edge of tomorrow wondercon panel recap

It’s mid-April – which means it’s time for a slew of articles covering Anaheim’s WonderCon: aka the mini, nicer, friendlier Comic-Con. I’ll be recapping all the ‘bigger’ panels of the day from Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Universal and Sony Pictures hopefully in a moderately timely manner.

First up for the day, Warner Brothers previewed their upcoming slate of features starting with Edge Of Tomorrow, the Tom Cruise/Emily BluntGroundhog Day meets [insert-your-alien-invasion-film-of-choice-here] mash-up.” Co-star Bill Paxton was on hand to preview some exclusive footage from the upcoming sci-fi flick and offer insight into its making. For a recap of the footage (hint: there were a lot of explosions), hit the jump.

First TV Spot for EDGE OF TOMORROW Starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt

by     Posted 6 days ago

Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow have released the first TV spot for Doug Liman’s sci-fi action film 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.   Since it looks like Cruise’s character will be dying many times, not all of the deaths are going to be super-heroic, and a couple of those less-than-prestigious fatalities are shown here.

Hit the jump to check out the Edge of Tomorrow TV spot.  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.

TOP 5: CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, First Trailer for LUCY, 22 JUMP STREET Set Visit, THE EXPENDABLES 3 Teaser, Our Most Anticipated Movies

by     Posted 15 days ago

Given the near universal praise it has received, I doubt that one more voice in its corner will persuade you to check out Captain America: The Winter Soldier this weekend if you weren’t already planning on it (especially when that “one voice” belongs to yours truly). Still yet, that fact won’t prevent me from gushing about it in these next few sentences. The Winter Soldier is fantastic. The action, humor, performances, and storytelling are all on point and work seamlessly together to create what is instantly one of my favorite Marvel movies and, more impressively, a really good film in general. It joins The Avengers on the short list of Marvel movies that I can see myself revisiting outside of canon just to enjoy again as a singular experience. While I believe a healthy dose of skepticism should be retained until you see it for yourself, I feel comfortable in saying that you can believe the hype surrounding The Winter Soldier.

In addition to me continuing to high-five the new Cap film, this week’s Top 5 also features the first trailer for director Luc Besson‘s Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson, our 22 Jump Street set visit coverage, the first teaser trailer for The Expendables 3, and a look at our most anticipated films from April to June. Keep reading for a brief recap and link to each of the above.

The first quarter of 2014 had a good handful of movies that lived up to our expectations including The LEGO Movie, The Raid 2, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and more.  Now we’re at Q2, so it’s time for the blockbusters.  Summer has arrived even earlier than usual with Captain America: The Winter Soldier leading off April, and there are plenty of other sequels headed our way.  There are three sequels on all three of our lists, and while it’s easy to be excited when you have a good idea of what came before, there are also some fresh movies (or at least non-sequels) in the bunch.

Once again, Adam, Dave, and Matt have each compiled a Top 5 list of most-anticipated movies for the next three months.  Hit the jump to find out what they can’t wait to see and why.

New Trailer for EDGE OF TOMORROW Starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt

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.

Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow have released a trailer teaser for Edge of Tomorrow.  Based off a manga with a superior title (All You Need Is Kill), 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.  Or to put it another way: Groundhog Day with mech-suits.  I can get on board with that.

It’s no secret that 2015 is going to be a sort of moviepocalypse with regards to its sheer magnitude of massive films, but right now we’ve still got 2014 to look forward to.  There are plenty of exciting large-scale films on tap for the coming year ranging from sequels to reboots to (gasp!) original properties.  Inevitably some will be great and some will be disappointing, but right now we’re full of optimism, and we’ve put together a list of 25 promising blockbusters set to be released in the next 12 months.  Read on after the jump.

First Trailer and New Poster for EDGE OF TOMORROW Starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt [Updated]

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for director Doug Liman’s 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.  The film is essentially a sci-fi version of Groundhog Day, and judging by this first trailer Liman looks to have put together an intense and thrilling spin on a fascinating premise.  Though there are obviously plenty of CGI effects involved, the aesthetic has a more grounded and realistic nature to it, which is encouraging.  Moreover, it’s great to see a female lead that’s much more than a damsel in distress or simple love interest.

Two New Images from EDGE OF TOMORROW Starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt

by     Posted 131 days ago

edge-of-tomorrow-tom-cruise-lo-res-slice

Warner Bros. has released two new images from Doug Liman‘s upcoming sci-fi action flick, 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 then 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.  Yesterday, we got some viral images and tomorrow we’ll get the trailer, but for now USA Today (which debuted the images) focuses on the exosuits.  The suits weighed about 85 pounds, and at one point Cruise had to sprint with a suit that weighed in at 130 because it had a sniper rifle and a missile launcher.  Cruise said it was “physically grueling” except he’s 51 and looks maybe 40, and I have no pity for people who have access to the fountain of youth.  I imagine he keeps it next to a portrait of him getting older.

Viral Campaign Releases New Images for EDGE OF TOMORROW Starring Tom Cruise; First Trailer Debuts Wednesday

by     Posted 132 days ago

edge-of-tomorrow-viral-slice

Earlier today, Warner Bros. was promoting Godzilla via a viral marketing campaign.  It looks like they’re also using the same strategy for their action movie, 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 then 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.  The images are coming from the Twitter feed @EmbeddedUDF, and they’re somewhat low-quality, probably to stick with viral campaign’s alternate reality.  Maybe we’ll get some higher quality images when the first trailer is released on Wednesday.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film also stars Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton and Jeremy PivenEdge of Tomorrow opens June 6, 2014.

Comic-Con: EDGE OF TOMORROW Panel Recap; Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, and More Present First Trailer

by     Posted 274 days ago

comic con edge of tomorrow slice

Once I get over my bitterness of the title change from All You Need Is Kill to the tamer but more descriptive Edge of Tomorrow, I think it could be an incredibly entertaining sci-fi action film.  It’s been described to me as “Groundhog Day meets Starship Troopers”, and the footage we saw definitely conveyed that.  Also, mech suits make everything better.  Just imagine how much better Terms of Endearment would have been with mech suits.

Hit the jump for my recap of the panel.  Edge of Tomorrow opens June 6, 2014.
