I did not foresee the day when I would be hosting a movie starring Tom Cruise. He is not exactly my favorite actor. However, the movie seems interesting and I like the director & as a very smart fellow movie group member pointed out … for those of us who are not Cruise fans “we get to watch him die over and over again”. Sold!!!! Meet Information:
I will be wearing a meetup badge. If the movie is showing upstairs, I will grab a table by the windows at the top of the escalator. If the movie is showing downstairs, I will be near the ropes by the concession stand. I will be there 15 minutes prior to show time & we can go on in 5 min prior to show time. No worries if you run late ----after the movie I will wait outside the movie theatre & anyone that wishes to go for a bite to eat / drink can join.
Movie: Starts at 3:30pm. I will be there by there by 3:15pm and we will be going into the theatre at 3:25pm
Edge of Tomorrow Synopsis
The story unfolds in a near future in which a hive-like alien race, called Mimics, have hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, shredding great cities to rubble and leaving millions of human casualties in their wake. No army in the world can match the speed, brutality or seeming prescience of the weaponized Mimic fighters or their telepathic commanders. But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, with no second chances. Lt. Col. Bill Cage is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously demoted and then dropped -- untrained and ill-equipped -- into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Cage is killed within minutes, managing to take an Alpha down with him. But, impossibly, he awakens back at the beginning of the same hellish day, and is forced to fight and die again…and again. Direct physical contact with the alien has thrown him into a time loop -- dooming him to live out the same brutal combat over and over. But with each pass, Cage becomes tougher, smarter, and able to engage the Mimics with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski, who has lain waste to more Mimics than anyone on Earth. As Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated battle becomes an opportunity to find the key to annihilating the alien invaders and saving the Earth.
