Find out all about director Doug Liman’s “Edge of Tomorrow” (aka the sci-fi “Groundhog Day”) in seven featurettes that get into everything from Tom Cruise’s character to Emily Blunt’s to all the supporting players, including a guy who doesn’t wear underoos when he suits up to fight. I guess you can say when he goes commando, he really goes commando. Ahem.
I used to be peeved that they took the original book and drastically altered it, but I have to say, the more I see of the movie, the more glad I am that I won’t know what’s coming. Movies are so predictable these days anyway, at least I’ll be in the dark for this one! (Well, mostly, anyway.)
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.
Starring Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Noah Taylor, Kick Gurry, Dragomir Mrsic, Charlotte Riley, Jonas Armstrong, Franz Drameh, Masayoshi Haneda, and Tony Way.
