U.S. Trailer for GOOD KILL Starring Ethan Hawke as Drone Pilot

Military Drama Starring Ethan Hawke

IFC films has released the U.S. trailer for Voltage Pictures’ military drama Good Kill, starring Ethan Hawke as a drone pilot who fights the Taliban by remote control, but wrangles with the morality of killing enemy combatants while comfortably sitting on U.S. soil.

This war thriller reteams Hawke with writer and director Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, Lord of War) and also stars January Jones, Bruce Greenwood, Jake Abel, and Zoe Kravitz.

Good Kill will be playing in Tribeca ahead of its May 15 limited release. Watch the new trailer below.

“Word’s come down the chain we’re stepping up attacks because we got intel says they’re stepping up attacks.” I am looking forward to watch this one.

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 (Ethan Hawke) 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 button, Egan’s nerves—and his relationship with his wife (Mad Men’s January Jones)—begin to unravel. Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, Lord of War) directs this riveting insider’s view of 21st-century warfare, in which operatives fight unseen enemies from half a world away.
