Once I get over my bitterness of the title change from All You Need Is Kill to the tamer but more descriptive Edge of Tomorrow, I think it could be an incredibly entertaining sci-fi action film. It’s been described to me as “Groundhog Day meets Starship Troopers”, and the footage we saw definitely conveyed that. Also, mech suits make everything better. Just imagine how much better Terms of Endearment would have been with mech suits.
Hit the jump for my recap of the panel. Edge of Tomorrow opens June 6, 2014.
A couple more Comic-Con posters have been unveiled. Warner Bros announced today that director Doug Liman’s sci-fi actioner All You Need Is Kill has been retitled Edge of Tomorrow, and now the film has its own SDCC poster to prove it. The film stars Tom Cruise as a military 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 over and over again, but it allows him to become a better soldier and perhaps change his fate. Emily Blunt also stars, and Warner Bros. is set to show off some footage at Comic-Con this weekend. The poster highlights the cool mech suit that we’ve seen Cruise running around in, and I’m curious to see how this thing functions. The film opens on June 6, 2014.
Additionally, a swell Comic-Con poster for director Edgar Wright’s The World’s End has been released by artist Tommy Lee Edwards. Simon Pegg’s character takes center stage here, but there’s also a nice tease of the pic’s pub crawl and ensemble cast. The film opens on August 23rd. Hit the jump to see both posters.
Entertainment Weekly’s onslaught of images from upcoming movies continues with a new look at Doug Liman‘s All You Need Is Kill. Tom Cruise stars as a military 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 over and over again, but it allows him to become a better soldier and perhaps change his fate. Our first official look at the film was Cruise in a mech suit, and now we see co-star Emily Blunt has a sweet suit of her own. In a related story, Emileeid.com is reporting that the international title has been changed to Edge of Tomorrow, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the U.S. gets that title as well. It’s almost as bland as “Oblivion”.
Hit the jump to check out the image. The film also stars Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Charloette Riley, and Bill Paxton. All You Need Is Kill opens June 6, 2014. After the jump, there are also new images from Ender’s Game, which opens November 1st, and stars Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Viola Davis, Khylin Rhambo, Moises Arias, and Ben Kingsley.
