Trailer for your Weekend: Edge of Tomorrow

EOT poster

We all know you can’t judge a film by its trailer. Hopefully for the makers of Edge of Tomorrow, that proves accurate in this case. Starring Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise, this film is aiming to be a big budget breakout film this year. And whilst there is a lot of potential in the cast and plot, I am not a fan of what they have chosen to show us in this trailer. Whilst I think the music choices made throughout are pretty gnarly, I don’t like the convoluted conveying of the narrative. Not a good sign when the story is confusing in the trailer. The other issue is whether the film will be differentiating it from other similar films of recent years. There are hints of Source Code (2011), Elysium (2013) and perhaps even Pacific Rim (2013) in the trailer and those marketing the film would be wise to start showing some truly original content to potential attendees of the film. What do you guys think about this one?

  1. I agree. Movie might be great, but the trailer is underwhelming.

    1. Definitely a weak trailer for a film that should be pretty spectacular if done well.

  2. Groundhog Day meets Starship Troopers with two actors I hate? Pass.

    1. Haha, fair comments. Not sure that I hate Cruise or Blunt. But there are a lot of films involving them (particularly Cruise) where I don’t think they manage to convince me of the character they are playing.
