A new trailer has been released for Andrew Niccol‘s drone pilot drama Good Kill, starring Ethan Hawke and January Jones. Hawke stars as Major Thomas Egan, a family man who begins to question the ethics of his job flying drone missions in Afghanistan from a shipping bunker in Las Vegas. The stress of his working life begins to take a disturbing toll on his mental health and effects his relationship with his wife Molly (Jones).
IFC Films have just released a new US trailer for the flick, showcasing some of the intense situations Hawke’s characters will face! I really like the idea of the problems behind using drone pilots and how Hawke’s character is affected by the work he’s doing. The general tone within the trailer promises more than your average War story, which is great news and Niccol’s talent as a director is beginning to blossom with titles like The Host under his belt.
Check out the trailer and see what you think. Also starring Zoe Kravitz, Jake Abel, Bruce Greenwood and Alma Sisneros; Good Kill hits theatres in a limited release on May 15.
