Edge Of Tomorrow
“Edge of Tomorrow,” Doug Liman's sci-fi “Groundhog Day meets D-Day...IN SPACE!” movie, is kind of a tough one: so much so that we reviewed it twice, with wildly differing results, to cover our bases. Certainly you're going to want to see it so you can decide which side you fall on, but if you're not yet convinced we've also got a bunch of promos to introduce you to the key concepts of the film.

Edge Of Tomorrow
Masks have always fascinated Tom Cruise. There are masks in "Minority Report," "Eyes Wide Shut," and "Vanilla Sky," and they serve a key purpose in all four "Mission: Impossible" movies (movies, it just so happens, that Cruise also produces). In films like "Interview with the Vampire," "Valkyrie" and "Tropic Thunder," Cruise transforms himself physically with the help of advanced prosthetics, to the point that these augmented bits become a part of him; he is the mask. It's very apparent that Tom Cruise is obsessed with the idea of being anyone but Tom Cruise. This idea reaches its logical zenith in his latest movie, the brilliant sci-fi extravaganza "Edge of Tomorrow," in which Cruise plays a man who dies on the battlefield and is instantly reborn. Every day, Cruise could be someone else. The fact that he chooses to be himself is what's really impressive.

Edge of Tomorrow
As far as summer blockbusters go, you gotta somewhat admire "Edge Of Tomorrow" for presenting audiences with a movie that takes some explaining to get the premise across. Well, Warner Bros. is doing all they can to make it clear by dropping an extended, nearly four-minute-long trailer for the sci-fi flick.

Emily Blunt, Denis Villeneuve, Sicario
French Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve had already impressed internationally with “Incendies” which earned him a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar nomination in 2010. That opened the doors for the one-two 2013/2014 punch of “Enemy” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and “Prisoners” featuring Hugh Jackman, Gyllenhaal and a star-studded cast that included Viola Davis, Paul Dano, Melissa Leo and more. How much extra clout did the two critically-acclaimed movies give him?

Edge Of Tomorrow, Cruise
"If you love Tom Cruise, you see him giving a genius performance, and if you hate Tom Cruise he dies like 200 times in the movie," director Doug Liman told European press earlier this month, in what must be the oddest promo quote for a summer movie you're likely to hear. But it's also true as Cruise undergoes the worst "Groundhog Day" ever in "Edge Of Tomorrow."

Sandman Joseph Gordon-Levitt
While certainly not without its problems, “Don Jon” proved a major effort from its director and star Joseph Gordon-Levitt this year, first gaining acclaim at Sundance before making its way to theatres in September. His directing skills were the main takeaway from the experience though, and they haven’t gone unnoticed: news comes today that Levitt may be attached to a considerable leap in material for his sophomore feature, and also that he’s to lead the U.S. cast in the final film from the master of Japanese animation.

Edge Of Tomorrow
"It's storytelling. You're going to get the audience used to the experience of it," Tom Cruise told USA Today this week in advance of today's trailer for "Edge Of Tomorrow." "And then you get to have them laugh with it." Does he mean audiences are going to laugh at/with the fact that Cruise's character dies over and over again, to the point that the Doug Liman-directed film already has a built-in and ready hashtag (#LiveDieRepeat—we know you're just dying to use it).

First up, Emily Blunt has joined the brewing mystery flick "Sister." Based on the novel by Rosamund Lupton—with the book repped not so coincidentally by Felicity Blunt, Emily's sister—the story "follows Beatrice (Blunt) as she investigates the death of her younger sister Tess, whose death is ruled a suicide by police. Convinced that her sister was murdered, Beatrice sets out to uncover the strange events leading up to Tess’ death, though she may pay a terrible price for the truth."

Affleck, Gone Girl
Following the flop of "The Lone Ranger," we here at The Playlist have been discussing what this means for future projects on Disney's slate, and more specifically, David Fincher's "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea." As you might remember, Fincher's pal Brad Pitt passed on the lead role, and the other actors the director is looking at the for the part (Channing Tatum among them) aren't available until next year. But following the twin disasters of 'Ranger' and "John Carter," is Disney really going to flip the switch on this project, especially with a director who demands as much financial freedom and creative control as Fincher? Or is it another ambitious concept that's a dicey prospect for a four-quadrant hit? We're sure those discussions will be ongoing at Disney (who are yet to greenlight it) but until then, Fincher is moving on his next feature.
