Inside Pulse Movies and other outlets have been well aware that Warner Bros. made a bad call when it titled Tom Cruise’s recent sci-fi action movie Edge of Tomorrow. With the studio announcing the upcoming home video release (set to arrive October 7th in multiple formats) and revealing the cover art, which you can see below, you get the sense that maybe Edge of Tomorrow would have been better received if it was titled “Live. Die. Repeat.” Those three words were part of the marketing campaign, and by all indications seem like the words Warner Bros. wants you to remember. As opposed to the three words of the actual title, “Edge of Tomorrow.”
Sporting over 90 minutes of bonus features, Edge of Tomorrow was sought to be a summer blockbuster misfire, despite strong approval from critics. In the weeks following its release, word-of-mouth helped to propel the Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. & Mrs. Smith) feature starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt to marginal success globally.
Based on the novel entitled “All You Need is Kill” by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, the Blu-ray edition of Edge of Tomorrow is set to include the following exclusive featurettes and extras (unless otherwise noted):
· Operation Downfall – Adrenaline Cut
· Storming The Beach
· Weapons Of The Future (found on both Blu-ray and DVD)
· Creatures Not Of This World (found on both Blu-ray and DVD)
· On The Edge With Doug Liman
· Deleted Scenes
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 (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 (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.
