Edge Of Tomorrow Doug Liman Tom Cruise
Hot off the international success of "Edge Of Tomorrow," Doug Liman is looking abroad for another potential hit, this time as a producer. Liman, along with Dave Bartis ("Covert Affairs") and Gene Klein ("Suits"), will be adapting the Danish TV hit "The Legacy" for the American small screen.

Doug Liman Victory
It may not have been the immediate record-smashing success that Warner Bros. would have wanted, but “Edge of Tomorrow” is hardly the bomb many prognosticators tipped it to be with just inches separating the film from crossing $300 million worldwide mark. With box office success like that, director Doug Liman has wasted no time in lining up a new gig.

Edge Of Tomorrow Doug Liman Tom Cruise
This weekend, Tom Cruise is back in theatres with the sci-fi blockbuster "Edge Of Tomorrow," one of the few summer movies not based on a toy, comic or video game (though it is based on a book). While our reviewers were split, the movie promises an intriguing premise, Cruise in action hero mode, and director Doug Liman operating at full throttle. But there was a moment just before cameras rolled, where it seemed the movie might come off the rails.

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.

Doug Liman’s first feature-length directorial outing in four years, the Tom Cruise-starring sci-fi blockbuster “Edge of Tomorrow,” sees release later this year and the “Bourne Identity” director isn’t wasting time in lining up a follow-up gig. THR reports Liman is being courted by Warner Bros. to helm an adaptation of the forthcoming children’s novel “Railhead.”

Noah, Russell Crowe, Aronofsky
This week sees the release of “Noah,” and it’s notable for a number of reasons. For one, it’s that it’s a relatively rare Biblical movie not aimed principally at religious audiences (which may or may not pay off). For another, it’s the latest film from “Requiem For A Dream” and “Black Swan” director Darren Aronofsky. But perhaps more than anything else, it’s a movie that costs $125 million, almost four times as much as the director’s most expensive previous film, “The Fountain,” the helmer having been given the keys to Paramount’s war chest after the surprise smash success of “Black Swan,” which made nearly $300 million worldwide.

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."

For a brief moment, Doug Liman was flirting with more serious fare, developing projects like "Attica," an adaptation of Olen Steinhauer's "The Tourist," the documentary "Reckoning With Torture: Memos And Testimonies From The War On Terror" and a big-screen version of Jack Finney's "Time And Again." But we'd wager in today's climate that kind of stuff is hard to get off the ground, so no surprise that in the past he was also linked to the comedy "El Presidente" with Tom Cruise and the former Tony Scott project, "Narco Sub." And for his next gig, he's stepping right up to the blockbuster world again for a big-time video game adaptation.

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).
