Ethan Hawke stars as a bitterly disillusioned ex-fighter pilot and father of two reduced to killing suspected Afghan militants in drone attacks in Good Kill, which opens on Friday April 10.

January Jones stars as Major Egan's (Hawke) wife but their relationship is in trouble as he spends a lot of time at his air-force "desk job". 

But this is not a romantic tale of flying as Hawke's Major Egan character issues bomb instructions on a computer screen.

As well has filming Good Kill Hawke has also found time to star in Shari Spring Berman and Robert Pulcini's Ten Thousand Saints and he has worked alongside John Travolta and Taissa Farmiga in the movie In a Valley of Violence.

The actor recently made his directorial debut with Seymour: An Introduction, which follows the life of the legendary pianist and piano teacher Seymour Bernstein.
