Warner Bros. has begun to shake up their 2014 schedule. The most interesting move is Noam Murro‘s 300: Rise of the Empire, originally scheduled for release this August, has been pushed back to March 7, 2014. The film already set for that date, Doug Liman‘s sci-fi film with Tom Cruise, All You Need Is Kill, has now been moved to the summer, specifically June 6, 2014. Read More »

The future! We love movies about the future, in part because they give creators the chance to really play with convention and visual design. So we’ve got set pics from four films set in the near to distant future, thanks to the wave of sci-fi films that is hitting theaters and producers’ offices in the wake of successful superhero pictures.
After the break:
- Check out the rather colorful street set of Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem,
- RoboCop engages in a little offensive driving,
- Gaze in wonder at Tom Cruise in fairly mundane military dress for All You Need is Kill,
- Finally, see Jennifer Lawrence and other Hunger Games combatants in their new battle gear.

Tom Cruise has worked in just about every genre you could think of over the course of his three-decade career, but lately he seems to be on something of a sci-fi kick. He recently attached himself to Our Name is Adam, and has Joseph Kosinski’s Oblivion and Doug Liman‘s All You Need is Kill both due out next year. Perhaps the first image from the latter explains why he’s so interested in aliens and apocalypses as of late. After all, when else does a guy get to don a giant robotic exoskeleton? Hit the jump to take a look.

Looks like Warner Bros. is really going to keep the title All You Need is Kill for the Doug Liman-directed sci-fi thriller starring Tom Cruise as a soldier who is killed during his first few minutes of battle, but finds himself reliving his last day over and over again. The common description for the film has been Groundhog Day meets Starship Troopers, and though the script went through some rewrites to accommodate Cruise, that core idea remains the same. Sounds like Cruise starts off as an inexperienced officer (think Lt. Gorman, from Aliens) but becomes a hardened battle vet thanks to his looped final day.
Warner Bros. has now set a March 14, 2013 release date for the film, and we’ve got an updated synopsis and cast list below. Read More »
A script that finds serious studio favor can push a project from long-simmering development into full boil, and that seems to have happened with Sony and The Equalizer. Based on the TV series in which Edward Woodward played a former covert ops expert who donates his services to people in trouble, the film will star Denzel Washington as a new version of the title character.
Richard Wenk recently turned in a new script draft, and Sony likes it enough to push for an April 2013 start date, with a shoot likely to take place in Boston. Some details about the new Equalizer are after the break. Read More »
Emily Blunt is getting her sci-fi on once again. The star of The Adjustment Bureau and the upcoming Looper is in talks to co-star with Tom Cruise in All You Need Is Kill, a sci-fi action film with a Groundhog Day twist. Doug Liman directs. Read more after the jump. Read More »
Rapper T.I. has done a few movies (Takers, American Gangster, ATL) but has had his cinematic aspirations derailed by little things like county jail and federal prison stints. But he’s back at work, and in an interview conducted at SXSW, T.I. said that he’s got a couple of film projects on the horizon.
Specifically, the rapper said “there is a Marvel Comic franchise that [has] been inquiring about my availability for some time,” and “we also have a new Tom Cruise film with Doug Liman… I have that as well, on the horizon.” That would be We Mortals Are, once titled All You Need is Kill, the film in which Cruise plays a soldier in a future war who is killed, but has to relive his last hours, Groundhog Day-style, over and over again. I liked one draft of the script quite a bit; the film could be a wild, action-packed and slightly weird experience.
Check the video interview after the break, and get news of Christopher Meloni’s new indie, and the dark comedy that has recruited actors like Gillian Jacobs and Ned Beatty. Read More »
Looks like Tom Cruise is really going to star in Doug Liman‘s All You Need Is Kill, the film that has been given the shorthand description ‘Starship Troopers meets Groundhog Day‘ thanks to a plot that follows a soldier in a future war who is killed, but relives his final day like a gamer replaying a video game level over and over until he is able to think and fight his way out of the loop. For now it also looks like All You Need Is Kill will be the title going forward – there was a point when we thought the film might be retitled. (And that could still happen.)
That makes the second big futuristic story Cruise is set to anchor — the other is Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski’s Oblivion. That one is likely to be Cruise’s next movie, with All You Need Is Kill following after. Doug Liman has insisted to Cruise that the two sci-fi films will be completely different from one another, and whatever you think of Cruise, the simple fact is that we’re getting two new sci-fi films that aren’t based on big existing franchises, thanks in part to his interest in them.
