Live, Die, Repeat
The epic action of this sci-fi thriller unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who’s never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop — forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over — fighting and dying again…and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the alien adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

Did you know?
- When Hiroshi Sakurazaka wrote the novel, he got the idea from video-gaming: resetting a game over and over until finding the winning strategy.
- It was never stated in the movie, but in the manga, the reason why Rita uses a melee weapon is because during her “resets” she would often run out of ammo, which resulted in her deaths. Keiji (in the manga) also learned about the convenience of a melee weapon and started using one.
- While filming the car chase scene which includes a minivan, Emily Blunt was instructed to drive fast and then to take a right-hand turn so that the van would shake. However, Blunt missed her mark and she drove the car right into a tree. She later said that it was both hilarious and terrifying, as she almost killed Tom Cruise, who was in the passenger seat, but both of them started laughing after the incident.
- Tom Cruise did all his own stunts; Doug Liman said he could make an amazing career out of it.
