Helen Mirren Stars in Trailer for Military Drone Thriller 'Eye in the Sky'
"You are putting the whole mission at risk because of one collateral damage issue?" Bleecker Street has released the trailer for military drone thriller Eye in the Sky, which premiered at TIFF a few months ago. The film involves a Colonel, played by Helen Mirren, watching over her pilots on anti-terrorism missions in Africa. As expected, it becomes a moral quandary when they question whether they're killing innocent people or actually doing good. Everything gets heated, and there's plenty of arguments in front of computer monitors. Also starring Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman, Barkhad Abdi & Jeremy Northam. Take a look.
Here's the first official trailer for Gavin Hood's Eye in the Sky, found on YouTube:
Helen Mirren stars Colonel Katherine Powell, a UK-based military officer in command of a top secret drone operation to capture terrorists in Kenya, Africa. The carefully planned mission suddenly escalates from a "capture" to a "kill" operation when Madden realizes that the terrorists are about to embark on a deadly suicide mission, which would result in the catastrophic deaths of many innocent civilians. Eye in the Sky is directed by filmmaker Gavin Hood, of the films Tsotsi, Rendition, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Ender's Game previously. The screenplay is by Guy Hibbert. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this year. Bleecker Street will release Eye in the Sky in theaters on March 11th, 2016 next year.
