New [HD] Trailer for Tom Cruise’s Sci-Fi Film “Edge of Tomorrow”

Edge of Tomorrow

This latest trailer for Tom Cruise’s action-packed sci-fi film “Edge of Tomorrow” gives more insight into the plot.  With it, a ton of new footage that has us all excited about the June 6th release date.

“Edge of Tomorrow” is based on a Hiroshi Sakurazaka book ‘All You Need Is Kill’, and is directed by Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity” and “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.

Edge of Tomorrow

We can’t help but think about Bill Murray reliving one hell of a day over and over again in the classic comedy flick “Groundhog Day”.  But unlike Groundhog Day, Tom Cruise is thrust into a bloody and explosive futuristic time loop.

The movie also stars Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Kick Gurry, Dragomir Mrsic, Charlotte Riley, Jonas Armstrong, and Franz Drameh.

Happy Birthday Steve McQueen! “The King of Cool” Would Be 84 Today

Steve McQueen

Steve McQueen, one of the world’s greatest actors and the man who brought the Le Mans 24 Hours and the 1968 Ford Mustang GT390 to the silver screen, would have been 84 today.

Terence Steven McQueen was born today in 1930, in Beech Grove, Indiana, to a stunt pilot for a barnstorming flying circus, and an alleged rebellious alcoholic prostitute.  Because of this he was raised by his grandparents on a farm.  When he left the farm to be with his mother in Los Angeles, he became a victim of physical abuse by his stepfathers, thrusting him into the life of a petty criminal in and out of juvenile facilities.  He joined the Marine Corps and turned his life around.  In 1952 he began studying acting and the rest is history.

Steve McQueen passed away on November 7, 1980, in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico of cancer related to asbestos exposure.

Some neat facts about the icon…

-He was slated to play Rambo, but because of his death, it was given to Sylvester Stallone.  Can you imagine?

-Was also set to star alongside Paul Newman in ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’ but declined.  Robert Redford was given the role of Sundance and today we have the Redford’s world famous Sundance Film Festival!

-He was an avid dirt bike rider and airplane pilot – of which he owned several of each.

-He was a pallbearer at the funeral of actor Bruce Lee.

-He owned several exotic sports cars, including:

Porsche 917, Porsche 908 and Ferrari 512 race cars from the Le Mans film.  1963 Ferrari 250 Lusso Berlinetta, Jaguar D-Type XKSS, Porsche 356 Speedster, and a 1962 Cobra.

Pulp Fiction

Josh Cooley has been a storyboard artist at Pixar for over 1o years.  But in his free time, he uses his amazing drawing talents to create cartoons of famous R-rated film scenes!

Cooley combined them all and turned them into an actual “children’s” book called ‘Movies R Fun’, which came out this month.

Here is just a sample of the illustrated book…  Can you name all the films?

The Big Lebowski

Jaws

Silence Of The Lambs

VIDEO: Back To The Future’s Hoverboard! Is HUVrTech Real or Fake?

 HuvrTech

So there’s a new video currently spreading across the internet like wildfire showing an actual “Back To The Future” Hoverboard called HUVr by HUVrTech

HuvrTech

Hate to break it to ya, but sadly, this is not real.  As much as we all want that tech to be true, it’s just not possible…yet.  Plus you can see the harness pulling some of their clothes, despite the great special effects job they did.

However, this hasn’t stopped some people from thinking this is legit!  Moreover, whomever created this viral marketing scheme has some serious funds for being able to hire celebrities  such as Christopher Lloyd, Terrell Owens, Moby and Tony Hawk, including music by Best Coast and more.

Which makes us all wonder, WHY was this video created and what is the significance of the release date of December 2014.  Could there be a another “Back To The Future” sequel in the works??  Hmm.

Check out the full video here and decide for yourself…
