Here's the first explosive trailer for Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt

Dec. 11, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Man, does this look good.

It's crazy to think that the guy who directed two movies that I'm fond of GO and SWINGERS quickly moved on to a career in the action genre. Though I'd like to see him get back to films like those, I must say that EDGE OF TOMORROW has certainly won me over with this first trailer. It's sci-fi, includes cast members like Emily Blunt, Jeremy Piven, Bill Paxtonoh, and Tom Cruise. That alone is worth the price of admission. Check it out for yourself.

"What I'm about to tell you sounds crazy but you have to listen to me."

Synopsis:

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. Lt. Col. Bill 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 loopforcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying againand 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.

The story is based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka's science fiction novel All You Need Is Kill which was the original title of the film. I actually liked that title over EDGE OF TOMORROW. Also, adding another book (there's a manga version as well) to the reading list. Did anyone else notice the Portal-like narration? "This is not the end." What a strong first trailer, and might I say Emily Blunt is a total badass.

EDGE OF TOMORROW hits theaters on June 6th, 2014.

I just realized that in the future there are no more showers. Artificial insemination will be the only way to go, right? I mean, I'm not touching that. I can smell it from way over here. Peeyew!

Awesome. Watching this made me as excited as when I watched the Pacific Rim trailer for the first time.

If a Halo movie would ever get made....

Emily Blunt would make a great Sarah Palmer. Definitely sexy spartan material. *swoons*

Now that I've seen the trailer, I think 'Live Die Repeat' should have been the title rather than a tagline.

Tom Cruise battling aliens, what an original premise that hasn't been done before!

Ha, ha, seriously though this looks cool. the trailer immediately gets me interested as opposed to the one for Oblivion which I couldn't have cared less about after watching. I'm really not shore about the premise (weird) but this does look like the Aliens vs. Mech Suits action movie we all now realize how much we want. Got a cool Elszium or Space Marine like feel to.

Not a bandwagoner but I'll pretty much see whatever Tom Cruise puts out at this point. Can't really recall any true stinkers he's put out in at least a decade. This flick looks like yet another typical awesome Tom Cruise flick.

The infinite time loop?

What if Tom Cruise is an AI program that is stuck in a computer simulator. In hopes that the human race can figure a way to beat their alien adversary or better yet he was created by the aliens as they learn more about humans. No i didn't read the novel.

I have to say that I forget about certain films coming out in 2014 because like many, I am waiting for 2015 film line up. I have to admit that 2014 has a good line up too, and this film is one I'm looking forward to seeing.

I do like how this looks, but Liman will need to put a fresh spin on the "Groundhog Day" formula, seeing as its also been done in a science fiction context in Source Code recently. Can't argue with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt in big ole mech suits though!

Well.....

I am sick of time travel movies (especially ones where the day repeats so the hero can continue until he eventually wins), but it does look good. We'll have to see the finished product to know for sure but for now I'm going with "Definite maybe...."

Say what you want about Tom, but the man is a showman. I think he's being edgier in his film choices, as his dip into the sci-fi pool has really caught my attention.

Looks a lot better than I thought.

But why do studios insist on showing all the action and plot points in the trailers.

Meh

Lost interest half way through the Trailer (the music is brutal). Generic story plus Tom Cruise, Tom Cruise and Tom Cruise. He should allow some other A-listers to play along him.
I'll take Godzilla over this any day!

Imagine you didn't read the synopsis

Would you really have any idea what the hell is going on? I was waiting for them to explain the time travel thing. Thankfully I do know what's going on so it looks awesome, but I'm worried about the general audience.

Hmmm, 50/50 - could go either way - might be cool, could be dire. That's what that trailer says to me.

aliens/cruise/blunt/groundhog day

By the looks of this, it can be a kick ass film. Especially with the groundhog day type scenario the film has. I am getting a little tired of seeing cruise in sci fi and hope he does something different. But this looks too damn good.

Trailer was great and very well put together. Gave you enough of the film without being being spoiled. I for one can't wait for this. Cruise delivers everytime like no other.

Now *that's* what I wanted to feel like watching the Jupiter Ascending trailer. Looks pretty awesome. Love that Cruise is still actually TRYING when we have other stars like Bruce Willis just phoning it in. Also, just throwing this out there, I'd be there opening day if they added Cruise to the Expendables or a similar franchise. He may be little and crazy (who in Hollywood isn't?) but the dude's still killing it.

Man that songs reminds me of the trailer from Battle: Los Angeles. Finally a proper trailer put together, enough action, character introductions and leaves you with so many questions about what the film is about.
