Sounding like one part Starship Troopers one part Source Code, a first look at Tom Cruise in the upcoming sci-fi action movie All You Need Is Kill has hit the net.
We see Tom Cruise in a mech suit running for dear life.
The story centers around Tom Cruise as Lt. Bill Cage, which is set in the near future, having to relive his final moments over and over after getting killed battling it out with a hive-like alien race called the Mimics. Apparently, as a result of physically contacting one of the aliens, Cruise is thrown in a time loop.
The movie is based on the Manga title of the same name from Hiroshi Sakurazaka.
All You Need Is Kill has a March 14, 2014 release date and also stars Emily Blunt and Bill Paxton, with Doug Liman (Bourne Identity) on as director.
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.
