Ethan Hawke Stops Crime Before It Happens in 'Predestination' Trailer

"I'm a temporal agent. We prevent crime before it takes place." After debuting in Australia last month, the time travel thriller Predestination is poised for release in the United States early next year, and a new international trailer has arrived. The film reteams Ethan Hawke with Daybreakers directing duo Michael & Peter Spierig for a story that sees the actor as a temporal agent, stopping crimes before they even take place. It's a Minority Report set-up but with a little more focus as Hawke keeps trying to pursue a criminal who has evaded him over and over again for years. We haven't heard much buzz for this one since it debuted at SXSW earlier this year, so it might not be that great, especially if it hits early in 2015. Watch below now!
Here's the new trailer for Michael & Peter Spiering's Predestination from YouTube:
Watch the previous Australian trailer for the time travel thriller Predestination right here.
Predestination is written and directed by Michael & Peter Spierig (Daybreakers). The film chronicles the life of a Temporal Agent (Ethan Hawke) sent on an intricate series of time-travel journeys designed to ensure the continuation of his law enforcement career for all eternity. Now, on his final assignment, the Agent must pursue the one criminal that has eluded him throughout time. Sarah Snook, Noah Taylor, Madeleine West and Christopher Kirby also star in the film which premiered at South by Southwest 2014, debuted in Australia last month and is slated to arrive in the United States sometime in 2015.

It looks interesting, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and just guess how it ends...With some weird convoluted explanation, we find out that Ethan Hawke's character is the one criminal that has eluded him this whole time.

Close... Ethan Hawke is the imaginary temporal agent chasing the paranoid criminal blowing up everything. The criminal becomes crazier and crazier as she imagines the temporal agent is getting closer. Then we find out she's actually dead and this is a tale from HELL!

If that's Lost, then you just saved me a bunch on car insurance.... I mean you just saved me a whole bunch'o time.

Hawke looks like he will continue his streak of awesome low-budget films. Very cool.

Are these the same guys who did Undead? They've come a long way. I hope John Anderton makes a cameo. Huh? HUH? Who's with me?!!

every movie about time travel has my attention, so this one to! Ethan hawke is a good actor with always the right choices to play in right movies. Remember gattaca?, maybe the best sience fiction movie after bladerunner..

Don't get too excited. I saw it in Sydney and it's below average.

isn't there better ideas to use time travelling..? I mean, beyond killing people and hunting some nasty criminals..?

I initially passed up this trailer until discovering it was not "written by Michael and Peter Spierig," as stated in the synopsis. While they may have written the screenplay, it is based on the short story "All You Zombies" penned by the god of sci fi, Robert A Heinlein! Huge oversight (he was even credited in the trailer). Now, here's to hoping it is a better adaptation than Starship Troopers, a book that delved deeply enough into military leadership and psychology, that it used to be required reading for the US Army Officers Basic Course.

If you haven't read the short story this movie is based on, then the ending is going to surprise you (if they follow the book better than they did with Starship Troopers)... a definite "twist"!
