Tom Cruise Going Sci-Fi Again with ‘Yukikaze’
According to Deadline, Tom Cruise is sticking with science fiction for his next film, 'Yukikaze,' based on a series of novels by Japanese author Chohel Kamayashi, who has been likened to the Japanese version of Isaac Asimov.
'Yukikaze' takes place in the early 21st century, after a porthole has opened over Antarctica and allowed an invading alien race to attack. Once the people of Earth have triumphed, they send a specialized force to the aliens' home planet to eliminate any remaining threats.
'Oblivion' has already opened big overseas, earning $60 million before it even hits US theaters this weekend. It's expected to fare pretty well, considering Tom Cruise's star power (and the added talent of Morgan Freeman) -- and who doesn't love a movie where Tom Cruise is fighting and running away from aliens? It's his thing. (And Will Smith's thing, too.)
