Cult favourite Nicolas Cage has carved out an eclectic and brilliant career spanning the decades and across genres, with forays into action, drama and comic book adaptations to name but a few.

At the same time he discovers that his former nemesis, Jihadist Muhhamed Banir (Alexander KarimZero Dark Thirty, TV’s Tyrant), is not dead as has been assumed for the last two decades, but alive and receiving experimental medical treatment.

'Good Kill' Trailer: Ethan Hawke Leads a Drone Army

21 January 2015 8:36 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ethan Hawke and filmmaker Andrew Niccol reunite after collaborating on Gattaca and Lord of War in the second international trailer for Good Kill, debuting just weeks after the first footage arrived. The film 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 he fighting a war without end? One soldier's tale with epic implications. Good Kill is a visually stunning exploration of how a man's psychological, emotional and moral boundaries are challenged by the realities of 21st century warfare. The film initiates an important dialogue about the current techniques used in modern war, and in the same vein as The Hurt Locker »

Watch: Gamers Are Recruited for War in UK Trailer for 'Good Kill'

21 January 2015 7:41 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"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. Ethan Hawke plays a fighter-pilot turned drone pilot operating out of Las Vegas who begins to question his mission and his integrity as he fights a war from thousands of miles away. His family life, along with his wife (January Jones) begins to feel his pain, not understanding the stress. It looks a little heavy-handed and even obvious, but the subject matter is certainly worth exploring. Watch! Here's the UK trailer for Andrew Niccol's Good Kill from Arrow Films UK: You can still watch the first international trailer for Good Kill right here. Good Kill is written and directed by Andrew Niccol (In Time, Lord of War, Gattaca). A »

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 Stars In First Trailer For Andrew Niccol’s Good Kill

6 January 2015 7:11 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Director Andrew Niccol (Lord Of War, In Time, The Host, Gattaca) reunites with Ethan Hawke in this new trailer for Good Kill.

The movie had its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September.

Guy Lodge (Variety) wrote Good Kill is, “a tense war drama notable for its tact and intelligence.”

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.

The film also stars Bruce Greenwood, Jake Abel, January Jones, and Zoe Kravitz and will open in 2015.

Ethan Hawke Questions Drone Warfare in First ‘Good Kill’ Trailer (Video)

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.

A decorated combat veteran, Hawke’s character has grown disillusioned by striking his country’s enemies from afar (from Las Vegas, in fact), and even reveals that he feels like a coward for his actions. »

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 »

Ethan Hawke is a drone pilot in trailer for ‘Good Kill’

6 January 2015 9:12 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

So much has been made and discussed about America’s actions in the Middle East and their use of drones as part of combat, and now Andrew Niccol (Lord of War) has taken to dramatizing the issue, putting Ethan Hawke in the figurative pilot’s chair. In Good Kill, Hawke plays a former fighter pilot who now assassinates foreign enemies from abroad, questioning his actions as he does, despite the relative safety it allows him. Good Kill also stars January Jones, Bruce Greenwood and Zoe Kravitz, and it will be released April 10 in the UK. IFC has secured American distribution rights, but no official date has been set.

Watch: Ethan Hawke and Andrew Niccol Talk Drone Thriller 'Good Kill' (New Trailer, Interview)

6 January 2015 9:05 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

There was a time that a brainy anti-drone movie like "Good Kill" would be mid-priced studio fare. Kiwi native Andrew Niccol, who launched his Hollywood career by writing "The Truman Show," is one of those maverick indies who writes the movies that interest him, from "Gattaca" and "Lord of War" to "In Time." And Ethan Hawke is eager to collaborate with the filmmaker, even when the global marketplace is resistant to thoughtful original movies like "Good Kill." Returning for his third go-round with Niccol, Hawke stars as a former Top Gun who is benched in a Las Vegas military base trailer piloting drone aircraft. He goes home to his wife (January Jones) every night, but dropping bombs in Yemen and Afghanistan from 7,000 miles away is not his idea of how to fight a war--especially when the CIA gets involved. The film also stars Zoe Kravitz, Bruce Greenwood, and Jake Abel. »

Ethan Hawke Pilots Drones in Andrew Niccol's First 'Good Kill' Trailer

6 January 2015 7:23 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Early this year, the time travel thriller Predestination with Ethan Hawke hits theaters, but it looks like we might get a double dose of the Boyhood star because the drone pilot drama Good Kill just released an international trailer. Hit or miss sci-fi director Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, In Time) is at the helm of this film that follows Hawke as a fighter pilot who has adapted with technology and become a drone pilot. However, the task of piloting a drone for 12 hours a day and carrying out targeted kills from thousands of miles away just doesn't feel right for the Air Force veteran. It looks like we might get some provocative political commentary on drones, not unlike what Niccol delivered with Lord of War before. Watch below! Here's the first international trailer for Andrew Niccol's Good Kill from Voltage Pictures: Check out the bold red teaser poster for »

Watch: Ethan Hawke Makes A 'Good Kill' In First Trailer For Andrew Niccol's Military Thriller

6 January 2015 5:05 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The last time filmmaker Andrew Niccol explored the nature of modern warfare, it was in the cult fave "Lord Of War," which detailed the wheelings and dealings of an arms dealer with a broken moral compass. But these days, why bother with guns on the ground when you can rain down bullets and missiles from the sky? And what are the consequences of targeting our enemies from thousands of miles away while sitting behind a desk, flying drones like they were in a PlayStation game? Those are the questions Niccol takes on in "Good Kill," his third movie with Ethan Hawke, and the first international trailer is here. Co-starring January Jones, Bruce Greenwood and Zoe Kravitz, the movie follows an Air Force major who now pilots drones twelve hours a day, taking on his targets from a computer screen.
