With ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ getting its UK release this weekend and a US release right around the corner, it’s time for the final trailer for Tom Cruise’s ‘Edge of Tomorrow!’ All of the clips for the film have just been looking amazing so far. This ‘Groundhog Day’ styled science fiction war film that pits man vs. alien really just looks to be a ton of fun. My only hope is that it doesn’t end with the entire thing being an experiment by the human government or the alien race to see how adaptable we are. That could prove to be annoying but its hard to tell what direction they’ll end up going with this for the very end of the film.
While we wait for the release of the film, the final trailer has hit online!
Honestly each of these trailers have been doing a better job than the last at getting me interested in the film. With Cruise in science fiction films being something I’d watch anyway, I will say that they’ve done a good job at selling me on it regardless.
Of course, if the trailers haven’t sold you on the film yet and you’ve been wanting to know more about it than the original synopsis has been sharing, we have a long form version of it to share with you! More plot details and a better summary than anything we’ve read about it to date are found below!
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 (Tom 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 (Emily 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.
