Three new posters for London and Paris have emerged for the latest Tom Cruise blockbuster Edge of Tomorrow. Co-starring Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton and directed by Swingers and The Bourne Identity’s Doug Liman, this futuristic action-adventure hits cinemas in IMAX, 3D and select 2D cinemas on May 30th 2014.
Edge of Tomorrow have also revealed plans for a very ambitious première event spanning London, Paris and New York.
On May 28, the stars of Edge of Tomorrow will take part in a ground-breaking worldwide event when, for the first time ever, three fan premières will be held in three different countries in just one day, “resetting” the red carpet as Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt race the clock to make each event before time runs out.
In Edge of Tomorrow, Cruise’s character relives the events of one day over and over in an epic battle to save the world. The story begins as he arrives in London, making that city the perfect place to kick off this global event. All times are local:
7:00 a.m. Inaugural “Come Find Me When You Wake Up” première kicks off on the carpet in London, with a 9:00 a.m. screening.
The film takes both characters to France, where they face off against an insurmountable army of alien invaders.
2:00 p.m. Red carpet in Paris, screening at 4:00 p.m.
The final premiere will take the stars back to the U.S.
10:00 p.m. Red carpet in New York City, with the final screening—on the edge of tomorrow—at 11:59 p.m.
Between cities, Cruise, Blunt and the film’s director, Doug Liman, will interact with fans via social media as they jet from country to country.
There will be live stream components for each of the three events. Those fans on the ground can network via social media using #EOTLive.
The official synopsis for the film reads;
The epic action of Edge of Tomorrow unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.
Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again.
But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt). And as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.
Edge of Tomorrow opens across the UK on 30th May 2014.
