Based on Hiroshi Sikurazaka's novel "All You Need is Kill", it's a true science fiction film, highly conceptual, set during the aftermath of an alien invasion. Maybe "extra-dimensional being invasion" is more accurate.
I once thought movies were just… there. One moment I’d see a trailer and know, a year from then, I’d be sitting in a dark room filled with people looking up at a big movie screen. No one explained to me that they were ‘made’, or ‘written’, or even ‘thought up’. And that’s just where we are with Star Wars Episode VII.
