Helen Mirren’s latest film, the wardrone thriller “Eye in the Sky” has been released in select theaters in the United States, so if you get a chance to watch it, be sure to grab your ticket. “Eye in the Sky” stars Helen Mirren as 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, she discovers the targets are planning a suicide bombing and the mission escalates from “capture” to “kill.” The thriller co-stars Aaron Paul and features the last screen role of the late Alan Rickman. Four new clips have been added as well, including two new scenes from the film, a compilation of television spots and an interview with Helen and director Gavin Hood.
