Edge of Tomorrow Trailer

Emily Blunt is trying to make up for The Adjustment Bureau, I can tell. I hope she can redeem herself, so I can be not ashamed of having her topping my list of actress to watch from a few years ago [oh, shame]. I just hope we don’t get to just ogle at her while her character trains Cruise’s.

I don’t fully hate him. you know, even though he’s been playing the same type of character in what seems like forever. And he’s totally freaky, but I’m kind of interested in the mood of the trailer- a kind of Source Code meets Oblivion.

Edge of Tomorrow — previously known as All You Need Is Kill — is an adaptation of the Japanese sci-fi light novel [1] by Hiroshi Sakurazaka that tells the story of a new recruit fighting against an invincible alien force that has taken over the earth. On his first battle, the soldier in killed, but instead of passing, he finds himself in a loop that lets him gain experience in the battlefield.

In the original story, the soldier is called Keiji Kiriya, which will be played by Tom Cruise under the name Bill Cage [1], while Emily Blunt will be playing Rita Vrataski (no character name change there). Let’s be honest here; Cruise is a little ‘too’ old to be a ‘new recruit,’ that’s all I’m saying.

The cast is rounded up with Bill Paxton, Kick Gurry, Charlotte Riley, and Jeremy Piven; music by Ramin Djawadi (Pacific Rim) and the direction of Doug Liman (Go, Bourne Identity, Fair Game).

Edge of Tomorrow will be released on June 6th, 2014.

    I don’t know about making up for Bureau. This has the potential to suck.

    […] starting to get a good feel of the movies I’m going to like just by their trailers [1], or so it seems from my enjoyment of Edge of Tomorrow, which has reinstated my faith in Emily […]
