More Sci-Fi For Tom Cruise As He Signs On To Star In YUKIKAZE

The ever-in-demand actor is set to star in a big budget adaptation of the incredibly popular sci-fi novels by Chohel Kamayashi, which contain numerous amounts of aliens, air battles, clones and wormholes. Read on for details.

That Tom Cruise fella sure does love him some science fiction. Deadline report that the Oblivion actor has just made a deal to become attached to star in Yukikaze, a film based a series of Japanese sci-fi novels by Chohel Kamayashi -- apparently Japan’s answer to Isaac Asimov. The novels (which have also spawned various Manga and Anime series) deal with humanities's struggle against a mysterious alien force known as the JAM. Warner Bros will finance and distribute, and the film will be produced by 3 Arts’ Erwin Stoff and Tom Lassally.

Space Groundhog day:

"The storyline puts a Groundhog Day plot device into a futuristic alien-invasion storyline. A raw recruit, pressed into battle against an alien species, gets killed in action. But he is reborn each day to suffer the same fate. Eventually, he notices that he is becoming a better warrior and that other circumstances are changing, which might be the key to altering the outcome".

I think Cruise signs up for so much Sci-Fi because.... well.... you know. Because of his beliefs 'n' all.
Seriously because he is Vogon level 9 or whatever the hell its called (lol).
The spaceship really IS coming for him dont'cha know. ;)

Tom Cruise should be a religion, should branch off from Scientology.

jerryblake - 4/15/2013, 5:41 PM

Gusto don't have to come out. He was there, in 1977 voting for Harvey Milk. Drinking for 5 days, when they elected him.
You should seen him. So happy

i imagine you both are sitting right now in Gusto van parked somewhere in Detroit, drinking booze, smoking crack, occasionally going outside searching for some trannies, maybe heroine dealers. Well, you can't find them on Wal Mart parking lot !!!

Ahh yes sorry my mistake. Its not actually Tom Cruise vs Aliens - Its actually Tom Cruise Vs Aliens after he's been through a wormhole (with a bunch of scientologists.... probably).


Synopsis follows - blatantly copied 'n' pasted ripped-off from another site:

"The premise sees a planetary defense force beat back an invasion of aliens using a wormhole over Antarctica, setting up bases on the alien’s planet. Yukikaze is the name of the advanced reconnaissance fighter plane the hero uses on his missions".

hide the booze. Your parents are shopping nearby.

Dammit - got the synopsis wrong again. Sorry guys, after exhaustive research.... here's the real deal:

"Around 75 million years ago Xenu, the ruler of a Galactic Confederation of 76 planets, transported billions of his charges in spaceships similar to DC-8 jets to a planet called Teegeeack (Earth). There they were placed near volcanoes and killed by exploding hydrogen bombs, after which their “thetans” (souls) remained to inhabit the bodies of future earthlings, causing humans today great spiritual harm and unhappiness that can be remedied through special techniques involving an Electropsychometer (E-meter) in a process called auditing and with a plane that looks like Firefox after a hard landing."

As I understand it, Tom Cruise has been very deeply into science fiction for over 22 years. He's even converted others.
jerryblake - 4/15/2013, 6:25 PM
shit ... just forget about the last picture ...

The Church of Scientology may want to rethink their stance against psychiatry.

More proof that Man of Steel better pull in some really great numbers. Otherwise Warner Bros. is going to go the Anime route over the comics route.

Pacific Rim (even though its not anime, its close enough), then Akira and Robotech. Now yukikaze.

Of course its Wbs fault that they keep screwing up comic movies. I just hope they at least do anime right.
