Some people might crack the joke that it’s because Tom Cruise’s highly publicized religion is all science fiction that’s he’s seemingly taken up an one-man crusade recently to revitalize the genre. I’d never crack that joke, no sirree, I’m far too decent for that. What I will do is marvel at all this Cruise sci-fi goodness, especially when it comes to films that look as good as Edge of Tomorrow.
The Groundhog Day meets Aliens epic from director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr & Mrs Smith) already has one trailer out, but a new, far more action packed one has just dropped, filled with exciting previously unseen footage.
The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop, forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.
Based on the acclaimed novel “All You Need is Kill” by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.
Edge of Tomorrow stars Tom Cruise, Bill Paxton, Charlotte Riley, Dragomir Mrsic, Emily Blunt, Franz Drameh, Jonas Armstrong, Kick Gurry, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and Tony Way, and will initially be released in cinemas on June 6, 2014, followed by another release on June 6, 2014, and then again on June 6, 2014.
