One of the most pleasant surprises about the film was the way it blended comedy into the script, something most sci-fi blockbusters are doing away with in favour of a dark and gritty feel.
Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt both put in exceptional leading performances, and with the film arriving on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD next week on our shores, we’ve got the first deleted scene from the film to share, courtesy of Warner Bros.
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.
