Titled an “IMAX Exclusive,” the new Edge of Tomorrow video clocks in at a whopping three and a half minutes, and begins with rookie soldier Tom Cruise headed into what proves to be a very brief (at first) mission in mankind’s war against an alien invasion. As the trailer shows us, Tom Cruise’s Major William Cage is dropped in on a massive aliens vs. humans battle that he’s in no way prepared for. From the look of it, he literally dies before he hits the ground. Fortunately, Cage seems to have hijacked the ability to restart the day whenever he dies, a fact that’s brought to light by Emily Blunt’s Rita Vrataski, whom Cage tracks down on her orders. From there, Cruise’s character is able to improve his efforts to engage the enemy little by little with each “new” day.
Warner Bros has Edge of Tomorrow lined up to debut June 6. In addition to Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise, the cast also includes Bill Paxton and Jeremy Piven.
