Just hours ahead of its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Voltage Pictures has released the first poster for Good Kill.
The current hot-button issue of drone warfare is explored in the latest movie from director Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, Lord of War, In Time), which follows a former fighter pilot (Ethan Hawke) who now spends his days controlling drones from thousands of miles away. January Jones, Zoë Kravitz, Jake Abel and Bruce Greenwood co-star in this upcoming thriller, which doesn't have a domestic release date set at this time.
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 and Full Metal Jacket, illustrates how war is constantly being redefined according to the technologies and methods in play.
