Watch Rene Russo honor Kevin Costner with help from an auctioneer, and other highlights from the Critics' Choice Awards
You can hear — and see — those classic Sondheim melodies performed by the likes of Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, and James Corden, exclusively on Yahoo Movies.
From Reese Witherspoon to Emily Blunt, it was a star-studded evening on Saturday night as Hollywood's A-list actors attended the Governors Awards, put on by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
In Edge of Tomorrow Tom Cruise tumbles into a hellish point in the time-space continuum where his character – Cage – must battle a race of superfast, goo-oozing aliens over and over again. As it did with Bill Murray’s character, reconciling himself with life in an infinite loop takes Cruise’s Cage through the stages of mourning — from disbelief to frustration to despair and eventually acceptance. Cage is forced to relive a brutal beach battle highly reminiscent of D-Day’s battle for Omaha Beach, and director Steven Spielberg’s portrayal of that battle specifically.
The Tom Cruise sci-fi movie “Edge of Tomorrow” has a lot of ground to make up if it’s going to avoid being summer’s first big-budget box-office dud. Emily Blunt co-stars in the film, which is directed by Doug Liman.

Compounding the problem for “Edge of Tomorrow” is that it’s opening against Fox’s “The Fault in Our Stars.” The romantic drama starring Shailene Woodley came on tracking as well Thursday — in the $25 million range as well.
When Bill Murray repeated the same day over and over in “Groundhog Day,” he used the time to learn how to play the piano and be a better man. Give Tom Cruise the same opportunity and he trains himself to be an alien-killing one-man army. The veteran Hollywood star, now 51, puts actors half his age to shame in this new look at “Edge of Tomorrow,” the time-jumping sci-fi thriller from Doug Liman, “the director of ‘The Bourne Identity’ and ‘Mr & Mrs. Smith’” (he also made the less explosive but still great “Swingers” and “Go”). Cruise jumps out of airplanes, crawls through the mud, gets shot, blown up and beaten up by Emily Blunt … and keeps coming back for more.
