All You Need Is Kill Renamed Edge Of Tomorrow
And the film's first poster is online...

If you were headed to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con looking forward to seeing something of Tom Cruise’s new sci-fi thriller All You Need Is Kill, we have bad news: you won’t. Because it’s now called Edge Of Tomorrow. Fear not, it will be part of Warner Bros.’ panel on Saturday. To go with the new name, there’s a poster for the movie, which you can see below.

Edge Of Tomorrow finds Cruise as Lieutenant Colonel Bill Cage, dropped into the middle of a near-future conflict between humanity and a seemingly unbeatable alien race. Cage is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously sent on what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, he finds himself thrown into a time loop where he fights and dies in the same battle, but with each repetition, learns to engage his adversaries with increasing skill.

Despite the title shift, the movie remains based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s novel. Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Kick Gurry, Dragomir Mrsic, Charlotte Riley, Jonas Armstrong and Franz Drameh are among the cast, Doug Liman called the shots, and the film is set for release here on May 30 next year.

Premise sounds familiar
It may just be me but the idea of a person dying and then reliving the same event over and over, learning something new each time sounds a lot like Source Code. Also, Edge of Tomorrow make it sound like a late 90's B-Movie More

Will it be rated R?
If yes, cool! If no, I'm bored already. Enough with teenie-friendly PG-13 sci-fi action trainwrecks. More

Tip of iceberg
The change of name is not the only thing they have done. The source material was written by Japanese author Hiroshi Sakurazaka and is set in Japan. The protagonist is a young Japanese man in his late-teens/ early twenties named Keiji Kiriya. No disrespect to the Cruiser, but he is no spring chicken anymore (and he certainly isn't Japanese). It could be still be a good film, Doug Liman knows his way round action set pieces. Expect Groundhog Day meets Starship Troopers More

Why do they always replace really cool original sounding titles with bland nonsense? More

bah!!...conservative studio heads worry about every little thing.
"All you need is kill" was a very different title, it was kind of jaunting but in a good way. it stands out from every other blockbuster title. "Edge of Tomorrow" sounds like another Roland Emmerich disaster flick. It's vague and nice sounding so the studio heads can relax. I liked having a title with the word "kill" in it. fuck it anyways More

Still better than "all you need is kill" though More
