First Look at Tom Cruise in ‘All You Need Is Kill’

- November 12th, 2012

ALL-YOU-NEED-IS-KILL

Tom Cruise is a busy guy.

He’s got Jack Reacher due out next month (more on that and what author Lee Child has to say about Cruise’s performance can be read here), and the first of two back-to-back sci-fi shoot ‘em ups – Oblivion – hits theatres next April.

Now we’re getting our first look at Cruise in All You Need Is Kill – a Source Code-like tale in which a futuristic soldier (Lt. Col Bill Cage played by Cruise) is caught in a time loop, reliving the same alien battle over and over. The catch is, each time he dies, he comes back with improved lethality.

Directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith), All You Need Is Kill is adapted from a novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka and co-stars Emily Blunt.

I don’t know what to say about Cruise’s video gamey outfit other than it looks positively cool. I’m digging Tom’s science fiction kick.

All You Need Is Kill is due out March 14, 2014.
