New images from the set of Doug Liman‘s All You Need Is Kill have gone online. Tom Cruise stars as Lt. Col. Bill Cage, an officer who is killed within minutes of a doomed combat mission to take down a hive-like alien race. He wakes up and is forced to relive the day (and the death) over and over because direct physical contact with the alien has thrown him into a time loop, dooming him to live out the same brutal combat over and over. The first image we saw had Tom Cruise in a mech suit. He’s not in a mech suit in these new photos. Not all photos can have Tom Cruise in a mech suit. Don’t be greedy.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Emily Blunt and Bill Paxton. All You Need Is Kill opens in 3D on March 14, 2014. [Update: We’ve removed the unofficial set photos.]
Here’s the official synopsis for All You Need Is Kill:
The story unfolds in a near future in which a hive-like alien race, called Mimics, have hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, shredding great cities to rubble and leaving millions of human casualties in their wake. No army in the world can match the speed, brutality or seeming prescience of the weaponized Mimic fighters or their telepathic commanders. But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, with no second chances.
Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously demoted and then dropped—untrained and ill-equipped—into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Cage is killed within minutes, managing to take an Alpha down with him. But, impossibly, he awakens back at the beginning of the same hellish day, and is forced to fight and die again…and again. Direct physical contact with the alien has thrown him into a time loop—dooming him to live out the same brutal combat over and over.
But with each pass, Cage becomes tougher, smarter, and able to engage the Mimics with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt), who has lain waste to more Mimics than anyone on Earth. As Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated battle becomes an opportunity to find the key to annihilating the alien invaders and saving the Earth.
