The new Tom Cruise science-fiction movie based on the Hiroshi Sakurazaka novel, All You Need Is Kill, has been retitled to Edge Of Tomorrow, and will be featured at this week's Comic-Con.

A new Edge Of Tomorrow Comic-Con movie poster accompanies the announcement as well as an image still of Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt.

We've previously seen Cruise in the mech suit, but now we see it with the visor down.

Edge of Tomorrow will be a part of the Warner Bros. panel taking place on Saturday.

Edge Of Tomorrow has a March 14, 2014 release date and also stars 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.
