    So, do they drop him in with Puxatawney Phill? Is Bill Murray doing a cameo? (sigh…) another “Tom -Cruise-running-very-fast” film.

    Tom Cruise is awesome. Any movie he does is fantastic.. He isn’t the same in every movie he truly is a great actor..

    I’m a huge SciFi fan, there’s nothing better than GOOD Scifi! I’m keeping my finger’s crossed that this will be GREAT! Cruise definitely has hit Scifi gold before with Minority Report, War of the World and Oblivion and I’m hoping this one will set the bar but it all comes down to the quality of the ALIENS! When can we see em?!?

    Tom Cruise is a has-been and box-office poison. OBLIVION was a ripped-off plot from a BETTER movie (Moon). Whatever star power Tom Cruise had 20 years ago is naught but a shadow today.

    • Right, which is why his movies almost always break even or make profit. He’s a has been, and yet the studios still throw Millions at his movie budgets, His star power is naught what it was before and yet… he still gets leading roles, can pick what he wants to do, has a say in all his movies, still does his own stunts and still commands A list actor status and salaries.. Ya not bad for a has been and Box office poison with no star power… You want to hate Tom Cruise, go ahead hate him, there are many who do hate him as a person, but as an actor, you cannot deny what he has done and still does today, and that is entertain audiences

    This is one of the Tom Cruise films I’m looking forward to when it comes to the mind-melt of this recurring time loop. OBLIVION was an underrated movie. I’m not saying it was great but good. EDGE OF TOMORROW has Doug Liman and that is a positive sign. I hope he hasn’t used he’s hand-held shaky camera style that was employed in JUMPER and FAIR GAME. MINORITY REPORT is a great sci-fi film and hopeful EOT will be up to that standard. My fingers are crossed.
