Debut Trailer for Gavin Hood’s EYE IN THE SKY with Helen Mirren & Aaron Paul

EYE IN THE SKY is a military drone thriller film directed by Gavin Hood (Tsotsi, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Ender’s Game) and written by Guy Hibbert (Five Minutes of Heaven). Premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, it stars Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman, Barkhad Abdi, Jeremy Northam, Iain Glen, and Phoebe Fox.

In the film, Mirren is Colonel Katherine Powell, a UK-based military officer in command of a top secret drone operation to capture terrorists in Kenya. Through remote surveillance and on-the-ground intel, Powell discovers the targets are planning a suicide bombing and the mission escalates from “capture” to “kill.” But as American pilot Steve Watts (Paul) is about to engage, a nine-year old girl enters the kill zone, triggering an international dispute reaching the highest levels of US and British government over the moral, political, and personal implications of modern warfare.
