I remember when this project was first unveiled and it had a different name. So, Groundhog Day in a warzone, during a failed D-day ripoff? That has to be rough. Interesting idea if the aliens keep going back too, though.

Sounds interesting. I like the exosuits, if nothing else. They have a very Elysium-like feel to them.

I kinda liked the original title. It was goofy as all hell, but it said everything you needed to know: All You Need Is Kill.

While I definitely appreciate the fact that Hollywood has rediscovered that exosuits are awesome, I get the feeling I would like this movie more if it didn't have Tom Cruise in it.

Yeah, it still had the name of the Japanese novel it is (badly) adapting.

I think it's hilarious that Tom Cruise is developing jowls.

Yeah, he's gotta be close to 40 now, and he looks it. ;)

I love Tom Cruise in scifi, so this will be going on the list of movies to watch. It looks like it'll at least be an entertaining ride if nothing else.

Tom Cruise is almost 40, if you mean by that 51...

Tom Cruise isn't that bad an actor. Its just that his Scientology beliefs make him look like a loon.

As for this film, I will consider seeing it. It just depends on what else is released at the same time.
