tom cruise stars in all you need is kill, minus all that japanese-ness

This crazy-ass photo is our first look at Tom Cruise in the upcoming movie All You Need is Kill, based on the Japanese sci-fi novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka: Tom Cruise Dons a Robot Suit for Doug Liman’s 'All You Need is Kill.'

We first heard about this project two years ago, when we learned that it would be scrubbed of its Japanese-ness. Then we heard that Tom Cruise was going to star, which pretty much sealed the deal. And now, I guess this photo is the nail the coffin. No suprises, just letting you know.
