The film, which was based on the Japanese sci-fi novel All You Need Is Kill, starred superstar Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible) as Major William Cage & Emily Blunt (The Adjustment Bureau) as Rita Vrataski (aka the Full Metal Bitch; Angel of Verdun). It will arrive on Blu-ray/DVD combo packs October 7th.
The film holds a 90% fresh rating on review aggregator RottenTomatoes and showed some real legs this summer in grossing over $360 million worldwide.

On The Edge With Doug Liman
Oscar nominee Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt star in Warner Bros. Pictures' and Village Roadshow Pictures' sci-fi thriller "Edge of Tomorrow," under the direction of Doug Liman. The epic action of "Edge of Tomorrow" unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.
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.
