Having Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt and director Doug Liman show up unexpectedly at the San Diego Comic-Con this year to talk sci-fi battle pic Edge Of Tomorrow might have been enough for some, but Warner Bros. decided to follow up with new posters featuring the two stars in their exoskeletons.
Edge Of Tomorrow, adapted from Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s novel All You Need Is Kill, finds Cruise as Bill Cage, a soldier happy to be far from the front lines in a brutal war against powerful aliens.
Cage, who has scored a plum job overseeing the army’s PR, makes a series of mistakes and ends up in full battle armour on the front line, where he promptly dies. Caught in a time loop, he begins to figure out the secret to fighting the bad guys, smack dab in one of the most important skirmishes of the conflict.
According to Blunt, the suits were remarkably heavy to wear and can’t have been much fun to act in, but that’s what you get when you sign up to work with the likes of Liman and Cruise. Check out our report from the 'Con about the movie, which should help you prepare for its arrival on May 30 next year.
