Originally called All You Need Is Kill (and based on the Manga of the same name), Doug Liman's (Go, The Bourne Identity) Edge of Tomorrow sees Tom Cruise once again entering sci-fi territory as a soldier caught in a Groundhog Day type scenario while battling a fearsome alien race. A new viral twitter account, Embedded UDF, has gone live, giving us some new, action heavy images from the movie, as well as promising the first trailer this Wednesday.
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 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.
It arrives next Summer (May 30th IRELAND & UK / June 6th USA)
