Edge of Tomorrow Trailer: The Tom Cruise Loop

In the first trailer for Edge of Tomorrow, based on the Japanese sci-fi novel All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, Tom Cruise is stuck in a time loop — fighting aliens, getting killed, and then waking up a day before that same battle. Every single day. Luckily, he finds Emily Blunt and she "gets it," so now they're stuck attempting to figure out how to break the loop and "win the war." This is only director Doug Liman's third movie since 2005's Mr. and Mrs. Smith (the other two being Jumper and Fair Game), so hopefully he hasn't been trapped in the same damn time loop. Wake up, Doug!
