Tom Cruise wakes up to fight a war he knows he can’t win over and over again in the first trailer for “Edge of Tomorrow.”
Warner Bros. upcoming science fiction release, directed by Doug Liman, takes place in a future in which humans are battling an alien invasion of the earth. Cruise plays a military officer who has never been in combat, and then is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. After being killed within the first few minutes of battle, he finds himself waking up to face the same fate, much like Bill Murray’s experience in “Groundhog Day.”
Emily Blunt co-stars as a Special Forces warrior who fights alongside Cruise in exo-skeleton battle armor as his repeated encounters take him one step closer to finally defeating the enemy.
“Edge of Tomorrow” opens in theaters on June 6.
