Across his career, Tom Cruise has made many all-time-great movies – from his early character drama work in A Few Good Men and Jerry Maguire, to the high-flying Top Gun and its sequel Maverick, to… well, every Mission: Impossible movie. But in recent years, there’s been another Cruise movie that’s stood particularly tall – Edge Of Tomorrow, the alien-attack time-loop movie that sees Cruise get splattered again and again while trying to figure out how to beat the marauding ‘Mimics’ intent on taking over Earth. The film, directed by Doug Liman and co-starring Emily Blunt, sadly didn’t set the box office alight on release, but picked up a major following as a top-tier Cruise movie – and the star clearly agrees.

On social media, Cruise shared a thread celebrating 10 years since Edge Of Tomorrow hit the big screen – celebrating the movie, and shouting out his collaborators. “I want to take the opportunity to thank Emily Blunt once again for being such a great friend and brilliant actress. I love her performance in this film. Her dedication. Her humor. Her vulnerability and power. She brought it all,” he wrote. “This anniversary brings back incredible memories. My first collaboration with Doug Liman. Rejoining the indomitable Brendan Gleeson. And my first time working alongside the great Bill Paxton. His performance and the character he created left an indelible mark on this film.”

With Edge Of Tomorrow moving between blistering sci-fi action, sharp comedy, and emotional moments, Cruise noted the film’s specific flavour combination. “Hitting this kind of tone was no easy task. The writing and storytelling of Christopher McQuarrie made the movie work. Along with the dedication of our entire team who helped bring it to the screen—it was an absolute joy creating it with you all,” he wrote. “To everyone who has enjoyed this film over the years, thank you for being a fan. And thank you to Warner Bros. for making this film. I can’t wait to share more about the great movies we’re working on.” Sadly, it seems like whatever’s next won’t be the long-discussed but never-materialised Edge Of Tomorrow sequel. Can we get a re-do on that, please?
