca). A fighter pilot turned drone pilot (Ethan Hawke), based out of Las Vegas, »

Watch: Ethan Hawke Drones On In New Trailer And TV Spot For 'Good Kill'

20 March 2015 9:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

War movies have never been short on morally conflicted characters, but in this modern age, the psychic toll of death can be felt from thousands of miles away. Modern warfare is less about pulling the trigger than pushing a button, with high tech weapons allowing battles to be raged on computer screens. And it eats at the core of Ethan Hawke's character in the new trailer for "Good Kill."  Directed by Andrew Niccol ("Gattaca," "Lord Of War"), and co-starring January Jones, Bruce Greenwood and Zoe Kravitz, the story follows an Air Force major who now conducts his missions overseas with drones, but wrangles with the morality of making life and death decisions abroad while comfortably sitting on U.S. soil. It's a movie that's a bit uneven and that unfortunately doesn't quite stick the landing, with our review noting that there is probably "a more depressing and but far »

Watch: New 'Good Kill' Trailer Starring Ethan Hawke as Drone Pilot Questioning His Work

20 March 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm looking forward to seeing Andrew Niccol's Good Kill, an upcoming dramatic thriller starring Ethan Hawke as a drone-pilot who spends twelve hours of every day fighting the Taliban by remote control. My only concern is the part of the synopsis is where it says he "then goes home to the suburbs and feuds with his wife and kids for the other twelve." My concern comes from the fact this isn't a new aspect to cinema, this inability for members of the military to exist in both worlds at once. My hope is Niccol has found a way to explore this territory in a way that feels fresh as the use of a drone-pilot is already going to get kudos from some merely for the sake of being topical. All that said, a new trailer for the movie, which has already premiered at a variety of film festivals and »

'Everest', 'Good Kill' and 'Within' in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

10 March 2015 3:53 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

For whatever reason, seeing a PG-13 rating for Baltasar Kormakur's Everest is a little upsetting for me and lowers my anticipation a little. Not because I felt it was a story that needs a bunch of blood and gore, but I felt given its focus it would be a little more intense. Oh well, we'll just have to wait and see as the rating does promise some "intense peril and disturbing images." This week also brings a rating for Good Kill from director Andrew Niccol starring Ethan Hawke as a fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot. It's carrying an R-rating and the reason includes "violent content including a rape". I'm probably ignorant of another time I've seen "rape" in a rating reason, and I'm sure it has happened way more than I realize, but I think that's a smart addition on the part of the MPAA. Finally there's Within, a new thriller from »
