Warner Bros. released a full press release which you can read HERE
Important to know is that they’ve confirmed that they’ll be showing a preview footage of the film during the San Diego Comic-Con panel on Saturday 20 July! Really hope the preview will find it’s way on the official Warner Bros YouTube channel afterwards so all the fans can have a look.
I’ve the read the novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka and it was a really enjoyable read with lots of humour and action. The time-loop was done really well, so looking forward to see how similar or different the movie will be.
ComicBookMovie posted some pictures of the costumes from Edge of Tomorrow. These are the army suits which Tom Cruise, Jonas Armstrong and Emily Blunt had to wear during the battle scenes with the Mimics. Looks very impressive and somewhat heavy! Know there was a lot of running involved wearing these suits…
According to reports: Warner Bros. decided to push back the release date of All You Need is Kill from March to the 6th of June 2014. (perhaps 30th of May depending where you live)
The Sci -Fi epic action blockbuster starring Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt and Jonas Armstrong will now be added to the summer schedule which is rather cool! 😀
Though it has to be said, Warner Bros. does make a habit of changing release dates…I’m sure fellow Harry Potter fans will know what I’m on about. 😉
I just hope this doesn’t mean we’ve to wait 3 months longer to get the first stills or any other promo material, or why not a confirmation & info on Jonas Armstrong’s character name ‘Skinner’? Ahem yeah that last one would be a good start. It’s just that when you check in on imdb, you actually get names and ranks of the extras, instead of some of the main actors which is a bit annoying.
Beware of major *SPOILERS* though if you continue to read the article as it gives an in-depth preview of the plot as it also reviews the Sci_Fi novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka upon which the film is based on. You can read all about it on the IGN website.
You can buy the novel on amazon if you’re interested. I bought the kindle copy three months ago, and I agree with IGN that the book was actually a really entertaining read and funny too! 🙂 The film of course will be quite a bit different with the change of characters and personalities to fit with Tom Cruise as the lead…but none the less hope they kept as close to the novel as possible. If you read the novel you’ll know that Kiriya’s best friend would be the best fit for Jonas’ character in the film. I can only hope the part exists in the film and that they gave it to Jonas to play. Unless the writers came up with new characters and then we can only hope for the best really. Apart from the fact that Jonas is playing ‘Skinner’ nothing is known so far, so we’ll have to wait a bit longer for more news on that.
And yes a trailer or even a couple of stills would be rather awesome! 😀
I know I haven’t updated all that much on All You Need is Kill , mostly because well Jonas Armstrong is never really mentioned in all the ‘news’… as you can only imagine what google alert sends my way most of the time. Argh!
But at last some share – worthy news in the form of an interview with the very lovely Emily Blunt who’s promoting her new film with Colin Firth ‘Arthur Newman’ on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and Tom Cruise happens to stop by as well to promote ‘Oblivion’. So naturally with them both on the sofa they briefly talked about ‘All You Need is Kill’ too – not in detail mind, but at least you get a bit of an insight. 🙂
