Tom Cruise jumps on another sci-fi project with Chohel Kamayashi's Yukikaze

04.15.2013

Did you think that after OBLIVION that Tom Cruise would take a break from the sci-fi genre? If so, you couldn't be more wrong.

Cruise is attached to star in YUKIKAZE, an adaptation of a series of Japanese novels by Chohel Kamayashi for Warner Bros. The five novels were turned into a direct to video anime series in 2002 by Bandai Visual and Gonzo. At first the name didn't ring a bell, but when I went to search images I immediately remembered the series. It was one of those that I wanted to watch, then ended up watching RANMA 1/2. Don't ask how I made that decision.

The story centers on, "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."

Be sure to go check out OBLIVION this weekend when it drops on the 19th. Can't wait to see Cruise in another sci-fi adventure!

Tom Cruise can pull off any genre & at this stage in his career it seems sci-fi is the the way to go, although we know he can still pull off a damn good action film. He has done it before with Minority Report & even War of the Worlds.

I like this Sci-Fi side of Cruise. The guys knows how to pick his Sci-Films with Oblivion, All You Need Is Kill, and now this.

I believe Cruise knows what he's doing, but that statement is premature to say the least.

Exactly what I was thinking. While I believe ill personally enjoy Oblivion. The reviews from critics and fans have been mixed to say the least and All you need is kill is still a year away. Quite premature indeed to say he knows how to pick his sci-fi.

You mean Minority Report, even Vanilla Sky. War of the worlds ain't bad, but not great. Those you mentioned, here is to hoping they will be good!
