Ethan Hawke on “Predestination” and His Favorite Science Fiction

Time-Travel Thriller ‘Predestination’ Opens in Theaters January 9th

Jan 09, 2015

In the Spierig Brothers’ Predestination, Ethan Hawke plays a nameless temporal agent tasked with preventing a crime which occurred 15 years in the past. He travels back in time to numerous periods throughout the 20th century, where he works not only to stop a serial bomber from killing thousands of New Yorkers in the early 1970s, but to paradoxically ensure his own existence. The film is a cool, mindbending thriller anchored by subtle, shifting performances from Hawke and newcomer Sarah Snook. And unlike so many sci-fi literary adaptations, Predestination is remarkably faithful to its source material: a Robert Heinlein short story titled “—All You Zombies—” which was written more than 50 years ago.  More
