Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise & Emily Blunt. The film is based on Hiroshi Sakurazakawill’s acclaimed novel All You Need Is Kill (much better title) and centers on a soldier fighting in a war with aliens who finds himself caught in a time loop of his last day in the battle. Bill Paxton & Jeremy Piven also stars. Edge of Tomorrow opens on 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 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.
