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 (Tom 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 (Emily Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.
Edge of Tomorrow is based on a manga novel entitled All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, who revealed earlier this year that he is actually writing a graphic novel sequel. It isn't known when that would be ready for publication, but if the movie sequel moves forward, it may be based on Tom Cruise's idea, and not the manga sequel. Tom Cruise wouldn't say how Christopher McQuarrie and Doug Liman reacted to the actor's pitch, or if they would be willing to come back to write and direct the movie sequel.

Emily Blunt plays Special Forces soldier Rita Vrataski, who helps Cage become a better soldier as they try to win this seemingly never-ending war. The supporting cast includes Brendan Gleeson, Bill Paxton, Jonas Armstrong, Dragomir Mrsic and Charlotte Riley.Read More

Edge of Tomorrow has been hailed by the critics as one of the best movies of the year thus far, although the sci-fi thriller starring Tom Cruise hasn't exactly been setting the box office on fire, at least stateside. The film has only taken in $86.4 million domestically, but it has performed well overseas, with a healthy $320.9 worldwide take from a $178 million production budget. Of course, no one knows why exactly the movie isn't faring as well as many would hope, but it's possible that the controversial ending could have affected the box office receipts. However, according to screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie the ending was originally much, much more complex. Of course, if you haven't seen Edge of Tomorrow yet, there will be spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
The writer is referring to the many fans who thought Bill Cage should have actually died at the end, after "dying" over and over again at the time loop. But, after absorbing the Omega's blood, the seemingly-dead Bill came back to life, regaining the Omega's resetting ability, waking up on the helicopter ride before the whole ordeal begins, while becoming a changed man in the process.Read More
