"They put out an early trailer at Comic-Con, just to get people talking about it and let them know it’s coming. But to me, it doesn’t scratch the surface. That movie’s gonna be crazy wild. [Director] Doug Liman’s sensibility and Tom Cruise. This is a guy who comes prepared for work. He’s a great ringleader. He acknowledges everybody in the cast and crew. He’s a very power-of-positive-thinking kind of guy. God, he really pumped me up. He’d go, 'I saw some dailies last night. You’re killing it, Paxton! You’re killing it!' I never go to dailies. I’d say, 'Tom, gosh, man, I’m gonna get a big head here.' But we had a great time, and the movie is super original, and it has a great humor to it. They’ve changed the title from All You Need is Kill, which we were all partial to, but I guess from a marketing point of view, it’s a PG-13 movie. And, you know, Shakespeare said it, 'A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.'"
Edge Of Tomorrow stars Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Kick Gurry, Dragomir Mrsic, Charlotte Riley, Jonas Armstrong and Franz Drameh. The film is set to hit theaters June 6th, 2014.
