Four years ago Edge of Tomorrow premiered in theaters around the world. The trailers and commercials didn’t excite me and I almost didn’t want to see the film. But my family and I decided to take a chance on it and so we went to see it over Maleficent which had also just recently come out. It was one of the greatest movie surprises I’ve ever had.
Edge of Tomorrow is a classic alien invasion story with a Groundhog Day twist as one man (played by none other than Tom Cruise) is forced to relive a traumatic day that leads to a horrendous battle over and over and over again. He acquires the help of an acclaimed warrior, Rita Vrataski, and together they are dealt with the task of defeating the aliens before they take over the world.
It’s an action-packed science fiction film unlike any other alien invasion movie I’ve ever seen and clearly one of my Tom Cruise favorites. If you liked War of the Worlds this film will utterly blow your mind.
It did so well in fact that now a sequel, which will be helmed by the same director, Doug Liman, is in the works. But here’s the catch. The sequel is actually going to be a prequel that once again features Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt kicking some more alien booty. Um…awesome!
How it’s going to work, I have no idea, but Doug Liman has said that he intends this movie to change the way we view sequels. That sounds pretty cool and I can’t wait to see it. 🙂
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
