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.
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.
