Watch this: Edge of Tomorrow puts Tom Cruise in power armour – and it looks good

Groundhog Day meeting Call of Duty equals something unique in the movie industry.

Earlier this year, we saw Cruise in Oblivion, where technology and sci-fi were meshed together in a pretty-looking (and white!) movie. Now, we see Tom in another sci-fi flick; this time as a soldier.

Time loop of hell

Like Groundhog Day, Cruise's character is stuck in an endless time-loop, where he wakes up and is forced to relive his day over and over again. No love story here ala Jerry Maguire though, Edge of Tomorrow instead has Cruise forced to go through the same battle against aliens (yeah, typical of a sci-fi movie) every day. The trailer reveals that he isn't the only time-traveler too - Emily Blunt (Looper), who experiences the same time loop, repeatedly trains him to be better prepared for that one battle. Both Cruise and Blunt are joined by Bill Paxton (Apollo 13) in their journey to try and end his endless day of fighting.

Edge of Tomorrow premieres in summer 2014.
