I am so crazy excited for Village Roadshow and Warner Bros. Pictures’ Edge of Tomorrow, their adaptation of the Japanese novel “All You Need is Kill” by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.
Say what you will about Tom Cruise, but I’m still a super fan. Emily Blunt is fantastic, and so is Aliens vet Bill Paxton. Not to mention that the movie looks like an insane action spectacle in the vein of Xbox’s “Titanfall”. I am exciteddd.
We scored a massive image gallery that will repeat, over and over.
The pic 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.
“Major William 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.”
The international cast also includes Bill Paxton (Aliens, HBO’s “Big Love), Brendan Gleeson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1), Noah Taylor (Lawless), Kick Gurry (Australian TV’s “Tangle), Dragomir Mrsic (Snabba Cash II), Charlotte Riley (World Without End), Jonas Armstrong (BBC TV’s “Robin Hood), Franz Drameh (Attack the Block), Masayoshi Haneda (Emperor) and Tony Way (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).
Liman is directing Edge of Tomorrow from a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie and Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth.
