Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are stuck in a science fiction time loop in Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow. The U.S. adaptation of the highly celebrated Japanese graphic novel “All You Need is Kill,” by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, is set to light up cinemas next summer. Watch the first trailer after the jump.
I’m sad that there are no groundhogs or the fact that Neil Patrick Harris isn’t a military commander with psychic powers. To see Godzilla’s awesome teaser trailer and now this trailer for Edge of Tomorrow, the 2014 summer movie seasons is looking very bright. The action and the complexity of the story is very fascinating and I hope that the mechanics of whatever it is that is happening to
Bill Murray Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt is explained and works for the film.
Everything that happens in this trailer works for me too much. The tone, the music, the emotion, the dialogue, the tagline – “LIVE. DIE. REPEAT.” – it’s all just brilliant. The action looks great, the suits of armor are unique and very Japanese like – check out the suits close up from our SDCC 2013 photo gallery – and there is a bigger picture that they are keeping hidden which is good. I am very excited to see this come out. It’s actually a sci-fi movie that Tom Cruise that doesn’t feel like it’s stealing plots from multiple different movies. So there’s that.

Here’s the official plot synopsis courtesy of Warner Bros.:
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.
Edge of Tomorrow will make its way to theaters in June 2014.
