Based on the acclaimed novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, Edge of Tomorrow finds Earth under attack by a superior alien race called Mimics, forcing the outmatched human race to band together for one last stand. Tom plays a combat-inexperienced officer forced into a suicide mission whose direct physical contact with the Mimics propels him into a Groundhog Day-style time loop, dooming him to die over and over again – and discover the key to defeating the enemy.

Edge of Tomorrow explodes into theaters everywhere June 6.
