Greetings to all readers.

For lazy ppl :3
"Tom Cruise to star in Japanese sci-fi saga Yukikaze
After success with Oblivion, the 50-year-old actor is to take on another dystopian-future tale, this time an adaptation of Chōhel Kamayashi's novels"
Yeah great.... so after giant mecha now come PLANES. Good but then aside from that i wonder if Tom Cruise really "have a place" in there, who he will cast as ? From my past experience watching Yukikaze.. I saw practically no western faced pilot. Obviously our Cruise here won't be Rei Fukai.. It's quite bizzare to imagine XD And he will not be Jack Bukhar.. His lover which by the way stayed on the ground almost all the time. Such role is obviously have little possibility considering Tom Cruise's experience with Top Gun where he rollin all over, blasting F-5 posing as MiG's with sparrows from his F-14A Tomcat.
But of course it's possible for Tom Cruise to play as Bukhar.. If other ppl is playing as Fukai. Nonetheless i see it as little possibility, American wants American look heroes afterall.
Otherwise the movie will be a "Sci-Fi" Top gun. Replacing MiG's with JAM's, kicking the tomcat out and drag in Yukikaze, Maeve and other Sci Fi Planes. Which look great but not my taste considering they have small nose radome which equates inferior radar performance (Hey.. I like Tomcat, Flankers, F-15's, F-22's, PAKFA, MiG-31 because of their Nose radome size :3) But we can deal with radar issues later, this is movie which driven by plot not how many Db's of power aperture product can be extracted from the fighter's radar aperture.
So the Yukikaze thing here would only be the planes.. rest of the storyline will be brand new as far as have no correlation at all to the novel. Which can be good, but my experience so far show that somewhat American adaptation of Japanese game and anime turns out to be downer..(Dead or Alive is one worst example)
So i wouldn't expect much from this offshoots but some nice CGI's.
Well that's all for now.
