Tom Cruise Plans Another Sci-Fi Epic - The Alien War Picture, Yukikaze

Tom Cruise has Oblivion in UK cinemas now, and in US cinemas from the weekend; next Spring he’ll have All You Need is Kill; somewhere a little further down the line, it seems, he’ll also have Yukikaze. They’re all sci-fi action stories.

What’s more Yukikaze will be based upon Japanese literature, as is All You Need is Kill. It would appear that Mr. Cruise is going through a phase.

There were a number of Yukikaze novels, say The Hollywood Reporter, and they were previously adapted into a series anime movies.

Here’s a dubbed dogfight from one of those.

Cruise’s character will be the ace dogfighter – it would appear that he does like to repeat himself* – who takes the war with alien thingies back to their homeplanet.

There’s another trend exemplified here, perhaps. Yukikaze‘s aliens attack us through a portal, called the JAM – compare with similar attack strategems in last year’s Avengers and this year’s Pacific Rim. And then there’s Chris Nolan’s Interstellar. Basically, wormholes are really happening right now.

An alien planet called Fairy, though? That’s probably a one-off.

*Note: All You Need Is Kill has a time loop mechanic that will give him plenty of opportunity to do things over and over.
