Warner Bros. Pictures is time traveling (to die over and over again) with Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow. In theaters June 6, 2014 from director Doug Liman, the trailer was released today and can be viewed below.
I am absolutely in love with the first trailer, which really takes its time in pushing the story, as opposed to the film’s extraordinary special effects.

But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy“
