Formerly known as All You Need is Kill, Edge of Tomorrow is now graced with a released trailer that shows many scenes of intense action and looks like Elysium but with an army in the same robotic costume. I am also remembering an earlier Tom Cruise movie, Vanilla Sky which Cruise starred in a crazy story that was really unexpected. In the trailer Emily Blunt tells Tom Cruise to come find her when he wakes up, then she blows up in a massive explosion and you see Cruise on the floor waking up. I am really not sure how to call this one; do you think Edge of Tomorrow is a promising 2014 movie? Look for Edge of Tomorrow in theaters this upcoming June 6, 2014.
Oscar® nominee Tom Cruise (the “Mission: Impossible” films, “Collateral,” “Jerry Maguire”) and Emily Blunt (“The Devil Wears Prada,” “The Adjustment Bureau”) star in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ sci-fi thriller “Edge of Tomorrow,” under the direction of Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity,” “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”).
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 (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 (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.
Synopsis:A military officer is brought into an alien war against an extraterrestrial enemy who can reset the day and know the future. When this officer is enabled with the same power, he teams up with a Special Forces warrior to try and end the war.
