This latest trailer for the Doug “Bourne Identity” Liman film begins to get at the heart of the story. Thankfully it seems there’s more to this actioner than retread alien designs. See for yourself.
The movie is loosely based on a popular Japanese science fiction novel titled All You Need Is Kill about a highly adaptable race of aliens that invade the earth for it’s raw materials. The novel has also been adapted to a comicbook that began its print run in January of 2014.
If you haven’t read the original source material it’s worth the read. It’s a great take on the groundhog day style plot, but sets it in a world war scenario where the enemy has the ability to reboot and try their invasion all over again when it looks like humanity has the upper hand.
