Spoiler Alert: Tom Cruise dies a lot in Edge of Tomorrow. Ok, that’s barely a spoiler, as the premise of the film involves Cruise’s character living the same day over and over, as it resets every time he dies. With that said, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, you might want to skip this video, as this darkly amusing “death edit” is kind of spoilery. You know he dies a lot, but seeing those scenes for the first time is better in context.
Edge of Tomorrow really does have a high re-watchability factor. I confirmed as much the second time I saw the film in the theater. But watching the video above has me feeling especially excited for the home video release, which is presumably the intention of the Edge of Tomorrow Live. Die. Repeat death edit. The video was shared this week on the EoT Facebook page, along with a caption that reminds us that Edge Of Tomorrow makes its Blu-ray debut on October 7.
The supercut highlights some of the best death moments for Tom Cruise’s Major William Cage, a man who’s dropped into an intense battle against invading aliens almost completely unprepared. When Cage inherits the aliens’ ability to reset the day, he eventually figures out how to improve his fighting skills. So yeah, it’s Groundhog Day with aliens, and this is obviously a sci-fi action film, as opposed to a Bill Murray comedy. But the video highlights, Edge of Tomorrow isn’t without its lighter moments. In fact, it’s willingness to acknowledge the humor of the situation — and Cruise’s ability to capture that tone and work it in favor of his character’s slow but noticeable evolution — is one of the big reasons Doug Liman’s film works so well.
“On your feet, maggot!”
It’s unfortunate that tone didn’t come through as much in the original promos for Edge of Tomorrow, as the thriller might have secured a bigger audience stateside. Alas, perhaps it’ll pick up more steam with its home video release. As mentioned, the Blu-ray arrives next week. However the film is already available to purchase digitally. And of course, those who want to read the book on which the story was based can check out Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s All You Need Is Kill. It’s different from the film, but a pretty great (and relatively quick) read.
More pictures of Tom and Rebecca on the set of Mission: Impossible 5 in Vienna. Obviously, these may contain spoilers (even though we don’t know anything about the plot yet).
Tom is in Vienna filming Mission: Impossible 5 and the first pictures from the set are already up! Take a look:
Actor Tom Cruise is being honored with the Japan Cool Content Contribution (J3C) Award for acting for his performance in EDGE OF TOMORROW (2014) from the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), and the Consulate General of Japan, Los Angeles. The 2nd Annual Japan Cool Content Contribution Awards Ceremony will be held on September 13, 2014 at the Official Residence of the Consul General of Japan in Los Angeles.
For the first time, the J3C Awards will be held in conjunction with the LA EigaFest (Japan Film Festival). The 4th Annual LA EigaFest, presented by the Japan Film Society, will be held September 12th – 14th at the Egyptian Theater.
EDGE OF TOMORROW was based on the Japanese sci-fi novel All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka and starred Cruise as Major William Cage, a reluctant soldier stuck reliving the same day.
Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie recently took a break from filming MI5 to participate in the icebucket challenge by accepting the challenge from actor Hugh Jackman.
Yesterday, Hugh Jackman challenged Tom Cruise and the cast of Mission: Impossible for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and here they are taking the challenge! Since the cast of Mission: Impossible isn’t filming yet, Tom and Chris took the challenge for all the cast, watch it!
Good news for Misson: Impossible 5.
While Tom Cruise is certainly the true headliner of the Mission: Impossible franchise, he’s not the only recurring star. He only had a cameo appearance at the end of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, but Ving Rhames is the only actor other than Cruise to appear in all four of the series’ titles. We had very little doubt that he wouldn’t be getting the call to return for the in-development Mission: Impossible 5, but now it seems the deal is officially sealed.
If Mission: Impossible 5 director Christopher McQuarrie’s official Twitter feed can be considered a reliable source (I think it’s safe), then it seems that Ving Rhames has officially come aboard for the sequel:

In the Mission: Impossible movies, Rhames is known for playing Luther Stickell, an IMF agent who works alongside Crusie’s Ethan Hunt to help stop terrorists and global disasters. He’s a particularly skilled hacker, which is typically how he is best utilized within a unit
Looking at the “cc’s,” the social media message also further confirms two more actors who will coming back to the Mission: Impossible series after previous tours of duty. Jeremy Renner’s highly-skilled yet extremely cautious William Brandt is set to come back after the events of Ghost Protocol, and Simon Pegg will be back to play Benji Dunn a third time, first starring in Mission: Impossible III. It will be interesting to see how Mission: Impossible 5 handles the presence of both Luther and Benji, as the characters having overlapping skill sets when it comes to using computers. It could wind up creating a fun little conflict – provided that both actors are actually playing full supporting roles in the sequel and one isn’t just being pinned to the sidelines.
Exciting as it is that Cruise, Rhames, Renner and Pegg are all coming back, there is still an important IMF agent missing: Paula Patton’s Jane Carter. The end of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol suggested she would be around for another call of duty, and the actress has her own personal Twitter (albeit not a very active one), so why is she not listed here with the boys? She was a great presence in the last movie, and it would be a true shame for her to be the only one of the main stars not to come back.
Mission: Impossible 5 is still in pre-production, with a script written by Iron Man 3 co-writer Drew Pearce, and Paramount Pictures currently has the film dated to be released on December 25, 2015. It’s been reported that actress Rebecca Ferguson has signed on in a key role, and Alec Baldwin may be coming aboard as well.
