Directed by Doug Liman ("The Bourne Identity", "Mr. & Mrs. Smith") EDGE OF TOMORROW stars Tom Cruise as Lt. Col. Bill Cage, an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop- forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fight and dying again- and again. 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.
From Variety Magazine: "Groundhog Day" and "Starship Troopers" make surprisingly compatible bedfellows in EDGE OF TOMORROW, a cleverly crafted and propulsively executed sci-fi thriller in which an untrained soldier must relive the same day over and over again... until he finds a way to defeat alien marauders that have taken Earth hostage.
