Emily Blunt Gets Her Own Badass Sci-Fi 'Edge of Tomorrow' Poster

Meet the "Full Metal Bitch". Warner Bros has debuted another poster for Doug Liman's upcoming time loop sci-fi Edge of Tomorrow to compliment the first mech suit poster prior to Comic-Con earlier this week. This time the poster shows Emily Blunt as Rita Vrataski in her futuristic mech suit, another soldier Cruise encounters when he relives the same day over and over fighting aliens. During the Comic-Con panel, Cruise revealed that the soldiers call her the "Full Metal Bitch" - and she looks badass. The footage we saw looked exciting and visually like Halo, with a sleek futuristic feel. I love the tagline: Live, Die, Repeat. Bring it on!
Here's the new poster, debuted to go along with the big Comic-Con footage reveal (which looked awesome):
Update! And now Tom Cruise gets his own version of this poster, too. Added below via their Facebook:

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. 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.

Yep. And she has the blade--the character uses it in the novel. ....I still wish they hadn't changed the title though--I really do like ALL YOU NEED IS KILL more. I guess some people would complain that it's mocking the Beatles....

I don't think I've met a single person who didn't like that name. Except for maybe MattPeloquin above

True...of course, it won't be the first time a film has changed it's name from the original source material--see the first two film versions of the novel I AM LEGEND, for instance; the first one was THE LAST MAN ON EARTH and the second was THE OMEGA MAN.

Stupid name that's grammatically flawed.

With a name like "All You Need is Kill" I would have seen the movie no matter what, now... not so much.

I never thought that name made any sense so I'm glad they changed it.

It's simple man, out of all the things you could need 'kill' is at the top.
axalon on Jul 20, 2013
It doesn't make any sense from a grammatical point-of-view. "All you need is the ability to kill", "All you need is murder" would be correct, but not "All you need is kill".

"Full Metal Bitch" sounds like it is from KICKASS.

That poster sucks. That character is about steel eyed determination, but the poster makes her look defeated. Girls wanna see girl power, guys want to see that typed body. Gritted teeth and flexing triceps would have been a much better sell. This was a very good movie that flopped because of bad marketing decisions like this.
