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.

'Good Kill' Trailer Sends Ethan Hawke on a Drone Mission

20 March 2015 6:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After two international trailers, we finally have the first domestic trailer for Good Kill. The film reunites Gattaca and Lord of War director Andrew Niccol with actor Ethan Hawke for the story of a Las Vegas fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot 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. But now, the pilot is starting to question his mission.

In the shadowy world of drone warfare, combat unfolds like a video game, only with real lives at stake. After six tours of duty, Air Force pilot Tom Egan now fights the Taliban from an air-conditioned bunker in the Nevada desert. But as he yearns to get back in the cockpit of a real plane and becomes increasingly troubled by the collateral damage he causes each time he pushes a&#160button,&#160Egan's nerves-and his relationship with his wife begin to unravel. »

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: Gorgeous Supercut Puts Together The First And Final Frames Of Films From Kubrick, Malick, Fincher, And More

19 March 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jacob T. Swinney is back at it. This time, the prolific supercut editor analyzes 55 films, comparing their first frames to their last. Although the results aren’t unanimous, it’s fascinating to see over four dozen films’ bookends analyzed this way. Swinney hasn’t set out to prove one sole concrete rule in filmmaking, but the patterns they call out are definitely worth further consideration. For example, it’s an old saying that “movies end where they began.” No matter what happens over the course of the 90-120 minutes in between the opening and closing credits, films often conclude by returning (their protagonist, another character, or even just the visuals) to the first location or image to appear on screen. “We Need to Talk About Kevin” (at 1:33) offers a particularly strong juxtaposition between the first shot and the last. “Shame," “The Godfather Part II,” “Cast Away,” and “Lord of War »

Watch: Fascinating, Side-by-Side Examination of the First and Final Frames from 55 Films

17 March 2015 9:43 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Editor Jacob T. Swinney has created a fascinating five minute video featuring the first and final shots from 55 different films. In some cases we can attempt to draw meaning from what we're seeing and in others there doesn't appear to be much rhyme or reason, but that in itself can offer a window into what the director was attempting to achieve. My only complaint with the video is the fact Swinney didn't include the film titles in the actual video, opting instead to list them in the film's description. While the majority of the images are recognizable enough, I did find myself looking at the descriptions here and there, taking me out of the video for a second and ultimately causing me to have to pause the video overall. Not a major complaint, just more a compliment in fact to the engrossing nature of what was created. I personally find the images of Birdman, »

'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: 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. »

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.
