What would you get if you blended Groundhog Day with military sci-fi of the alien invasion variety? First you’d get the Japanese novel, All You Need is Kill, then you’d get the westernized Tom Cruise vehicle, Edge of Tomorrow (which would have kept its unique, imaginative, original title instead of its current, homogenized one if the movie wasn’t PG-rated).
Warner Brothers and village Roadshow have released an extended trailer for Edge of Tomorrow – the Doug Liman/Tom Cruise/Emily Blunt movie that combines military sci-fi with Groundhog Day to create an unusually rich spectacle. It contains a ton of new footage and looks amazing.
Check it out after the jump. Edge of Tomorrow marches into theaters on June 6th.
Warner Brothers has released the first trailer for the new Tom Cruise action movie, Edge of Tomorrow. Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise), who has never seen a day of battle, finds himself dropped into a crucial battle against an invading alien force. He dies. Then, somehow, he’s back, in a time loop – and aware of what’s happening. But he’s not alone – Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt) is also in the loop and undertakes training him.
Think of it as Groundhog Day on a battlefield – but the piano teacher is in the loop and it’s directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. & Mrs. Smith). Edge of Tomorrow is in theaters on June 6, 2014. Check out the trailer after the jump.
Joseph Kosinski’s Oblivion is a big movie that takes some familiar ideas and combines and reshapes them in interesting ways. It is a film with breathtaking visuals, epic themes and intimate moments in combination with some unique action sequences. It is also a film that requires its audience to pay attention – at, more so than most end of the world movies.
Top Gun, the movie that firmly entrenched Tom Cruise in starhood, is getting a really big big screen return when it premieres in IMAX 3D – in selected IMAX theaters – on February 8, 2013. The transfer to IMAX 3D was supervised by the film’s director Tony Scott. Not surprisingly, a 3D Blu-ray release will follow.
The new Jack Reacher trailer isn’t nearly as generic as the first one – and that’s a good thing (I was beginning to worry). Tom Cruise is still not right for the role, but at least movie might be dumb fun.

I Want To Rock because Tom Cruise is Wanted. Dead or Alive! Ok, I can go on with my 80’s hair band references, but let’s not. But don’t stop believing that Rock of Ages is anything but awesome. Well, the original Broadway show, the movie is based on is amazing. Not so sure about this clunky Hollywood adaptation. The movie is campy and silly but not enough. It is held together by an amazing performance by Tom Cruise.
