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.

Yesterday, Helen Mirren took the stage in Hamburg, Germany, to accept the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Goldene Kamera, Germany’s biggest honor for film, television, music and culture. This appearance was a bit of a surprise since I didn’t know she was announced as a recipient, so even better to see so many new pictures. Plus, the complete segment of her honor (introduced by German “Trumbo” co-star Christian Berkel, who played Otto Preminger) can be watched in the video archive. The speech, which has been dubbed in German but is still possible to be heard, featured some wonderful remarks on being an emigrant herself and thanking her German dubbing voice for giving half her performance.

The theatrical trailer for “Eye in the Sky” has been released. The film stars Helen Mirren as 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 (Aaron 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.” The release date of Eye in the Sky is set to March 11, 2016.
