Tom Cruise Wears A Mech Suit, Runs From An Explosion In New Pic From 'All You Need Is Kill'

All you need is Cruise, amirite? While the tabloid machine never stops swirling around the actor, he's just putting his head down and getting the work done, and though "Jack Reacher" looks generic as well, we have to say our eyebrows are certainly raised by this image.

Tom Cruise All You Need Is Kill, Edge Of Tomorrow

All you need is Cruise, amirite? While the tabloid machine never stops swirling around the actor, he's just putting his head down and getting the work done, and though "Jack Reacher" looks generic as hell, we have to say our interest is piqued by this image from the upcoming "All You Need Is Kill."

The image, of Tom Cruise in a mech suit running from an explosion (or whatever), has certainly raised our eyebrows. No, we haven't read the book by Hiroshi Sakurazaka that it's based on, so we have no idea how this figures into the plot or anything. It's Tom Cruise in a mech suit, that's all you need to know.

Emily Blunt, Charlotte Riley and Bill Paxton co-star in the story that follows a soldier in an alien war who finds himself living his last day in battle over and over again after being caught in a time loop, becoming a better soldier along the way. You read the longer synopsis below or just wait until March 14, 2014 which this hits theaters. Big version below. [JoBlo]

The story unfolds in a near future in which a hive-like alien race, called Mimics, have hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, shredding great cities to rubble and leaving millions of human casualties in their wake. No army in the world can match the speed, brutality or seeming prescience of the weaponized Mimic fighters or their telepathic commanders. But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, with no second chances.

Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously demoted and then dropped—untrained and ill-equipped—into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Cage is killed within minutes, managing to take an Alpha down with him. But, impossibly, he awakens back at the beginning of the same hellish day, and is forced to fight and die again…and again. Direct physical contact with the alien has thrown him into a time loop—dooming him to live out the same brutal combat over and over.

But with each pass, Cage becomes tougher, smarter, and able to engage the Mimics with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt), who has lain waste to more Mimics than anyone on Earth. As Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated battle becomes an opportunity to find the key to annihilating the alien invaders and saving the Earth.
