Tom Cruise's All You Need is Kill Film Closes London's Trafalgar Square
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
London's Trafalgar Square was completely closed off to the public on Sunday due to the filming of Doug Liman's live-action film adaptation of Hiroshi Sakurazaka's All You Need Is Kill novel. The film's star Tom Cruise was dropped into the well-known tourist spot from a Royal Air Force helicopter, dressed in a military uniform. Tanks were also set up in the square for filming. The Telegraph newspaper and the Just Jared film news website have both posted images from Sunday's filming.
Viz Media published Sakurazaka's novel in English to launch its Haikasoru imprint for Japanese science fiction and fantasy in 2009. The book's cover art was drawn by Yoshitoshi ABe (Serial Experiments Lain, Haibane Renmei).
The novel and film revolve around a battle-armored soldier who finds himself dying and re-incarnating over and over again. The film also stars Emily Blunt, Charlotte Riley, Kick Gurry, and Bill Paxton.
The film is scheduled to open on March 7, 2014 in 3D and in IMAX.
