Tom has just made a deal to become attached to star in’Yukikaze’ a big-scale film based on a series of Japanese sci-fi novels by Chohei Kambayashi. Warner Bros acquired the novel series and will finance and distribute. The author has been called Japan’s answer to Isaac Asimov, and the film will be produced by 3 Arts’ Erwin Stoff and Tom Lassally, who developed and produced the sci-fi film ‘All You Need Is Kill’ that Cruise starred in for Warner Bros and director Doug Liman. Viz Media’s Jason Hoffs will also be producing.

‘Yukikaze’ unfolds in the early 21st Century, three decades after the alien force JAM invaded earth through a dimensional porthole that appeared over Antarctica. While humans beat back the attack, they form a special combat force to eradicate the alien threat on its home planet.

This gets added to several other projects for Cruise. He’s working with Christopher McQuarrie on another installment of ‘Mission: Impossible’, as well as a second installment of the Lee Child novel series based on Jack Reacher that’s also being done with McQuarrie for Paramount and Skydance. In addition, he’s in talks to star for director Guy Ritchie in a Warner Bros film based on the classic TV series ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E:’.

OBLIVION_LP_COVER_HRES

Mondo, the collectible art division of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, is excited to announce the limited edition vinyl release of the Oblivion Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, featuring new music by Anthony Gonzalez of M83 and Joseph Trapanese (TRON: Uprising, The Raid: Redemption). This collaboration was an exciting project for Mondo to once again combine theirlove of film music with gorgeous custom artwork. The artwork for the vinyl album cover and interior comes from Mondo artist Kilian Eng and will be a 180 gram 2X LP in Deluxe Gatefold packaging. The Oblivion vinyl will be available for purchase on April 26 at MondoTees.com for $25 and will also be available for retail sale starting May 28.

Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the visionary director of TRON: Legacy and producers of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind. Oblivion will be released in theaters and IMAX on April 19.

Artist Kilian Eng was born 1982 in Stockholm, Sweden. His commissioned work has mostly been for the music industry creating artwork for bands around the world, including The Gaslamp Killer, Miami Horror, Lazer Sword and Tesla Boy. His visuals often connect to sci-fi and surrealist themes. Some of his greatestinspiration comes from French and Belgian artists like Moebius, Philippe Druillet and Hergé.

Discussing his work on the Mondo vinyl packaging, Kilian said, “When I was given the honor to create artwork for the Oblivion soundtrack, I wanted toconvey the feeling of a world that was left behind; a place full of traces and remnants of a civilization long gone. An environment that truly makes the person exploring it feel small is a theme I often come back to in my artwork. For the front cover I wanted to describe this in a peaceful way. The warm colors of a sunset, or sunrise, adds an air of tranquility, providing the image a nice balance against the sharp, dark silhouettes in the foreground.”
