New Edge Of Tomorrow Images Online
Tom Cruise heads into battle

Building to a trailer due to arrive later today, some new imagery from Doug Liman’s sci-fi action thriller Edge Of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, has arrived online. Check out Cruise and Blunt below, courtesy of USA Today.

Edge Of Tomorrow, adapted from Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s novel All You Need Is Kill, finds Cruise as Bill Cage, a soldier happy to be working 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 finds himself back in time and begins to figure out the secret to fighting the bad guys, smack-dab in one of the most important skirmishes of the conflict. Along for the ride is Special Forces fighter Rita Vrataski (Blunt) who understands what he's going through.

It’s a distinctly different role from most for the actress. "I've discarded the bonnet and corset for an exosuit and a huge sword, it seems," Blunt tells UA Today. "I was looking for something very different from anything I have done before. This was definitely that." Long days of training were required, with Blunt working on sprinting, yoga, wirework and gymnastics. Oh, and becoming a badass. "I even learned Krav Maga, a lethal martial arts using pretty much everything including your teeth to destroy. That was pretty fun."

Cruise, of course, is used to throwing himself into such things. But even was surprised at the physical demands. "One of the suits with the angel wings had a sniper rifle and missile launcher on my back and weighed about 130 pounds. I'm having to sprint in it," he says. “It's physically gruelling."

With Bill Paxton, Jeremy Piven, Lara Pulver, Charlotte Riley and Jonas Armstrong in the cast, Edge Of Tomorrow is set to arrive on May 30.
