Production designer Oliver Scholl has released a ton of concept art from Edge of Tomorrow. The film is based on the Japanese graphic novel, All You Need Is Kill. The artwork you see below was created by Steve Burg, Tani Kunitake, Ed Natividad, Jeff Julian, Harald Belke and many more.
Exo-Suit Designs

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.

EDGE OF TOMORROW is being directed by Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity,” “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”) from a screenplay written by Dante Harper, Christopher McQuarrie and Joby Harold, based on the novel "All You Need Is Kill" by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. The film stars: Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Jonas Armstrong (BBC’s “Robin Hood”), Tony Way, Kick Gurry, Franz Drameh, and Charlotte Riley. The film will hit theaters June 6, 2014.

Interesting. But I liked how they turned out. The aliens turned out to be more intimidating in the movie then I thought they would be.



And awesome movie btw. If you haven't seen it yet...then slap yourself, and then go see it.

I liked the aliens in the film a lot they looked awesome and they were way scarier than I thought they'd be. They were very unique in design and I loved how fast they moved they were the scariest aliens I've seen since the Xenomorph IMO.

I loved the one they went with, the big blue one gave me the creeps, when it just turned its head and noticed he was alive and just ran at him

Final movie version of aliens is much-much better than all of this.

Would you like a Matrix squid, an ID4 or a Transformer? Those are your alien options these days.

I like what we got in the final product, but I wouldn't mind a movie based around that first picture..so cool.

Some of these are pretty sweet as well. Glad to see I'm not the only one who was pleased with how terrifying and truly alien the movie version looked.
