Emily Blunt, Tom Cruise, Edge of Tomorrow

Trailer Time: Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

This turns out nicely since Tom Cruise is the next actor we’ll be looking at in the Latest vs. Greatest column, so I absolutely planned that the trailer for his next movie would release today.  I control events to that level of serendipity.Previously entitled “All You Need is Kill” (no), Edge of Tomorrow stars Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt and Bill Paxton in a…well, it’s a bit tough to summarize so I’ll be extraoridnarily lazy and let the official synopsis stand:

Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to little more than 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 (Emily Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

So it’s like the Source Code Looper.  I guess.  Cruise has a pretty decent track record and very rarely does he bomb (Rock of Ages, I’m looking at you).  Check out the trailer and Edge of Tomorrow will open in theaters June 6, 2014.

  1. This sounds really cool, like Groundhog Day reimagined as an action movie. Did you know that the Norse Vikings believed that when they died and went to Valhalla, they would battle each other all day? Then in the evening they would be resurrected and their bodies would be reconstituted—all so they could fight each other again the next day. That was their idea of an eternal reward.
    I like Cruise as an actor. He doesn’t really have acting chops—he can’t project more then one emotion at once—and maybe that’s why he’s so good at playing cold or shallow characters, like in Rain Man and Collateral. But he exudes charisma, and I have to admit that I will go see a movie just because he’s in it. Jerry McGuire is one of only three romantic comedies I have ever enjoyed. And The Last Samurai might be hokey, but it’s my favorite Cruise movie.

    1. Now you can’t start the Cruise debate yet I’m still writing the damn article, man! LOL, yes I actually did know that before, but it was hammered into me when I inhaled Vikings Season One in two days last weekend. It’s on Amazon Prime for streaming and I recommend it. It’s extremely ….NORSE. Using that as a descriptor just made my afternoon.
