EDGE OF TOMORROW (formerly ALL YOU NEED IS KILL) trailer & poster – Tom Cruise in a mech suit!

I gotta say, I love that Tom Cruise is embracing the sci-fi genre, and while OBLIVION wasn’t exactly a huge hit, I actually did enjoy it a lot.  His next foray into that sort of world in EDGE OF TOMORROW, formerly titled ALL YOU NEED IS KILL based on the book of the same name. What’s it about? Watching the trailer should give you an idea, but let’s just say it’s a sort of sci-fi GROUNDHOG DAY scenario. Emily Blunt co-stars, and it’s directed by Doug Liman. Check out the new poster first…

And of course, here’s what you really want to see… the new trailer:

EDGE OF TOMORROW (Warner Bros. Pictures) is directed by Doug Liman from a script by Christopher McQuarrie, Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth and stars Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Jeremy Piven, Ciaran Hinds, Noah Taylor, Kick Gurry, Dragomir Mrsic, Charlotte Riley, Jonas Armstrong, Franz Drameh, Masayoshi Haneda and Tony Way.

SYNOPSIS: The story unfolds in a near future in which a hive-like alien race, called Mimics, have hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, shredding great cities to rubble and leaving millions of human casualties in their wake. No army in the world can match the speed, brutality or seeming prescience of the weaponized Mimic fighters or their telepathic commanders. But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, with no second chances.

Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously demoted and then dropped—untrained and ill-equipped—into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Cage is killed within minutes, managing to take an Alpha down with him. But, impossibly, he awakens back at the beginning of the same hellish day, and is forced to fight and die again…and again. Direct physical contact with the alien has thrown him into a time loop—dooming him to live out the same brutal combat over and over.

But with each pass, Cage becomes tougher, smarter, and able to engage the Mimics with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt), who has lain waste to more Mimics than anyone on Earth. As Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated battle becomes an opportunity to find the key to annihilating the alien invaders and saving the Earth.

EDGE OF TOMORROW is set to hit 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D theaters on June 6, 2014.
