With a marketing hash-tag that reads, “LiveDieRepeat”, you know that audiences are in for a rowdy good time. The film (which recently changed its name from the far superior original All You Need Is Kill), had two character posters to submit at this year’s Comic-Con.
The story is based on a Japanese graphic novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka and tells the futuristic tale of a hive-like alien race known as Mimics which systematically begin destroy the human race and its creations. In a last-ditched offensive, Tom Cruise and Emily blunt are part of the world’s final effort to fight back.
The film also stars Bill Paxton, Kick Gurry, Dragomir Mrsic, Charlotte Riley, Jonas Armstrong, and Franz Drameh.
Humanity is at war with an alien race known as Mimics, and Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat until 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 (Emily Blunt), who has killed 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.
