If Tom Cruise’s character in any given film isn’t busy seducing women, he’s the badass dude roundhouse kicking people in the neck. But in the trailer for “Edge of Tomorrow”, it looks like he’s taking a back seat to our favorite Katy Perry look-a-like (sorry Zooey Deschanel), Emily Blunt.
The latest film from Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity), the plots centers around Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) being trapped in a “time loop”, which causes him to fight the same apocalyptic battle over and over again, always ending with the same shitty results. It isn’t until he meets Rita Vrataski (Blunt) that he realizes he’s not the only one, and the battle can be won… if she trains him for the fight.
Even if Emily Blunt is the last actress we would pin for a highly trained killing instructor, the trailer makes it seem like she’s got the role down with no problem. Plus, Tom Cruise is almost a legal midget at 4′ 11″, so this scenario is plausible.
