If you ignore the tabloid antics of Tom Cruise outside of the big screen, there's no denying that the guy is a fantastic actor. Nearly every film he does is an event, and even when people thought he couldn't draw an audience anymore, he plowed through and is still on top of his game. Lately he's been on quite a sci-fi kick with Oblivion from last year, and this time he's fighting in the future again with Edge of Tomorrow. If you haven't been keeping up, it's basically Groundhog Day with an alien invasion and big ole mech suits. Cruise can somehow relive the same crucial battle in the invasion, and Emily Blunt is trying to help. Now a new TV spot is here showing off some new footage from what will hopefully be a good sci-fi flick. Watch!
Here's the new TV spot 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.
