Trailer: “Edge of Tomorrow”

Is it going to now become a rule of thumb for Tom Cruise to do the voice-over exposition whenever he’s in a Sci-Fi film? In “Oblivion” he said he was the mop-up crew… Now, he claims to be stuck in a Groundhog Day, where he’s forced to (as the film’s tagline goes) live, die and repeat, until he gets everything right.

II have to say that going by the visuals alone, “Edge of Tomorrow” (formerly known as “All you need is kill”, directed by Doug Liman) might be rather interesting. Based on a manga by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, it is supposed to be a Sci-Fi of the alien invasion variety, where a soldier (Tom Cruise) upon dying on his first day of battle discovers he’s stuck in a time loop and has to relive the last day of his life over and over again.However, with each single passing, he becomes a much better soldier…

At the minute, I’ll try to reserve judgement. Though, going by history alone, Tom Cruise lately doesn’t have a particularly strong record in delivering good quality entertainment. I din’t care much for “Jack Reacher” and rolled my eyes at “Oblivion”, but we’ll see soon enough. Meanwhile, enjoy the trailer.

“Edge of Tomorrow” opens on the 6th of June in the US and on the 30th of May in the UK.

 

Trailer: “The Signal”

Hot off the screens of this year’s Sundance Festival there comes this mysterious indie science-fiction film “The Signal” starring Laurence Fishburne and directed by William Eubank. The trailer gives away exactly zero information about what this film is going to be about (and I refuse to read reviews prior to seeing the film myself), but given the buzz it has generated so far and the content of said trailer, I am definitely interested in seeing it.

“The Signal” opens on the 13th of June in the US of A.
