Plenty of films have enjoyed premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival this month, from Kevin Smith's messed up horror thriller Tusk to Jason Reitman's poignant Men, Women & Children. Some promising films like Noah Baumbach's While We're Young and Anna Kendrick's musical The Last 5 Years have already been picked up from the fest too. And now we have a bit of hype for another film that debuted at TIFF a few days ago, Andrew Niccol's timely drama Good Kill, which examines the current state of war through the eyes of a drone-pilot. That pilot also just happens to be played by Niccol's Gattaca star Ethan Hawke and we have a teaser poster straight from TIFF, though it doesn't feature the actor. Look!
Here's the teaser poster for Andrew Niccol's Good Kill from Voltage Pictures:
Good Kill is written and directed by Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, In Time, Lord of War). The film follows a Las Vegas fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot (Ethan Hawke of Boyhood), who fights the Taliban via remote control for half of his day, then goes home to his wife (January Jones of X-Men: First Class) 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? Zoe Kravitz, Jake Abel and Bruce Greenwood star in the film that premiered at TIFF this month but has no official release date in the United States yet. You interested?

Reminds me of this small indie game I played called 'Unmanned'. Story driven videogame about a Drone pilot at work and at home. There's actions and dialog you choose from and multiple endings I believe. Takes on the psychological perspective of war.

Looks cool. It looks like Hawke is starting to get his shit together.
