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.

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.

When last we reported on MGM’s remake of The Magnificent Seven, screenwriter Nic Pizzolatto (True Detective) was working on the script and Tom Cruise (Jack Reacher) was attached to star.  What a difference a year makes.  Cruise has reportedly left the project, which is just one of a laundry list of remakes in development by the rejuvenated studio.  All is not lost with Cruise’s departure, however, as writer-director John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side) has come onto the project to rewrite Pizzolatto’s script.  Hit the jump for more.

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.

Paramount and Tom Cruise Moving Forward with JACK REACHER Sequel Based on NEVER GO BACK

It looks like that Jack Reacher sequel might actually be coming to fruition.  Director Christopher McQuarrie’s adaptation of the popular Lee Child character was a modest success when it opened last year, grossing $218 million worldwide.  The critical response was quite positive both with regards to McQuarrie’s take on the material and Tom Cruise’s portrayal of the lead character, and fans of the film (myself included) were eager to see the franchise take off.  Though initial reports made the prospect of a sequel coming to fruition seem unlikely, the film’s box office push over the $200 million mark forced Paramount and Skydance Productions to reconsider.  And reconsider they did, as the studios are now actively developing a follow-up based on another one of Child’s novels.  Hit the jump for more.

Tom Cruise Seeking Jack Nicholson for Comedy EL PRESIDENTE; Doug Liman to Direct

Things are heating up for the Warner Bros. comedy El PresidenteTom Cruise has been flirting with the project for some time, and he’s now courting an acting veteran to play a bumbling sleaze of a former U.S. President.  Cruise is wooing Jack Nicholson to sign on as his co-star in the film, going so far as to tell the actor he won’t do the project without him.  The story of El Presidente revolves around an overly committed Secret Service agent (Cruise) who is assigned to the worst former president.  When a threat is made on the ex-president’s life, the two are forced to go on the run together.  It sounds like an action comedy in the vein of Midnight Run and definitely feels like it could be a fantastic vehicle for Nicholson.

We’re now two films into the career of Joseph Kosinski, and it’s fair to say that as a visual filmmaker he’s incredible.  But when it comes to story, he doesn’t have the best eye for material, and that’s been a problem in both Tron Legacy and in his latest picture OblivionTom Cruise stars alongside Morgan Freeman and Olga Kurylenko in this story of a post-apocalyptic Earth.  My review of the Blu-ray follows after the jump. 

Christopher McQuarrie Officially Set to Direct MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5

christopher-mcquarrie-tom-cruise-mission-impossible-5

The fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise may now officially have a director.  Tom Cruise’s Jack Reacher writer/director Christopher McQuarrie has been mentioned as being in talks to take the gig for quite some time, and with Cruise recently dropping out of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in order to focus his efforts on Mission: Impossible 5, we assumed that production was poised to begin sooner rather than later.  Earlier today, McQuarrie took to Twitter with the simple message, “Mission: Accepted,” seemingly indicating that he has agreed to sign on as the director of M:I 5.

Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) was tapped to pen the script for Mission: Impossible 5 a few months ago, and Cruise is officially onboard to produce and star in the follow-up to Brad Bird’s nearly $700 million-grossing fourth installment.  Simon Pegg recently told us that his 2014 schedule would include the filming of another Mission: Impossible, so it appears that Benji will (thankfully) return as well. [Update: Paramount has confirmed McQuarrie's involvement.  Read the full press release after the jump.]

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

by     Posted 273 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.

Entertainment Weekly’s onslaught of images from upcoming movies continues with a new look at Doug Liman‘s All You Need Is KillTom Cruise stars 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. Our first official look at the film was Cruise in a mech suit, and now we see co-star Emily Blunt has a sweet suit of her own.  In a related story, Emileeid.com is reporting that the international title has been changed to Edge of Tomorrow, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the U.S. gets that title as well.  It’s almost as bland as “Oblivion”.
