Edge of Tomorrow

"How many times have we been here?" Tom Cruise has to die in order to win the war. That's what the new theatrical trailer for the action-packed sci-fi flick Edge of Tomorrow tell us as Cruise is forced to relive a battle that he only survived for five minutes to begin with. But with the knowledge that he can keep reliving this single moment in the war, we're betting he'll figure out how to live a lot longer, and he just might be able to save Emily Blunt too. Maybe it's just me, but I think this movie looks cool as hell. Has a Gears of War vibe to it, and I'm always a sucker for almost any film with a Groundhog Day spin on it. Watch below!

Here's the full trailer for Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow, originally from Warner Bros. Pictures:

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

Not bad. Added to the 2014 watch list.

'All You Need is Kill' sounds so much better than 'Edge of Tommorow'. That title is so generic.

Nadir Ahmed on Mar 25, 2014


Yeah, I wish they would have kept AYNIK, but....hell, still seeing the movie. Loved the book, and if they keep a fraction of it in the film, I'll be happy. (True story, though--some people hated the title "All You Need Is Kill" because they thought it was mocking the Beatles!)

Scopedog on Mar 25, 2014


Yeah, will definitely watch the film, the trailer looks amazing, and Emily Blunt seems to be playing a proper character, not an action film bimbo or damsel in distress.

Nadir Ahmed on Mar 26, 2014


Really do need to read the book before June lol..

T. Hakeem on Mar 26, 2014


Read it. It's short--only around 200 pages, but it's a fast read and a damned good one.

Scopedog on Mar 26, 2014


Still looks good.

Johnny Neat on Mar 25, 2014


Looks great!!

Source Code???? LIKE I LOVE Tom Cruise doing SCI-FI movies but really...LOL! 🙂

Frater Iacobus on Mar 25, 2014


Not _quite_ SOURCE CODE--it's based on a book that was published years before SC was released. It goes about the whole "reset" in a different way. Now, how that's handled in the film remains to be seen. But if you can, get your hands on the book, "All You Need Is Kill". It's a short but great read.

Every sci-fi medium has taken on this plot device. STAR TREK, TNG, DS9, STARGATE SG-1, SG ATLANTIS, THE X-FILES, FARSCAPE, SLIDERS, FRINGE all had an episode wherein a character looped for many years until they realized in order to break the cycle something drastic needed to occur.

DAVIDPD on Mar 25, 2014


Yup. I think there was even an episode of DOCTOR WHO (back in the Tom Baker years) that did this....but I'm not 100% sure, so I could be wrong!

Scopedog on Mar 26, 2014


Definite must see for me. Love the premise. Sounds like somehow they've gotten a power that the aliens have.

David Diaz on Mar 25, 2014


I am actually really excited to watch this! I'm just wondering how they're going to handle the whole time travel thing. LOL So, if either of them dies, EVERYTHING is reset? or one of them has to continue on with the lives/mission in that timeline.... Aghh, Timetraaveeellll!

Ned... Ryerson. "Needlenose Ned"? "Ned the Head"? C'mon, buddy.

Respawn: The Movie

capitandelespacio on Mar 25, 2014


Its like the Matrix meets Elysium..

MisterBeasley on Mar 25, 2014


This couldn't be more Tom Cruise!

Robbie on Mar 25, 2014


Awesome! love to see Tom in running and battle

Бабак on Mar 25, 2014


I want it.

Quanah on Mar 25, 2014


This looks AMAZING!!!

SkyNet300 on Mar 25, 2014


I do really love this concept, and this is picky, but the apparent bog-standard marketing attempt is bothering me more than it usually would; the focus-group approved title change (from the much more awesome "All You Need Is Kill", to this blue/orange palette (a change from the awesome grey/red colour scheme of the earlier posters and promos)... so many unique things (in terms of marketing and promotion) could be explored in the run-in to June. But I digress... On the plus side, the rapport between Blunt & Cruise looks great. CGI looks great, and Blunt looks like such a badass!

T. Hakeem on Mar 26, 2014


Can you imagine... she was originally the front runner for playing the part of Black Widow in the Avengers series, but had to turn it down because of her contract work for Gulliver Travels. 🙁 She would have been awesome as Black Widow.

backwardsprogress on Mar 27, 2014


The Russos look like they've let more of her personality shine through in Cap 2, and I always liked Scarlett Johansson as Widow. But man, Emily Blunt would have epic!

T. Hakeem on Mar 29, 2014


Looks bad.

Guest on Mar 27, 2014


Looks bad... I want to see Tom play another role like Vincent in Collateral.
