War is a first-person shooter in this trailer for GOOD KILL

1 min read


There’s only one guarantee when it comes to war, and that’s that people are going to die. But with technology always a few steps ahead, a modern army now has the benefit of being able to wage an entire battle without having to endanger a single soldier.  As for those other armies who don’t exactly have an academy full of Top Thumbs, they’re pretty much buggered. Of course for the soldiers behind the drones, they could also run the risk of treating war too much like a video game.

The film tells the story of a Las Vegas fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot (Ethan Hawke), who fights the Taliban via remote control for half of his day, then goes home to his wife (January Jones) 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? One soldier’s tale with epic implications.

Good Kill will be taking potshots at those darn terrorists from April 10. The film stars Ethan Hawke, January Jones and Zoe Kravitz. Andrew “Lord Of War” Niccol directs.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
