With just under two weeks until Tom Cruise gets back in action with the sci-fi blockbuster Edge of Tomorrow, it looks like Warner Bros. is sending up a bit of a hail mary for those who haven't entire picked up on the story from the previous trailers. The easiest way to describe the film is Groundhog Day or Source Code with an alien invasion. But a new 13-minute featurette led by Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt dives even deeper into the characters, the aliens, the plot, the action and just might show too much from the film and the co-stars kicking some ass and dying over and over. But the buzz has been good, so we're on board.
Here's the extended featurette for Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow from YouTube:
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 this year.
