I was already looking forward to Edge of Tomorrow, but now I can’t wait because the buzz has been ecstatic. Since it’s not based on well-known material (the source is the novel All You Need Is Kill), it was flying under the radar in a summer packed with sequels and name properties. But I’m glad to hear that the movie is good because it’s got a cool concept: Groundhog Day with mech suits. I’m in.
I’m pleased the announce we’re giving away 25 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of Edge of Tomorrow. Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free.

Here’s the official synopsis for Edge of Tomorrow:
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.
Major William 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.
