Just yesterday we posted a new image from the Tom Cruise sci-fi All You Need Is Kill, but what hadn’t been revealed at the time was that a new title had already been decided on- Edge Of Tomorrow. Many had expected a change, as the original name was a rather awkward gaming in-joke, even if it was the title of the graphic novel it’s based on).
Warner Bros. has also revealed that the film is a last-minute addition to Comic-Con, and they’ll debut the first footage from the film on Saturday. It’s believed it’ll be part of Warner Bros./Legendary Entertainment’s presentation, which also includes Godzilla, Seventh Son, 300: Rise of an Empire, Gravity, and The Lego Movie).
And to show it really does have a new name, the studio has released the first poster, which you can see above.
Here’s the official synopsis: ‘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.
‘Lt. Col. Bill 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.’
It’s due out June 2014.
