2014 looks like a good year for cool escapist entertainment and sci-fi action movies from Warner Bros. Jupiter Ascending and Godzilla have some great teaser trailers, and now Warner Brothers releases the Edge of Tomorrow trailer. I had passes to see a test screening of this movie a few weeks ago but skipped it. Now I’m bummed. It looks pretty stellar. That said, I hope Cruise finds a way out of all the genre stuff and returns to drama again. He’s a hard-working and talented actor. I miss the Magnolia, Eyes Wide Shut, Jerry Maguire days.
Anyway, nice trailer here for Edge of Tomorrow. Like a sci-fi version of Groundhog Day.
Lots of things go boom.
Edge of Tomorrow stars Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Jeremy Piven and Bill Paxton. The film is directed by Doug Liman. Edge of Tomorrow is scheduled for release June 6, 2014.
The epic action of Edge of Tomorrow unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.
