Release Dates For ALL YOU NEED IS KILL & 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE Pushed Back
According to Deadline, the release dates for Tom Cruise's next science-fiction/actioner, All You Need Is Kill, and the sequel to Zack Snyder's 300 are both being pushed back. Hit the jump to find out their new release dates. Do it!
Warner Bros. has decided to push back Tom Cruise's All You Need Is Kill, from March 7, 2014 to it's new release date of June 6, 2014. Which is actually a strong sign for the film as it moves into a key summer opening slot. But, the slot already has the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Interesting!
Warner Bros. also pushed 300: Rise Of An Empire from August 2, 2013 to All You Need Is Kill's original release date, March 7, 2014. If 300: Rise Of An Empire opened in August as planned they would've been pitted against Universal's 2 Guns, which stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. Seems like they dodged a bullet... or two.
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.
