The first official poster for Edge of Tomorrow has been released, the film was formerly known as All You Need is Kill. It stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, and is based on Japanese light novel ‘All You Need is Kill’ by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. The film is scheduled to release June 6, 2014. As per the poster Edge of Tomorrow is set to make an appearance at Comic-Con 2013, in San Diego (July 18-21).
The premise for Edge of Tomorrow is as follows:
Humanity is at war with an alien race known as Mimics, and Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat until he is unceremoniously demoted and then dropped—untrained and ill-equipped—into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Cage is killed within minutes, managing to take an Alpha down with him. But, impossibly, he awakens back at the beginning of the same hellish day, and is forced to fight and die again…and again. Direct physical contact with the alien has thrown him into a time loop—dooming him to live out the same brutal combat over and over.
But with each pass, Cage becomes tougher, smarter, and able to engage the Mimics with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt), who has lain waste to more Mimics than anyone on Earth. As Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated battle becomes an opportunity to find the key to annihilating the alien invaders and saving the Earth.
