Join us for the World Premiere at Vancity Theatre on April 17th! Plus Q&A w/ cast, writers & producers: http://bit.ly/2opFB9j
“What’s topical right now?,” a frenzied studio executive says. “DRONES!,” an intern screams. Just like that, so comes the first trailer for Drone, a thriller led by the forever-dying-on-screen Sean Bean as the operator of the titular death-dealing machine, Neil, whose world is spun around when a man whose wife and son were killed in a drone strike shows up for dinner. As tension mounts, Neil must try to keep his occupation a secret and his family safe.The most problematic aspect of this trailer is that the man who shows up seems to threaten Neil and his family with a bomb, which seems like a xenophobic assertion and oversimplification of the grief felt by those impacted from U.S. military action. With the film arriving next month, we’ll see if it can upend those expectations soon. See the trailer below with a nod to FirstShowing.Neil (Sean Bean) is a private drone contractor who spends his workdays flying covert missions then returns to a family life of suburban mediocrity – without his wife or son knowing about his secret life – until a whistle-blowing site exposes him to a deadly threat. Believing he is responsible for the deaths of his wife and child, an enigmatic Pakistani businessman (Patrick Sabongui) tracks him down, leading to a harrowing confrontation.Drone will hit theaters on May 26th.
jasonbourque1This is a nice surprise! A little love from Variety magazine for my feature Drone starring Sean Bean. #dronethemovie
Actor #PatrickSabongui from @CW_TheFlash & the film 300 will be here on April 17 for a Q&A after his new film DRONE! http://bit.ly/2opFB9j
I have to say. The trailer impressed the hell out of me. It actually looks very good so far, with a lot of emotion behind it. This could be up there with Black Death and Cleanskin in terms of fantastic indie films! I was expecting garbage like Wicked Blood or Soldiers of Fortune... I hope it is great! He seems to hide his accent better in this than in Any Day (so far anyway).
This World Premiere screening will be followed by Q&A with actors Patrick Sobongui and Maxwell Haynes, writers Paul and Ian Birkett, and producers Ken Frith and Sefton Fincham

Vancouver gets an early look at #SeanBean thriller #DRONE, Monday April 17, as part of #CanadianFilmWeek! http://bit.ly/2p6RXGt
APR 17Drone (Canadian Film Week at VIFF Vancity Theatre)
Sean Bean stars in Drone, the new military thriller from director and co-writer Jason Bourque which sees the actor playing Neil, the blank-faced operator of a deadly drone that drops bombs in the Middle East.As shown in the newly released trailer, Neil is a private drone contractor who appears callous in his destructive missions overseas, only to return to his family to live out a familiar suburban life with his wife and son. The movie itself is about Neil facing the unexpected consequences of his actions when a Pakistani businessman (played by Patrick Sabongui) shows up on his doorstep with a briefcase and perhaps some bad intentions.From there, Drone checks off the list of quick cuts and rapid escalation that you’d expect from a psychological thriller, but it’s made even more poignant and uncomfortable by how increasingly relevant this topic has become in lieu of recent events (there’s even a whistleblowing, WikiLeaks-esque factor). For that reason, audiences will likely be split on the implications of a film that appears to position the victims of American drone attacks in outlandish ways that might fuel xenophobia. Or they might just enjoy the movie as a commentary on American foreign policy dating back the last 8 years.Either way, Drone appears to be an explosive indie that will have many people talking, for better or worse, about issues that continue to be massively polarizing in the US and abroad. It’s not clear yet how its controversial subject matter will impact its critical reception and box office business, but we’ll know soon enough as it premieres on April 17 at the Vancouver Film Festival. For the rest of us, Drone will open for a wider release on May 26.
