PRESS STATEMENT FROM WARNER BROS:
Warner Bros. Pictures' new exhilarating sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt will have special sneak previews on Monday and Tuesday, June 2 & 3 in selected theaters across the country.
The Doug Liman-directed action-adventure will be available for previews in cinemas starting at 7PM on the aforementioned dates. Regular ticket prices will apply.
Hailed by U.S. critics as Cruise's “best movie in years,” Edge of Tomorrow currently has a 92% fresh rating at the review-consensus site Rottentomatoes.com. Variety's Justin Chang described the film as “cleverly crafted and propulsively executed sci-fi thriller,” while Edward Douglas of ComingSoon.net praised it as “The best action movie of the summer.”
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.
Major William 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.
The international cast also includes Bill Paxton, Brendan Gleeson, Jonas Armstrong, Tony Way, Kick Gurry, Franz Drameh, Dragomir Mrsic and Charlotte Riley.
Liman directed Edge of Tomorrow from a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie and Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth, based on the novel titled All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.
Opening wide across the Philippines on June 5, Edge of Tomorrow will be distributed in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
