Are you looking forward to The Edge Of Tomorrow? I am — it looks like Groundhog Day meets Starship Troopers, repeatedly pitting Tom Cruise against aliens that blow him to bits in many and varied creative ways.
I haven’t seen the film yet. From trailers it looks like good solid sci-fi fare; Tom Cruise has a surprisingly good record in the genre, so hopefully it’s another feather in his cap.
If you want to learn a bit about the world and characters in The Edge Of Tomorrow before you see it, this 13-minute mini-feature gives you a primer without ruining the storyline. There are moderate spoilers, of course, so don’t click if you want to watch the movie fresh.
