You may have many options this weekend when you go to the movies but , what should be on your radar? Surprisingly “Edge of Tomorrow” should be at the top of it.
This science fiction tale takes us into a world where humans are battling an invasion of creatures they call Mimics. Without giving too much away, Tom Cruise plays a demoted officer that is forced to live the same day over and over again. But this may just give humanity a chance to beat the enemy. With the help of a Xena worthy Emily Blunt and no help from the hilarious Bill Paxton.
With humor and epic carnage this movie is exactly what you want in a summer blockbuster. Nothing too mushy. Just wisecracks and cans of whoop… well you know. Played with intelligence that a sophisticated science fiction fan can appreciate. It definitely is worth being on your list of must see. Go see it in its ultimate format. Find the nearest 3D Imax and get ready to enjoy what can best be described as “Ground Hog Day” meets “Starship Troopers.” And that can’t ever be a bad thing.

About “Edge of Tomorrow”
Oscar® nominee Tom Cruise (the “Mission: Impossible” films, “Collateral,” “Jerry Maguire”) and Emily Blunt (“The Devil Wears Prada,” “The Adjustment Bureau”) star in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ sci-fi thriller “Edge of Tomorrow,” under the direction of Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity,” “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”).
The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.
Major William Cage (Cruise) is 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, fighting 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 (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.
The international cast also includes Bill Paxton (“Aliens,” HBO’s “Big Love”), Brendan Gleeson (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1”), Noah Taylor (“Lawless”), Kick Gurry (Australian TV’s “Tangle”), Dragomir Mrsic (“Snabba Cash II”), Charlotte Riley (“World Without End”), Jonas Armstrong (BBC TV’s “Robin Hood”), Franz Drameh (“Attack the Block”), Masayoshi Haneda (“Emperor”) and Tony Way (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”).
