Warner Bros.’ upcoming science-fiction action flick “Edge of Tomorrow” has made its Internet debut with the release of its first trailer. Previously known by the name “All You Need is Kill”, Edge of Tomorrow stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, and brings to the stage some mech-suited futuristic battle goodness, and just a taste of Groundhog Day deja vu.
Here are a few observations/things I love already about this one:
1. The delivery of the story is simple. We understand completely in 2.5 minutes what each character means to the story, including a sharp Emily Blunt.
2. One hopes that the action in the final third of this trailer is the tip of the iceberg, not a selection of all the film’s money shots.
3. Bill Paxton’s mustache.
4. My Shazaam app was unable to figure out what song that is in the trailer, but it works. Perhaps some kind soul will help me out in the comments.
Please feel free to deliver your own thoughts in the comments below. Just know that I can only accept thoughts in the form of numbered lists. Edge of Tomorrow is due in theaters June 6, 2014.
