Edge of Tomorrow

Dough Liman wurde als Regisseur bekannt durch »Mr. and Mrs. Smith« – jetzt kommt sein neuestes Werk ins Kino: »Edge of Tomorrow« mit Tom Cruise und Emily Blunt. Cruise (der mittlerweile wohl ein totaler SF-Freak geworden zu sein scheint) spielt darin einen Offizier, der das Pech hat, bereits nach wenigen Minuten bei einem Kommandoeinsatz gegen böse Aliens getötet zu werden.

Kurz darauf kommt er jedoch wundersamerweise wieder zu sich und durchlebt den gleichen Tag immer und immer wieder. »Groundhog Day meets Forever war«? Durchaus möglich. Der Trailer jedenfalls ist schnuckelig und irgendwie muss ich bei diesen geilen Exoskeletts immer an Warhammer 40 k und Elysium denken.🙂

Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow have released a new trailer for director Doug Liman’s (Mr. and Mrs. Smith) sci-fi actioner Edge of Tomorrow.  The film stars Tom Cruise as a military officer who is killed within minutes of a doomed combat mission to take down a hive-like alien race.  He wakes up and is forced to relive the day over and over again, but it allows him to become a better soldier, and perhaps change his fate thanks to the help of a fellow officer played by Emily Blunt.  I really like the story, but it raises an important question: Is the gravity of a character’s repeated deaths cheapened by a reliance on action?  We could be looking at a case where the set pieces overshadow a strong story, but I hope that’s not the case.
