Eye in the Sky is a film that involves the use of drones in finding and dealing with terrorists. Directed by Gavin Hood, the film stars Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, the late Alan Rickman and Barkhad Abdi. A British film, it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last fall and debuts in the U.S. on March 11 in limited release. The film will be released in other countries throughout March and April. Here’s the official trailer.
While Eye in the Sky deals with the consequences of drone warfare, much as Good Kill does, the stories are different Eye in the Sky is focused on the how what happens on the ground and changing intelligence in a drone conflict can quickly engage people and countries around the world. Good Kill explores the cumulative impact of drone missions on a drone pilot who for all outside appearances is stationed far away from war.
