Lieutenant William Cage (Cruise) is the top PR man for the UK-based United Defence Force, which is fighting a major alien invasion that’s already swallowed most of Europe and Russia. After being demoted and press-ganged into service for ‘Operation Downfall’, the last big push on the beaches of Normandy, Cage is killed by one of the attacking “mimics”. Then he wakes up, alive again, on the morning of his second-to-last day...
A playful and frantic science-fiction twister which mimics the best (Aliens, The Matrix, Groundhog Day) while offering something fresh and — most importantly — thrilling.
