The above set video of ALL YOU NEED IS KILL, was taken in London and features Tom Cruise preparing for a scene in the film.
ALL YOU NEED IS KILL is an adaptation of the sci-fi novel of the same title ,written by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.
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.
ALL YOU NEED IS KILL is scheduled for release on June 6th 2014 and boasts an epic cast including Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Charlotte Riley, Bill Paxton, Jonas Armstrong, Franz Drameh, Tony Way and Dragomir Mrsic.
The film was initially scheduled to be released on March 14th 2014 and would have faced off against DISNEY’s MALEFICENT and DREAMWORKS’, ME AND MY SHADOW. It’s suspected that WARNER BROS, who are producing ALL YOU NEED IS KILL, altered the release date so that they could market the film as a summer blockbuster.
Once shooting wraps for ALL YOU NEED IS KILL, it’s believed that Cruise will next star in MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 5. However, the rumored VAN HELSING or THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN remake are also on the horizon and should either film be greenlit, they may take priority over the MISSION IMPOSSIBLE sequel.
