Gritty War Photos from 'Edge of Tomorrow' Viral Twitter Before Trailer
Get ready for hell. With the first trailer for Doug Liman's sci-fi time loop movie Edge of Tomorrow, formerly known as All You Need is Kill (based on the book titled), due out in a few days this week, marketing is finally launching. The first teases we're getting are from a viral twitter acting as an embedded journalist in the European Army's United Defense Force (UDF). He's in Verdun, France posting photos and updates as "the Edge of Tomorrow war feed." There are glimpses of Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, but the trailer is what we're really waiting to see. These actually look like bits of the trailer, or a scene, that they've cut up.
Here are six of the photos tweeted by @EmbeddedUDF showing the gritty, war action in Edge of Tomorrow:
08:05 GMT Rumors about the enemy's lethal abilities are terrifying. Everyone worried whether 10k troops are enough.
08:18 GMT Teeth-rattling explosions blocks away! Soldier next to me down! Rushing to evac copter.
08:05 GMT From UDF PVT: 10k UDF soldiers against millions of invaders? How can we win? We need more soldiers.
Follow @EmbeddedUDF for more updates on the Edge of Tomorrow viral, they'll be posting info there.
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.
