Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt star in "Future Groundhog Day" (Edge of Tomorrow)

Here's a trailer for Edge of Tomorrow, which hits theaters June 6:

"Future Groundhog Day" looks pretty cool to me.  At first I though the only difference from the original was that instead of Bill Murray trying to get Andie MacDowell to sleep with him, Tom Cruise is trying to save the world.  But then I realized that Emily Blunt has that living every day over and over again thing going on too, which is a nice little twist.

I'm guessing weatherman Phil Connors would have been a lot happier with his predicament had there been a hot chick nearby suffering from the same fate.  Imagine how much fun they could have had together?  I doubt they ever would have even bothered to end the "curse" or whatever it was by becoming better people and eventually waking up the day after Groundhog Day.

If I were Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt I'd probably just ditch this whole war/trying to save the world dilemma, and instead enjoy each other and being able to do whatever I wanted and still come back to life again.

  1. What's so funny, and I feel has been overlooked over the years, is since the original Groundhog Day, whenever people hear that expression, they think about the movie and things repeating themselves. Meanwhile Groundhog Day itself has nothing to do with that notion at all.

    A testament to the greatness of that movie for sure.

    1. Haha, so true. Groundhog Day the movie is actually more significant in our lives than the day itself...
