Initially, Edge of Tomorrow, a story about a solider who keeps dying, then being brought back to life until he completes his mission, had been blessed with the much more awesome name All You Need is Kill. Thinking that was too violent, the studio ran with Edge of Tomorrow. Boo. Whatever.

Well, since the film underperformed at the box office, the studio is taking a mulligan and now referring to the film as Live Die Repeat, which is also a far better title than the one they went with. My guess is that the DVD-buying market for a film like this is much more masculine, and the more alpha title may appeal to them. However, what about all the people who were gonna buy Edge of Tomorrow? How are they supposed to know about this?

I don’t know of any precedent for this type of move; titles are regularly changed for foreign markets, but not from theater to DVD.

First time for everything.

All You Need Is Kill couldn’t just wait around until Saturday to make all of their Comic-Con revelations. The Tom Cruise sci-fi flick has announced both a title change and debuted its first poster. Going forward, please refer to the film by the much more vanilla yet still totally meaningless Edge of Tomorrow.

Granted All You Need Is Kill is the movie title equivalent to “All Your Base Are Belong To Us,” but Edge of Tomorrow is so whatever. Sounds like the title of a Jon Bon Jovi song. But not even from his good era, a 1990′s Bon Jovi song.

Anyway, that shouldn’t diminish the awesome concept of the film. Tom Cruise wears mech suits and gets caught in a time loop while fighting aliens and Emily Blunt is there. Here’s the poster:

Sometimes you just wanna go start your weekend but then pictures get released of Tom Cruise dressed in crazy mechanized armor. Like today for instance.

This picture was released as a first look at Doug Liman‘s All You Need Is Kill. Cruise plays a soldier fighting in a war with aliens who finds himself caught in a time loop of his last day in the battle, though he becomes better skilled along the way. I really hope there’s a scene where he says gesundheit to someone before they sneeze.

All in all, it’s a pretty sweet mech suit and I’m interested to see what else Doug Liman has in store. Perhaps Bill Paxton with a flame-thrower that has a chainsaw bayonet? That’d be cool.

Behold. Scientology‘s greatest weapon.

I can’t tell if All You Need Is Kill is an awesomely bad title for a film, or an awesomely awesome title. It really doesn’t matter, because either way, it’s going to be made now that Tom Cruise has agreed to star in the project.

The film offers a soldier in battle, repeatedly living out the day of his death, and over time becoming, a better soldier. Doug Liman, who directed the first two Bournes (and Swingers!), will be directing the project. It’s anticipated that filming will start in fall of next year.

Aside from his weird turn in next summer‘s Rock of Ages, it seems that Tom Cruise has been pursuing more action-oriented fare recently, filming One Shot where he will play serial badass Jack Reacher, and signing on for Joseph Kasinski’s sci-fi film Oblivion.

That’s why they call it “acting,” I guess.

All Doug Liman Needs is ‘Kill’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/all-doug-liman-needs-is-kill/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/all-doug-liman-needs-is-kill/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Doug Liman is officially on board to direct All You Need Is Kill, Empire Online is reporting.  Based on the 2004 sci-fi novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, the film will follow the story of a soldier who is killed while fighting aliens, but finds himself caught in a time loop, reliving the events leading up to his death over and over again. With each subsequent death, the character improves his skills while attempting to break the cycle. This really makes me mad. Warner Bros. acted like I was nuts when I pitched them my idea for a mash-up of Starship Troopers and Groundhog Day. They kept telling me things like "you're not authorized to be in here" and "put your pants back on." Well, we'll see who's crazy when they get a call from my lawyer, Robert Kardashian.
