edge of tomorrow trailer
"Live. Die. Repeat." is the mantra in the new, extended trailer for "Edge of Tomorrow," and that's an accurate description for the film that's been pegged as a sci-fi version of "Groundhog Day."

Tom Cruise stars as Lt. Col. Bill Cage, who's sent to battle a mysterious alien race that's taken over Earth. The bad news: he's killed within minutes. The good news: he's not really dead -- but he is stuck in an endless time loop that forces him to re-live the same battle (and horrific death) over and over.

Luckily, Cage figures out that if he learns enough about the aliens and builds up his battle skills, he can eventually take them down. And it doesn't hurt that he's got the gorgeous Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt) helping him train.

There's a lot of action in this clip, and some of it is admittedly hard to follow, though it seems likely that viewers -- like Cage -- will eventually pick up on everything as it repeats itself. Whether or not that will prepare the average moviegoer for some Tom Cruise-style butt-kicking remains to be seen.

"Edge of Tomorrow" opens on June 6.
