Tome Cruise - sci fi meets ground hog day. I'll end up seeing it
Remove the groundhog day part and I want in.
respect the short guy for seeming to always put a ton of effort into his movies, but damn he is pretty much playing the same character now in every movie. Mission Impossible, Jack Reacher, Oblivion are all basically the same character.
i wonder why he is so much into scifi now, is there some Scientology prophecy he is trying to fulfill? Also the computer voice sounded like GladOS, plz Tom make this a prequel to Half Life
Only 3 posts for fucking scientology to be brought up. Looks interesting.
i got a huge boner. emily blunt in a exoskeleton war machine. please fuck me real good.
THANK YOU JAPAN.

I use to hate Cruise.
Now he is the man
"Woman have the right to understand that they are not to be treated as though they are not understood by those who have great understanding of things like these" -Hillary Clinton
I'm definitely in; the conceit that this is attempt #14,836 (or whatever) explains away the usual absurdities the action hero gets away with.
As to why is Cruise constantly doing sci-fi, it's a two-step question. Step 1 is why is Cruise in so many big action movies - the answer is because Hollywood just hasn't succeeded in producing another generation of movie stars. Your biggest movie stars in the world are probably Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr., and Johnny Depp, and they're all roughly age 50. Vin Diesel, Ryan Reynolds and The Rock couldn't sustain, and the next next generation doesn't seem to be cutting it either (Taylor Lautner, Armie Hammer, and I'm not sold on Chris Pine's chances yet).
So if you want to get an action hero movie made - or more to the point, get the funding for an action movie - there just aren't many better options out there than Cruise. As to Step 2, why the sci-fi branch of action movies, I think it's just a weird string of luck. The last sci-fi movie he was in was War of the Worlds, way back in 2005, after all - his action movie track record doesn't seem more sci-fi than average, it's just clumpier.
baby boomers are still alive and we grew up with tom cruise in Mission Impossible and other memorable movies. Those stars would have to be reaching 60-70 before they drop off the rader. We still have Matt Damon (Elysium) and etc that appeals to younger crowds. I'd say it's a mixed bowl.

Blunt looks pretty sharp in this! HAH!
A war is coming, I've seen it in my dreams. Fires sweeping over the Earth, bodies in the streets, cities turned to dust... retaliation.
Hollywood is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until everything you love is dead.
Almost all of Tom Cruise's movies are pretty good. He has a really good agent.
He is a fucking crazy lunatic but that shouldn't take away from his movies.
He probably has a team of people that just screen scripts.
It sounds like the same music from the end of this trailer:
The one in the edge of tomorrow trailer is a remix of:
Looks really entertaining and compelling. Emily Blunt fits in that role well in a way I wouldn't expect from a female actress. Tom Cruise is always good at this part.
Beyond that I love big budget sci fi, robotics and power armor.
Besides the obvious Halo look to it, I see inspirations from Wh40k techmarines, and possibly a slight bit of Exosquad if they have any heavy duty type frames.
The song from the trailer is 'This Is Not The End' (a cover/remix) by Fieldwork. It can be found on iTunes, but nothing on Youtube yet.
According to the people that have read that manga they are really pissed at the armor design.
in the book the armor completely covered them with thick plating because the enemies are ultra dense and tear through most human materials easily. These designs wouldn't hold up in a knife fight.
I like it personally, its something I could see being used in our lifetime. I'd rather have a movie like that then one that is just whatever your imagination can think of disregarding current technology.
Except it has nothing to do with technology. The design is shit...
who the hell keeps doing these mecha/exoskeleton designs where the soldier's torso and head are completely exposed?
I get the practical answer, it's that there's no way we're covering up one square centimeter of Tom Cruise's face, but dang, it's silly. Cover the torso and armor the limbs a little, at least. It could have been a totally cool helmet-less exosuit and I wouldna said nothin', but now all I can think about is the whole arm of the suit being useless because the guiding mechanism (your arm) caught a chunk of low-velocity shrapnel that nevertheless severed a major artery or ripped up the muscles.
I think there is a more recent version that doesn't need outside power--but essentially it's the same principle, it's really just to move supplies and weapons to hard to reach areas, I suppose because of the constraints of the battery pack preventing them from really exploiting it for anything else for more than a few hours of operation.
However, yeah, it seems like the obvious practical evolution of that is to essentially account for the weight of armor thick enough to protect soldiers--considering the main constraint of armor right now, as far as I understand it, is the weight. An exossuit designed for lifting could make it so wearing 300lbs of armor felt like nothing (Which would be awesome.)
Trailer finally prompted me to read the English adaptation. I have to say I hate Emily Blunt for the role - the book version of her is a joined at 16, manner-less farmer's daughter that's turned into the world's foremost killing machine from being stuck in a loop for hundreds of battles. I still don't buy Blunt as a farmer. (Sorry Looper.)
Yeah, the armor is different from the book version, but it's not because of the enemy's weaponry (nearly any hit from them is a kill, and the death rates for the humans are horrendous), but because their "blood" is actually terraforming nanobots, and highly toxic to earth life.
Whereas the trailer talks about "the invasion", and has quite a bit of footage of Cruise-on-human violence - I'm hoping the climax isn't Cruise killing the human leadership before they can launch their attack.
Which would be fine if this was Ripley fighting off an alien with a top loader, but these suits were designed to fight aliens that shred humans like they are nothing...
I find it funny how people are getting mad at the suit designs. They are mass produced light infantrysuits that are probably built by the lowest bidder. Of course their gonna cut corners on armor for the mass production types. You can see Emily Blunt's character using a more streamlined version that covers more and seems lighter. She also has a full helmet she uses too.
The suit design gives me a 40k techmarine vibe and if they have bigger more heavily armed suits maybe even an exosquad vibe as well.
Plus, instead of a 14 year old boy(?), they got Tom Cruise.
According to the cliffnotes on the short story that is not how it worked.I find it funny how people are getting mad at the suit designs. They are mass produced light infantrysuits that are probably built by the lowest bidder. Of course their gonna cut corners on armor for the mass production types. You can see Emily Blunt's character using a more streamlined version that covers more and seems lighter. She also has a full helmet she uses too.
They built an exoskeleton that could lift a ton of weight, and then put heavy armor on it so the troops were mobile...
IM SO MAD THE ARMOR ISNT RIGHT
No wait i dont give a shit. Looks interesting.
About halfway through All You Need Is Kill and really digging it. Ill support movies made on Japanese Scfi novels, do not care about the changes to the suits. Can't wait for this.
New trailer. Looking pretty good so far, makes it on my to see list.
Screw the cruise haters, movie looks good. Whos read the novel?
Looks good. Chuckled at her shooting him each time to "Reset".
more i look at emily blunt, more i feel like she should have been the black widow...
I like the look and the premise. If they can pull it off in a single movie (time wise how many repeats it takes etc) and not feel like it is just reshowing scenes over and over will be the key to it being a good movie. I hope they can.
I like that trailer so much I've tracked down the audiobook and am listening to it right now.
God bless the modern age.
I like that Tom Cruise keeps making Sci Fi that I want to watch. Feels like he single handedly keeps most of my favorite genre alive.
I thank tom cruise for being in a movie like this because otherwise people would just glide over it and sci fi won't be as popular.
Cool looking premise. May be worth a look.
oblivion was probably the worst movie of 2013. don't see any reason why this won't be the worst movie of 2014. tom cruise hasn't made a good movie since the early 90's. if they can pull off some kind of 12 monkeys ending it may be ok.
Looks great. Will see.
Just read through the book. Seriously good read. I'll go see this for the story alone.
Minority Report the movie absolutely 100% does not make sense. It was really disappointing reading the short story and having all of the problems I had with the movie fixed.
guys you had better listen to etchazz he has friends that have PhDs in movie science
Vanilla sky was awesome, Valkerie was decent also. Ghost Protocol and the others mentioned were great also. As for oblivion, movie wasnt anything special but the sound and visuals were some of the best that year

The best book on writing I've ever read (I've only read two books on writing) -
Personally I don't give a fuck if Tom Cruise made a steaming pile of dog shit with this film. Yesterday I didn't know anything and after getting sent a link to the trailer I'm nearly finished with the audiobook and I think it's just great. I know a bunch of people that like this kind of sci-fi that I get to share it with.
You go ahead and cry about the kind of shit Hollywood makes. I've got another half-hour left of an awesome little power armor bug hunt romance novella to finish.
transformers didn't flop.
Why would you go to major Hollywood studios to make an original, realistic, down-to-earth coming-of-age comedy? That's like trying to get EA to make Bear Simulator. There's different avenues popping up for a reason.
these is an avenue for that. Indie Film makers.
You can hate on blockbusters all you want but I would sooner believe you have a 20 inch dick that sprays cum that tastes like juicy fruit over the bullshit lie that the response to a coming of age comedy was "alien or Genie".
You should feel bad about how stupid you are.
Thats one of those bullshit uran legends that every writer "knows someone this happened to swear to god"
Just like everyone in the navy went to boot camp with someone named Guzzler and a rank of Seaman.
Just like everyone who is a teacher in a black school had a student named Orange Jello and Lemon Jello
If I was in (any) business I'd probably sell the product that makes money too...
I finished the book and it was pretty good. Not amazing but it also is short enough to not overstay it's welcome. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes space marines and bug hunts.
So you write in a genie.
have you or your friends fucked any hollywood actresses? or actors
One time Michael Jackson came to my house to use the Bathroom.
I saw Robert Davi when I was at LAX. He was traveling with a bunch of family and seemed like a dick.
Yes because that really matters
I thought being married just made it MORE likely you sleep around in Hollywood
I'm a sucker for sci-fi shit and I like Tom Cruise in everything plus Emily Blunt is hot so I'll see it for sure.
My dick is ready for emily blunt.
Yeah, say waht you want about Cruise and his fucked up personal life, but god damn, I enjoy his movies. I haven't seen him act bad in any of them. He can be tough, he can be funny, hes just a good fucking actor. Cant wait for this shit...
Even that Jack Reacher one, where he's supposed to be like a 6'7 giant badass. He's a smaller guy, and he still played that movie off perfectly. At least from my opinion, as someone that's never read the books.
Definitely want to see this one. I'm a sucker for Tom Cruise sci-fi too.
I wasn't sold the first few times i saw the trailers for this film but the one before godzilla sold me lol
definitely gonna have to watch this one
I loved Captain America and X-Men, and I'm sure I'll love Guardians of the Galaxy, but this is actually the movie I'm most looking forward to, because it is sort of an unknown and I really, really want it to be awesome. It looks fantastic, and everything I hear about it supports that, but man I want this to be good. And I suddenly have a thing for Emily Blunt. She's always been attractive, but seeing her kick ass in power armor just makes me moist.
This may be the closest I ever get to an Exo Squad movie.
Will be catching this one.
I got passes to a pre-screening tonight, I now realize its probably going to take away from the movie—I can't see it being in a high end theatre like ultra avx etc
