Edge of Tomorrow Trailer

"Come find me when you wake up!" Warner Bros has unleashed the first teaser trailer for the sci-fi time loop movie Edge of Tomorrow, formerly known as All You Need is Kill, starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. Taking place in the distant future during war between a race of aliens called Mimics and the human race, the movie involves Cruise being caught in a time loop, having to fight the same battle over and over. We got our first glimpse of this at Comic-Con, but this trailer is packed with gritty war action and it looks damn good. Bill Paxton and Jeremy Piven are in this too, but the story and action are the stars.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow, originally from Apple:

Edge of Tomorrow is set in the distant future during war between a race of aliens called Mimics and the human race. A soldier fighting in a war with aliens finds himself caught in a time loop of his last day in the battle, though he becomes better skilled along the way. Tom Cruise plays Lt. Col. Bill Cage, an untrained and ill-equipped officer who is dropped "into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission," but gets stuck in a time loop on the same mission. Doug Liman (Go, Bourne Identity, Jumper) is directing. Warner Bros will release Edge of Tomorrow, formerly All You Need is Kill, in theaters everywhere June 6th next year. Follow updates on the viral Twitter account @EmbeddedUDF, posting as an embedded soldier in the war.

    Somehow... This film became one of my most anticipated for next year. Seriously... Tom is in Cruise control.
    • crystaltowers
      I see what you did there.
  • Nathan Williams
    I'm actually impressed. It looks like a good time. Which is funny considering I hate Tom Cruise.
  • Qrious
    Hmm... it looks interesting. But it didn't "wow" me. I hope they have a better trailer. I'm a sucker for these sci-fi flix anyway.
  • Guy who comments on things
    Wow, this looks great. But then again, so did Oblivion. Look forward to finding out.
    • VAharleywitch
      I enjoyed Oblivion, for a SFX flick. Looks like this one will be at least as impressive w/ the visuals.
    • crystaltowers
      I loved Oblivion. No "but..." about it, and no "only for the visuals" crap either. Oblivion was gorgeous, exciting, memorable and atmospheric.
      • Guy who comments on things
        I must admit I watched it with some chatty company and we were all under the influence of alcohol. Maybe I'll give it another looking someday. Seemed a little too similar to "Moon" to me though at the base. If you haven't seen that movie, check it out.
  • Payne by name
    It looks very interesting, and I love Tom, but I can't help but wish they'd left a little more to the imagination and been a bit more 'teasery'.
  • Alex
    Groundhog Troopers.
  • Joel nilsson
    Source code meets total recall? I like! :)
  • Ehsan Davodi
    It's Not Sequel or Prequel. Just Pure ORIGINAL SciFi Action. BRAVO
    • rozekel
      It's not original. It's an adaptation of the Japanese book "All You Need Is Kill" — It would have been nice to see some Asian actors for a change. After all, this is a Japanese book.
      • redtie
        Um... Tom Cruise is the average height of a Japanese male. Does that count?
      • Ehsan Davodi
        I knew that dude , i'm talking about originality in movie territories. Not Mangas or Comics or Even Books. I said sequels & prequels. But Excuse For Fuzz Anyway.
    • me
      based on a manga
      • Scopedog
        Based on a _novel_...but there will be a manga starting in January, so you did get that right!
  • TheOct8pus
    I guess Tom Cruise runs a lot in this movie too...
  • David Diaz
    Groundhog's Day with guns and aliens. I'm in. They must have used the same guys for the music as the Battle LA trailer.
    • Armitall
      First time he got back I thought terminator in reverse, John Connor sent in past, but it doesn't apperar to be the case. Music is not the best tho.
  • Chiroptera Exsanguination
    What is that AWFUL song?
  • Nash
    Wow... Totally sold.
  • Avi
    I've never seen a bad movie of Tom Cruise but this trailer doesn't work for me! But I will certainly will watch it because I like sci-fi flicks!
  • Luke Hanna
    Seemed a bit long for a "teaser" trailer
  • Buzzfunk
    Ah cool time travel meets scifi. No cheesy CGI (From the looks of it) and some 'we all know' Cruise will run down. I just wish these trailer editors would get a grip. Terrible music.
  • Armitall
    Yeah, baby! This looks cool! Finaly something original! Thank you hollywood! This got me really excited, hope it delivers.
  • VAharleywitch
    Looks worth a ticket. I'm impressed that they utilized actual rigs w/ weight, and worked the stunts around said weight & mobility limits. I can respect that effort.
    • Scopedog
      Agreed. And from the reports, those things were heavy....
  • Charlie Hard
    Would have been better without Tom Cruise, something about him just doesn't fit this movie well.
    • axalon
      Funny you say that, because the original script revolved around a 20 year old kid who gets this power. They did massive rewrites after Cruise came aboard.
  • crystaltowers
    Soldiers sacrificed en masse to a senseless, unwinnable war + the "waking up from a dream to discover reality" journey. We've seen both stories many times. But combined together here, it looks quite effective. Huge action and future tech, but also deep introspection and internal struggle. Also, Emily Blunt looks convincingly tough. Love her.
    • Scopedog
      Plus it's also based on a pretty good science fiction novel--one that handled those tropes very well, in my view.
  • blkstar
    No matter how crazy Tom maybe the man can act. His sci-fi films aren't always my favorites but this movies has a little bit of everything. I thought it was just another action packed futuristic war movie. I had no clue it involved what looks like time travel. I always like those kind of scenarios because its always interesting to see how the story plays out.
    • Buzzfunk
      Agreed except I thought Oblivion was just terrible...
      • OfficialJab
        I just thought it fell short.
        • Such heroic nonsense
          I agree.
      • Nash
        I thought that although the plot was disappointing, the visuals and general atmosphere of Oblivion were rather stunning and intriguing. I paid 15 Euro for the Oblivion DVD and do not regret it.
  • lewinston
    If you told me that your Warhammer 40K Space Marine miniature would one day be played by Tom Cruise... I would scoff. Today... I retract said scoff.
  • jstockton858
    Armor by John Steakley and Replay by Ken Grimwood. Edge of Tomorrow.
    • Scopedog
      Or, ALL YOU NEED IS KILL by Hiroshi Sakurazaka...which is the source novel for this film. (Don't get me wrong though--loved ARMOR, and thought REPLAY was a great read. Don't know if Sakurazaka ever read those books though, before he wrote this back in 2004)
  • desispeed
    based on the synopsis...this takes place in the future? based on that helicopter and the cars in the teaser I think not.......unless everything is just a dream.....
    • Nash
      That would mean there is another Source Code coming our way. But something tells me this is not going to look like that. Maybe they manage to travel back in time. Or maybe there is a reason why some of todays cars are still used in the future. In the trailer it looks like someone (Cruise?) in a mech suit is facing off against a car that would fit in todays streets...
  • Franklin Carpio
    I dont understand how people dislike Tom Cruise. I love everything he is in... He might be a little wacky but he is a solid actor and does a great job picking the movies he's in. This does remind me of Groundhog's Day, but this does looks like a great movie.
    • Buzzfunk
      Exactly. People almost feel like 'someone owes them something" because a certain actor throws a tantrum or has a diff opinion about things. Personally, i grew up with his movies. I dont care about his Scientology crap or if he is gay. Hes been always solid. The MI movies are a blast and older movies like color of money are still the best!
      • Nash
        Yup. Rain Man also is top of the bill. Cruise is a weird dude but man, he made some great movies the past 30 years. That's what matters.
    Looks like tons of fun! Tom Cruise always delivers in one way or another.
  • theslayer5150
    Groundhog Day meets Gears of War!!! I'm in!!
    • Buzzfunk
      Haha Groundhog day!!! One of the best movies ever!!!
    • Xerxexx
      I see no GOW references.
      • angel figueroa
        i think its just the way they look in the mec suits gives them a gow look i thought the same thing
    • conradthegreat
      Gears of What? where?
  • Buzzfunk
    On another note, how the fuck does he not age? Sure maybe a few more wrinkles but geeez hes how old?? 51!!!
    • Brian Sleider
      He pays the space lizard to keep him young.
    • Such heroic nonsense
      He somehow got into Liam Neeson's stash.
  • DaveLister_JMC
    The trailer looks interesting; but the new title is a snooze fest.
  • rage72
    This looks amazing! The king of sci fi is back!! Go Cruise!
  • IamSlave
    I always love a good Tom Cruise Sci fi, I'm in.
  • jimfromtoto
    No matter what Tom Cruise does in his personal life... sounds like a complete mental case but the dude can pick movies and act.. I love me a good time travel loop movie.... Looper meets Groundhog Day meets Halo. Looks freaking awesome..... Emily Blunt is getting better and better at picking the right movies to be in. She looks kick ass in this.
  • RectumRaider
    even if the movie tanks, you know Tom Cruise gave 100%. just look at his face when he runs, goddamn, he looks like he's gonna pop blood vessel.
    • avconsumer2
      slightly dated (I'm sure he did some running in Oblivion), but relevant...
      • Nash
        Cruise is not so bad as a runner...
        • avconsumer2
          lol - true dat. I'd forgotten Mr. Seagal runs funny. It's the arms!
          • Nash
            Yup. But then again, mr. Seagal can kick ass like no one else can...
  • grimjob
    Dig it, love me some Cruise. This looks damned exciting!
  • cobrazombie
    What is it with Tom Cruise and aliens? Oh...
  • Such heroic nonsense
    This guy can still bang out some good movies with good story lines. I'm in!
  • l.21
    Did NOT want to like this! CRUUUUUUUIIIIIIISSSSSE!
  • OfficialJab
    I kinda understand why they changed the title, I think if at the end of that it had come up saying 'All You Need Is Kill' I would have just laughed the whole thing off afterward. Edge of Tomorrow feels kinda plain, but is at least a bit descriptive of the story.
  • Eric Wilson
    What is the song that plays during the trailer?
    • Ya, its very similar to the one in the trailer of Battle for Los Angeles.
  • ProjectionistHP
    When I heard that Cruise is doing two scifi movies allmous back-to-back I was stoked. I liked oblivion but it was missing something, hopefully this will deliver. One of my ''must watch'' in next year. Also liking the trailer, not showing too much of the story and action.
    • ProjectionistHP
      And at least this one has decent co-actress compaired to Oblivion.
  • conradthegreat
    who is this Tom Cruise person everyone keep talking about?
