Tomorrow, we’ll be treated to a new trailer for the upcoming Tom Cruise action flick, Edge of Tomorrow. While it is easy to poke fun at the movie as an alien invasion flick meets Groundhog’s day, so far, it looks like it could be one hell of a film.
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.
