Set in a near future in which an alien race hits the earth with a force unbeatable by any human army, Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) is plunged into what turns out to be a suicide mission.

Killed within minutes, he finds himself thrown into a time loop, forcing him to live out his death again and again.

But with the help of Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt), Cage learns to fight enemy aliens with increasing skill.

Helmed by Doug Liman, director of The Bourne Identity and Mr and Mrs Smith, the film's screenplay has been adapted from the novel All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.

The cast includes Bill Paxton (Aliens, Big Love),  Gurry (Australian TV’s Tangle), Dragomir Mrsic (Snabba Cash II), Charlotte Riley (World Without End), Jonas Armstrong (BBC’s Robin Hood), and Franz Drameh (Attack the Block).

Edge of Tomorrow is released in UK cinemas and IMAX on 30 May, 2014.
