Tom Cruise's next big film will be heading down to San Diego for the festivities at Comic-Con this Saturday, but it will be going by a name completely different than the one it's had up until now. Directed by Doug Liman, the sci-fi adventure was originally titled All You Need Is Kill - the name taken from the book by Hiroshi Sakurazaka that it's based on - and will now be going by the name The Edge of Tomorrow. What's more, we now two new goodies to help you get to know the look of the world.
As you can see above and below, we have both a new still (via TomCruise.com) as well as a brand new Comic-Con poster for the movie. It's interesting that they would be willing to keep Cruise's face hidden under a visor on the poster. When the first image from the movie was released in November of last year he had no visor on his helmet and it was clear what recognizable star was featured in the film. For comparison purposes, I've re-posted that still as well.
Scripted by Dante Harper, Joby Harold, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci, the thriller is a twist on films like Harold Ramis' Groundhog Day and Duncan Jones' Source Code and stars Cruise as a soldier who finds himself caught in a time loop fighting in a war against alien invaders. Though it's his last day in the battle, with each pass through he becomes a better skilled warrior. At this point we don't really have any clue as to what Emily Blunt's role in the story is, but looking at that new still and seeing her wearing a ton of armor and the giant gun strapped to her back I'm going to assume that she is a soldier fighting alongside Cruise's character.
We will be getting our first look at The Edge of Tomorrow on Friday when it will be part of the Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures presentation on Saturday. The movie is just the latest addition to the panel, which is expected to be one of the biggest of the entire convention. It's already been confirmed that we will be seeing footage from Gareth Edwards' Godzilla, Sergei Bodrov's Seventh Son, Noam Murro's 300: Rise of An Empire, Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity, and Phil Lord & Chris Miller's The Lego Movie. There's also been plenty of speculation about Warners revealing their planned future for the DC Universe beyond Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. We'll just have to wait until the end of the week to find out exactly what they have in store.
