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.

Filmmaker Denis Villeneuve is a busy guy.  Last fall saw the release of his Hugh Jackman thriller Prisoners, his head-scratching/terrifying Enemy with Jake Gyllenhaal is in theaters now, and this morning we learned that he’ll be teaming up with Amy Adams on sci-fi thriller called Story of Your Life.  However, before he delves into sci-fi, he’ll first direct a thriller called Sicario starring Emily Blunt.  Variety reports that Blunt will lead the pic as an officer from Tuscon who travels across the border to Mexico with a pair of mercenaries in order to track down a drug lord.  That’s a promising premise with Villeneuve attached to direct, but what’s most exciting about the project is that it’s a female-led thriller with an incredibly talented actress in the lead role.

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.

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

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.

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

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.
