Fresh off this morning’s behind-the-scenes featurette, Warner Bros. has released a fantastic new Edge of Tomorrow trailer for director Doug Liman’s upcoming sci-fi actioner. Tom Cruise plays a military officer who keeps being killed during a doomed combat mission to take down a hive-like alien race, only to wake up and relive the same day over and over again. In order to perhaps change his fate and save humanity, he works with a Special Forces warrior (Emily Blunt) to train himself to become a better soldier. The premise itself is fascinating enough, but this trailer shows more of the relationship between Cruise’s cowardly character and Blunt’s warrior as the two are in training, and it looks incredibly promising. I also really like the aesthetic that Liman has settled on for the film, and the set pieces look absolutely thrilling.
Hit the jump to watch the new Edge of Tomorrow trailer. The film also stars Bill Paxton, Brendan Gleeson, Noah Taylor, Kick Gurry, Dragomir Mrsic, Charlotte Riely, Jonas Armstrong, Franz Drameh, Masayoshi Haneda, and Tony Way. Edge of Tomorrow opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on June 6th.

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.
