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?
This plays like some incredible lovechild of the gangster and sci-fi genres. If it manages to keep a lid on the inherent confusions that the time-travel subgenre always seems to bring, this could be one of the most electric and original releases in quite some time. Chucking in the star of last week’s trailer Joseph Gordon-Levitt not to mention Jeff Daniels, Emily Blunt and oh I dunno, Bruce Willis certainly wont hurt my excitement levels.
