The story unfolds in a near future in which a hive-like alien race, called Mimics, have hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, shredding great cities to rubble and leaving millions of human casualties in their wake. No army in the world can match the speed, brutality or seeming prescience of the weaponized Mimic fighters or their telepathic commanders. But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, with no second chances. Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously demoted and then dropped—untrained and ill-equipped—into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Cage is killed within minutes, managing to take an Alpha down with him. But, impossibly, he awakens back at the beginning of the same hellish day, and is forced to fight and die again…and again. Direct physical contact with the alien has thrown him into a time loop—dooming him to live out the same brutal combat over and over. But with each pass, Cage becomes tougher, smarter, and able to engage the Mimics with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt), who has lain waste to more Mimics than anyone on Earth. As Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated battle becomes an opportunity to find the key to annihilating the alien invaders and saving the Earth.

EDGE OF TOMORROW is being directed by Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity,” “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”) from a screenplay written by Dante Harper, Christopher McQuarrie and Joby Harold, based on the novel "All You Need Is Kill" by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. The film stars: Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Jonas Armstrong (BBC’s “Robin Hood”), Tony Way, Kick Gurry, Franz Drameh, and Charlotte Riley. The film will land in theaters June 6, 2014.

Urgh! Emily Blunt would have been such a better Black Widow. Scarlett is the weakest major MCU cast member and it frustrates the hell out of me.

Who is Doug Liman? Should I know of this guy's work?

@Supercat

Yeah, but probably not in prime time.

Not gonna preempt Big bang Theory reruns for shrimpy Crooz.

I really hope this does well. It looks pretty good!
And Emily deserves it.

You're so right, Emily as Black Widow would've been perfect, I feel they do try to sex up ScarJo a lot and I'm sure if Emily was in the role BW would be more Russian-spy and less American Glamour.



Emily is just a scene stealer.

Yummy Emily

I wanna roll a blunt.

yossarian - 5/20/2014, 9:51 AM
Oh. He did Swingers? I like that movie and Bourne.

lol @ Agents of SHIELD being Bill Paxton's parenthetical claim to fame
CherryBomb - 5/20/2014, 10:04 AM
I know Bill Paxton from Big Love.
Man, that show was amazing.

Damn Emily Blunt would have been awesome as Black Widow.

This movie is on its way to floptastic.

Can't wait to see the cams on Torrent.

Bill Paxton, huh? When he first popped up on AoS, I remarked that I always forget how awesome he is. Then I see him in something and think "Oh yeah, this guy's awesome," then immediately forget again. Maybe it's finally starting to stick. Game over, man!

Doug Liman directed the first Bourne, Go, and a bunch of nice-looking stupid crap. Swingers was okay, but not much of a directing showcase.

I grew up 2 blocks from Paxton.

I didn't hang with him much because he is 2 years older than me, but he was a cool guy.

He was kinda the guy in charge of any group he was with.

He was a class clown type that drove the teachers crazy.

"Urgh! Emily Blunt would have been such a better Black Widow. Scarlett is the weakest major MCU cast member"

That's undoubtedly true, but man, after seeing her arms... Wonder Woman. Godot needs that tone. But yeah, Scarlett is NOWHERE near her comic counterpart in any fashion.

Here's something I think we can all agree on: Emily Blunt is kinda suck at choosing what films she does. Am I wrong?
