Sadly, audiences didn't head to theaters in greater numbers to see Edge of Tomorrow (or Live Die Repeat as it's now known on home video). It's a shame, because the Tom Cruise vehicle proved to be far more entertaining the even the trailers led on, and it's a fantastic and fun sci-fi action adventure. And if you're just now stumbling upon the greatness that is Edge of Tomorrow, perhaps you'd like to know more about the visual effects. Thankfully, Academy Originals just released a new installment that looks at how the final sequence in Paris was created, mostly with visual effects, and it's an impressive look behind the scenes.
Here's the Academy Originals latest Behind the Scene of 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. released Edge of Tomorrow, now Live Die Repeat, in theaters and now it's available on Digital Download.
