Tom Cruise's Sci-Fi 'All You Need is Kill' Retitled 'Edge of Tomorrow'
Briefly: Just in time for its Comic-Con unveiling later this week, Warner Bros has announced an official title change/update for the sci-fi movie All You Need is Kill. Or, formerly known as All You Need is Kill, based on the book of that name by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. Now it's titled Edge of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt and Bill Paxton, directed by Doug Liman. From a screenplay by Dante Harper, the story follows an officer (Cruise) fighting a futuristic war against an alien race who gets caught in a suicidal time loop, forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again and again. Edge of Tomorrow seems like a good time loop title, though it does have a bit of a Bond ring to it. Check out the latest photo from the movie and the first teaser poster below and stay tuned for Comic-Con coverage.
Update! Here comes the first official poster for Edge of Tomorrow, as it's now called, from @WBPictures:
"We are extremely pleased to be able to give the Comic-Con audience, who've always been so supportive of us, the first peek at footage from Edge of Tomorrow. The movie has all of us at the Studio very excited, and we can’t wait to see the reactions of fans who know and love the sci-fi genre so well." Edge of Tomorrow is set in the distant future during war between a race of aliens called Mimics and the human race. Here's the IMDb synopsis: A soldier fighting in a war with aliens finds himself caught in a time loop of his last day in the battle, though he becomes better skilled along the way. Cruise plays Lt. Col. Bill Cage, an untrained and ill-equipped officer who is dropped "into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission," but gets stuck in a time loop on the same mission. Doug Liman (Go, Bourne Identity, Jumper) is directing. Warner Bros will release Edge of Tomorrow, formerly All You Need is Kill, in theaters everywhere June 6th next year.
