HotShot trailer: Edge of Tomorrow

This movie has me intrigued…at first blush, it seems part Groundhog Day, part Starship Troopers, but I sense an interesting plot line somehow…

Edge of Tomorrow is based on the Japanese light novel All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. It stars Tom Cruise as Lt. Col. Bill Cage, a non-combat officer pressed into combat in a losing battle to fight off an alien attack on Earth. Undertrained and killed quickly, he suddenly awakes back at training, and relives it all again, and dies again, only to wake back up, for some reason in a time loop. He finds Special Forces soldier Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt), who experiences the same thing. The two of them take advantage of the loop to increase training, becoming better and better…possibly enough to change the results of the battle…
