Fans of the underrated sci-fi cult classic Gattaca are in for a treat with Good Kill. This war thriller reteams Ethan Hawke with writer/director Andrew Niccol for a timely tale about Drones and their effects on society. Voltage Pictures has released the first international trailer, in anticipation of the film's release in the UK this April.
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 he fighting a war without end? This is one soldier's tale with epic implications.
Good Kill offers an exploration of how a man's psychological, emotional and moral boundaries are challenged by the realities of 21st century warfare. It also stars Bruce Greenwood, Jake Abel, and Zoe Kravitz. Take a look at the first footage as we await an official U.S. release date:
