After the minor misfires that were X-Men Origins: Wolverine and science-fiction effort Ender’s Game, director Gavin Hood looks to be back at the top of his own game.
The tense and terrific first trailer for military thriller Eye In The Sky has debuted, boasting the seasoned talents of Helen Mirren (The Queen) and Alan Rickman (Love Actually), along with Breaking Bad darling Aaron Paul and Captain Philips’ breakout star Barkhad Abdi.
The film is released on 8th April 2016 across the UK. You can check out the full synopsis below.
‘London-based military intelligence officer Colonel Katherine Powell (Helen Mirren) is remotely commanding a top secret drone operation to capture a group of dangerous terrorists from their safe-house in Nairobi, Kenya. The mission suddenly escalates from a “capture” to a “kill” operation as Powell realizes that the terrorists are about to embark on a deadly suicide mission. From his base in Nevada, American drone pilot Steve Watts (Aaron Paul) is poised to destroy the safe-house when a nine year old girl enters the kill zone just outside the walls of the house. With unforeseen collateral damage now entering the equation, the impossible decision of when to strike gets passed up the “kill chain” of politicians and lawyers as the seconds tick down.’
