Part of our Cruise Control season.
Stepping smoothly back into the action-packed science fiction realm of Minority Report, Tom Cruise gives a great turn as an out-of-his-depth, time-warping PR officer in Edge Of Tomorrow. Although, he’s also a generous co-star: there’s plenty of room here for a star-making performance from Emily Blunt.
In the near future, Earth is being ravaged by an alien race. Major Bill Cage (Tom Cruise) is a lauded military officer with a sly secret: he’s got no combat experience, exclusively pulling PR strings behind the scenes. When he’s ordered by a superior to film the first wave of a crucial operation against the aliens, he’s killed in combat – but finds himself in a time loop that sends him back to the day before the battle every time he dies.
