Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow have released a new trailer for director Doug Liman’s (Mr. and Mrs. Smith) sci-fi actioner Edge of Tomorrow.  The film stars Tom Cruise as a military officer who is killed within minutes of a doomed combat mission to take down a hive-like alien race.  He wakes up and is forced to relive the day over and over again, but it allows him to become a better soldier, and perhaps change his fate thanks to the help of a fellow officer played by Emily Blunt.  I really like the story, but it raises an important question: Is the gravity of a character’s repeated deaths cheapened by a reliance on action?  We could be looking at a case where the set pieces overshadow a strong story, but I hope that’s not the case.

Hit the jump to watch the 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 WayEdge 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.

    blunt is sexy as hell. And this movie looks like it has awesome action. The premise of the film might be hard to get a across to the average movie-goer.

      Sharpen up your act son.
      It’s time to get pointy.

  • Osiris

    This is the right way to make a trailer

  • Old Soldier

    Is it just me or do Hollywood use that song in every other trailer?
    That or some crappy remake of Mad World.

  • Faptain America

    Great trailer, I’ll be there for this. Wish the sound was louder though.

  • pinkincide

    Looks like they’re diverging pretty far from the book, mostly in good ways–EXCEPT who the HELL makes power armor that leaves the pilot so exposed? It was stupid in the 3rd Matrix movie and it’s extra stupid here.

  • ʝoe ßloggs

    Emily Blunt.
    Sweaty. Dirty. Blows stuff up.
    What’s not to like?

  • ʝoe ßloggs

    This movie will be supported by peeps who want to see Tom Cruise die repeatedly.
    Inbuilt non-genre audience.
