Edge of Tomorrow Trailer

"Come find me when you wake up!" Warner Bros has unleashed the first teaser trailer for the sci-fi time loop movie Edge of Tomorrow, formerly known as All You Need is Kill, starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. Taking place in the distant future during war between a race of aliens called Mimics and the human race, the movie involves Cruise being caught in a time loop, having to fight the same battle over and over. We got our first glimpse of this at Comic-Con, but this trailer is packed with gritty war action and it looks damn good. Bill Paxton and Jeremy Piven are in this too, but the story and action are the stars.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow, originally from Apple:

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. Follow updates on the viral Twitter account @EmbeddedUDF, posting as an embedded soldier in the war.

Somehow... This film became one of my most anticipated for next year. Seriously... Tom is in Cruise control.

I see what you did there.

crystaltowers on Dec 11, 2013


I'm actually impressed. It looks like a good time. Which is funny considering I hate Tom Cruise.

Nathan Williams on Dec 11, 2013


Hmm... it looks interesting. But it didn't "wow" me. I hope they have a better trailer. I'm a sucker for these sci-fi flix anyway.

Qrious on Dec 11, 2013


Wow, this looks great. But then again, so did Oblivion. Look forward to finding out.

Guy who comments on things on Dec 11, 2013


I enjoyed Oblivion, for a SFX flick. Looks like this one will be at least as impressive w/ the visuals.

VAharleywitch on Dec 11, 2013


I loved Oblivion. No "but..." about it, and no "only for the visuals" crap either. Oblivion was gorgeous, exciting, memorable and atmospheric.

crystaltowers on Dec 11, 2013


I must admit I watched it with some chatty company and we were all under the influence of alcohol. Maybe I'll give it another looking someday. Seemed a little too similar to "Moon" to me though at the base. If you haven't seen that movie, check it out.

Guy who comments on things on Dec 12, 2013


It looks very interesting, and I love Tom, but I can't help but wish they'd left a little more to the imagination and been a bit more 'teasery'.

Source code meets total recall? I like! 🙂

Joel nilsson on Dec 11, 2013


It's Not Sequel or Prequel. Just Pure ORIGINAL SciFi Action. BRAVO

Ehsan Davodi on Dec 11, 2013


It's not original. It's an adaptation of the Japanese book "All You Need Is Kill" — It would have been nice to see some Asian actors for a change. After all, this is a Japanese book.

rozekel on Dec 11, 2013


Um... Tom Cruise is the average height of a Japanese male. Does that count?

redtie on Dec 11, 2013


I knew that dude , i'm talking about originality in movie territories. Not Mangas or Comics or Even Books. I said sequels & prequels. But Excuse For Fuzz Anyway.

Ehsan Davodi on Dec 11, 2013


based on a manga

me on Dec 11, 2013


Based on a _novel_...but there will be a manga starting in January, so you did get that right!

Scopedog on Dec 11, 2013


I guess Tom Cruise runs a lot in this movie too...

TheOct8pus on Dec 11, 2013


Groundhog's Day with guns and aliens. I'm in. They must have used the same guys for the music as the Battle LA trailer.

David Diaz on Dec 11, 2013


First time he got back I thought terminator in reverse, John Connor sent in past, but it doesn't apperar to be the case. Music is not the best tho.

Armitall on Dec 11, 2013


What is that AWFUL song?

Chiroptera Exsanguination on Dec 11, 2013


Wow... Totally sold.

Nash on Dec 11, 2013


I've never seen a bad movie of Tom Cruise but this trailer doesn't work for me! But I will certainly will watch it because I like sci-fi flicks!

Avi on Dec 11, 2013


Seemed a bit long for a "teaser" trailer

Luke Hanna on Dec 11, 2013


Ah cool time travel meets scifi. No cheesy CGI (From the looks of it) and some 'we all know' Cruise will run down. I just wish these trailer editors would get a grip. Terrible music.

Buzzfunk on Dec 11, 2013


Yeah, baby! This looks cool! Finaly something original! Thank you hollywood! This got me really excited, hope it delivers.

Armitall on Dec 11, 2013


Looks worth a ticket. I'm impressed that they utilized actual rigs w/ weight, and worked the stunts around said weight & mobility limits. I can respect that effort.

VAharleywitch on Dec 11, 2013


Agreed. And from the reports, those things were heavy....

Scopedog on Dec 11, 2013


Would have been better without Tom Cruise, something about him just doesn't fit this movie well.

Charlie Hard on Dec 11, 2013


Funny you say that, because the original script revolved around a 20 year old kid who gets this power. They did massive rewrites after Cruise came aboard.

axalon on Dec 11, 2013


Soldiers sacrificed en masse to a senseless, unwinnable war + the "waking up from a dream to discover reality" journey. We've seen both stories many times. But combined together here, it looks quite effective. Huge action and future tech, but also deep introspection and internal struggle. Also, Emily Blunt looks convincingly tough. Love her.

crystaltowers on Dec 11, 2013


Plus it's also based on a pretty good science fiction novel--one that handled those tropes very well, in my view.

Scopedog on Dec 11, 2013


No matter how crazy Tom maybe the man can act. His sci-fi films aren't always my favorites but this movies has a little bit of everything. I thought it was just another action packed futuristic war movie. I had no clue it involved what looks like time travel. I always like those kind of scenarios because its always interesting to see how the story plays out.

blkstar on Dec 11, 2013


Agreed except I thought Oblivion was just terrible...

Buzzfunk on Dec 11, 2013


I just thought it fell short.

OfficialJab on Dec 11, 2013


I agree.

Such heroic nonsense on Dec 12, 2013


I thought that although the plot was disappointing, the visuals and general atmosphere of Oblivion were rather stunning and intriguing. I paid 15 Euro for the Oblivion DVD and do not regret it.

Nash on Dec 12, 2013


If you told me that your Warhammer 40K Space Marine miniature would one day be played by Tom Cruise... I would scoff. Today... I retract said scoff.

lewinston on Dec 11, 2013


Armor by John Steakley and Replay by Ken Grimwood. Edge of Tomorrow.

jstockton858 on Dec 11, 2013


Or, ALL YOU NEED IS KILL by Hiroshi Sakurazaka...which is the source novel for this film. (Don't get me wrong though--loved ARMOR, and thought REPLAY was a great read. Don't know if Sakurazaka ever read those books though, before he wrote this back in 2004)

Scopedog on Dec 11, 2013


based on the synopsis...this takes place in the future? based on that helicopter and the cars in the teaser I think not.......unless everything is just a dream.....

desispeed on Dec 11, 2013


That would mean there is another Source Code coming our way. But something tells me this is not going to look like that. Maybe they manage to travel back in time. Or maybe there is a reason why some of todays cars are still used in the future. In the trailer it looks like someone (Cruise?) in a mech suit is facing off against a car that would fit in todays streets...

Nash on Dec 12, 2013


I dont understand how people dislike Tom Cruise. I love everything he is in... He might be a little wacky but he is a solid actor and does a great job picking the movies he's in. This does remind me of Groundhog's Day, but this does looks like a great movie.

Franklin Carpio on Dec 11, 2013


Exactly. People almost feel like 'someone owes them something" because a certain actor throws a tantrum or has a diff opinion about things. Personally, i grew up with his movies. I dont care about his Scientology crap or if he is gay. Hes been always solid. The MI movies are a blast and older movies like color of money are still the best!

Buzzfunk on Dec 11, 2013


Yup. Rain Man also is top of the bill. Cruise is a weird dude but man, he made some great movies the past 30 years. That's what matters.

Nash on Dec 12, 2013


Looks like tons of fun! Tom Cruise always delivers in one way or another.

DAVIDPD on Dec 11, 2013


Groundhog Day meets Gears of War!!! I'm in!!

theslayer5150 on Dec 11, 2013


Haha Groundhog day!!! One of the best movies ever!!!

Buzzfunk on Dec 11, 2013


I see no GOW references.

Xerxexx on Dec 11, 2013


i think its just the way they look in the mec suits gives them a gow look i thought the same thing

angel figueroa on Dec 12, 2013


Gears of What? where?

conradthegreat on Dec 16, 2013


On another note, how the fuck does he not age? Sure maybe a few more wrinkles but geeez hes how old?? 51!!!

Buzzfunk on Dec 11, 2013


He pays the space lizard to keep him young.

Brian Sleider on Dec 11, 2013


He somehow got into Liam Neeson's stash.

Such heroic nonsense on Dec 12, 2013


The trailer looks interesting; but the new title is a snooze fest.

DaveLister_JMC on Dec 11, 2013


This looks amazing! The king of sci fi is back!! Go Cruise!

rage72 on Dec 11, 2013


I always love a good Tom Cruise Sci fi, I'm in.

IamSlave on Dec 11, 2013


No matter what Tom Cruise does in his personal life... sounds like a complete mental case but the dude can pick movies and act.. I love me a good time travel loop movie.... Looper meets Groundhog Day meets Halo. Looks freaking awesome..... Emily Blunt is getting better and better at picking the right movies to be in. She looks kick ass in this.

jimfromtoto on Dec 11, 2013


even if the movie tanks, you know Tom Cruise gave 100%. just look at his face when he runs, goddamn, he looks like he's gonna pop blood vessel.

RectumRaider on Dec 11, 2013


slightly dated (I'm sure he did some running in Oblivion), but relevant...

avconsumer2 on Dec 12, 2013


Cruise is not so bad as a runner...

Nash on Dec 12, 2013


lol - true dat. I'd forgotten Mr. Seagal runs funny. It's the arms!

avconsumer2 on Dec 12, 2013


Yup. But then again, mr. Seagal can kick ass like no one else can...

Nash on Dec 12, 2013


Dig it, love me some Cruise. This looks damned exciting!

grimjob on Dec 11, 2013


What is it with Tom Cruise and aliens? Oh...

cobrazombie on Dec 12, 2013


This guy can still bang out some good movies with good story lines. I'm in!

Such heroic nonsense on Dec 12, 2013



l.21 on Dec 12, 2013


I kinda understand why they changed the title, I think if at the end of that it had come up saying 'All You Need Is Kill' I would have just laughed the whole thing off afterward. Edge of Tomorrow feels kinda plain, but is at least a bit descriptive of the story.

OfficialJab on Dec 12, 2013


What is the song that plays during the trailer?

Eric Wilson on Dec 13, 2013


Ya, its very similar to the one in the trailer of Battle for Los Angeles.

Dhiram on Dec 14, 2013


When I heard that Cruise is doing two scifi movies allmous back-to-back I was stoked. I liked oblivion but it was missing something, hopefully this will deliver. One of my ''must watch'' in next year. Also liking the trailer, not showing too much of the story and action.

ProjectionistHP on Dec 14, 2013


And at least this one has decent co-actress compaired to Oblivion.

ProjectionistHP on Dec 14, 2013


who is this Tom Cruise person everyone keep talking about?
