The first trailer for Edge of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt is finally out. In the film, Tom Cruise plays a soldier who dies during a mission to take out an alien race. However, he wakes up to find that he is reliving his last day over and over… It’s like Groundhog’s day with aliens and guns! It sounds like I’m being dismissive, but it is looking like it could be a pretty awesome flick.
Along with Cruise and Blunt, the film also stars: Bill Paxton, Laura Pulver, and Jeremy Piven.
Edge of Tomorrow opens on June 6, 2014.
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.
