TRAILER: Tom Cruise Stars in the Alien Invasion Thriller ‘Edge of Tomorrow’

Sci-fier set for June 6 release

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Tom Cruise’s sci-fi thriller “Edge of Tomorrow,” six months before the film opens on June 6.

The trailer highlights Cruise’s character being stuck in a time loop. Film is set in the near future when an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.

Village Roadshow co-produced the actioner.

Cruise plays 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, he finds himself thrown into a time loop where fights and dies in the same battle, but with each occurance, becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill.

Film’s cast also includes Bill Paxton, Kick Gurry, Dragomir Mrsic, Charlotte Riley, Jonas Armstrong and Franz Drameh. Dante W. Harper, Jez Butterworth, John-Henry Butterworth and Christopher McQuarrie wrote the screenplay based on the novel, “All You Need Is Kill” by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.

    Emily Blunt is in almost every clip of that trailer and you have the discourtesy to not mention her. You need to pay more attention!:)

    I’m curious! Trailer will certainly be better than the film! But a good start for Edge of Tomorrow!!!

  3. John Shea says:

    Mehdi is probably right, I hope. Apart from the ‘whole’ part. I watched the trailer three times, almost unheard of for me. Repetition is the whole point. Hypnotic, in a good way.

  4. Is this yet another Scientology themed movie from Cruise?

  5. K Gon Zales says:

    I’m there, I like Cruise and Science fiction movies!

  6. Mehdi says:

    They kind of give away the whole story in the trailer: Act 1: setting up the story and introducing the time loop, Cruise’s day in hell; Act 2: more about this mysterious woman who’s the only one to know what’s happening to our hero, Act 3: some plot twists, having probably to do with the origins of that woman and the time loop itself (and maybe the aliens); Act 4: Tom Cruise literally saves the day. Kind of like ‘Oblivion’, which btw had the same kind of actress playing Cruise’s love interest.

    I’ll see it. Looks very interesting…although I’m not a fan of Tom Cruise
