The release date for the Tom Cruise action flick All You Need is Kill has been pushed back.
The highly-anticipated movie from acclaimed director Doug Liman (Swingers, The Bourne Identity) was originally slated to hit theaters on March 7, 2014. However, the film will now arrive in cinemas on June 6, 2014.
The folks at Warner Bros., who produced the film with the help of Village Roadshow Pictures, made the announcement on Thursday. While audiences in the US will be able to check out All You Need is Kill in June, several international markets are expected to get the flick beginning May 30, 2014.
Doug Liman’s latest endeavor isn’t the only project getting a new release date. Warner Bros. also explained that 300: Rise of an Empire will also arrive in theaters a little later than expected. The sequel is now scheduled for release on March 7, 2014, which effectively fills the void left by All You Need is Kill.
The film’s plot has been described as follows:
“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 Alpha commanders. But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, with no second chances.”
This isn’t the only action movie Tom Cruise has lined up. The Oblivion star has also signed on for the next installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise. It’s currently believed that Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie will helm the project. No release date has been set.
