All You Need is Kill

‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Inspiration ‘All You Need Is Kill’ Gets Manga Remake by ‘Death Note’ Creator, Simultaneous Digital Release [Preview]

12_13

If you weren't aware that Edge of Tomorrow -- the new Tom Cruise movie that opened in American cinemas last weekend -- was based on a Japanese illustrated novel (or "light novel"), it'd be pretty understandable. For one thing, the title is different. The 2004 book by Hiroshi Sakurazaka and illustrator Yoshitoshi ABe was called All You Need Is Kill. For another, the book -- as Japanese science fiction often does -- featured Japanese teenagers in the midst of a gruesome war for Earth's fate, rather than a caucasian actor in his early 50s.

Publishers of the original work, Viz Media is making a big effort to make sure you know the truth. The publisher is releasing a new manga adaptation of the novel for digital download June 17. The new version comes courtesy of Takeshi Obata, who you may know as the creator of the super-popular Death Note and Bakuman series.

(With the key difference of the lead characters in the manga being teenagers and Cruise being an ageless robot man.) That's what Edge of Tomorrow kind of looks like, at least going by the new trailer that went up today.
