Poor Tom Cruise. He looks kind of confused in these new posters for Doug Liman’s sci-fi actioner “Edge of Tomorrow.” This is a movie I’ll probably love, even though, from the looks of the trailers, they’ve altered some of the original source material. The premise is still intact, but I assumed that was the reason they bought the book in the first place — specifically for the premise. And they kept Emily Blunt’s Rita Vrataski around, even though she’s now a Brit, but that’s close enough, I guess.
Check out the four new posters, one above and three below.
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.
Also starring Bill Paxton, Noah Taylor, Kick Gurry, Dragomir Mrsic, Charlotte Riley, Jonas Armstrong, Franz Drameh, Masayoshi Haneda, and Tony Way.
Tom Cruise saves the universe (again) this June 6th.
