Edge of Tomorrow: Groundhog Day as Sci-FiMay 13th, 2014
Edge of Tomorrow stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt and is directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. & Mrs. Smith). The sci-fi action thriller 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.
Edge of Tomorrow will be in theaters June 6, 2014.
