Total Film. There’s imagination, spectacle and thrills to spare. There’s a freshness here too that comes not only from the structure, but from Edge Of Tomorrow being a shiny new property in this cyclical age of sequels, prequels and spin-offs.
Empire. A playful and frantic science-fiction twister which mimics the best (Aliens, The Matrix, Groundhog Day) while offering something fresh and – most importantly – thrilling.
We’ve added some magazine scans of ‘Edge of Tomorrow’.
Tom and Emily will be at BBC Breakfast tomorrow, they recorded the interview today in London.
Tom has talked with Weibo’s fans just a few minutes ago.
Here you have his answers to his fans questions:
Q: Why you had been attracted to the role?

Q: What was it like working with Emily?
A: She’s tremendous in the movie. Funny, smart, tough – Emily was great to work with.
Q: the one and only reason we MUST see this movie?
A: it’s AWESOME.
Q: What are the major challenges during shooting EOT?
A：We have a very specific story we’re telling. It’s an epic action adventure, but it’s a very personal journey. We worked for years on the story and the characters.
Q: How do u like ur role?
A: I’m very proud of what the director Doug Liman & writer Chris McQuarrie & I accomplished with these characters. I have never played a character like this before.
Q: Can you describe your role, pls?
A: He starts out as a reluctant hero who is a coward, who through extreme circumstances is forced to carry the torch to try to save the world.
Q: I heard that the suit weigh almost 60KG, how long do you wear it every day?
A: I worked for months beforehand developing the suit with our production team to figure out how we could actually make it work. Yes, it was very heavy. I had to wear it all day for months. It looked real because it is real.
Q: How do you keep fit? You have a perfect body.
A: It’s something that I do as an actor, because my body is the tool I use in every performance, and making films take a tremendous amount of endurance even if there isn’t action. I do whatever it takes to get it done for the characters.
Q: Which is the best part of this new movie that we can expect?
A: We’ve been screening the film for audiences and have had extraordinary response to the story and characters. There are action scenes in this movie like you’ve never seen before.

A: 谢谢! I do it for you the audience. I also want to say hello to everyone out theres & i want you to know how cool it is for me to be able to talk directly to you all right now in China.
Q: Which city of China attracts you the most?
A: I’ve shot in Shanghai. I was able to go to Beijing to visit the Great Wall. And there are many other cities & provinces I look forward to visiting. I’ve enjoyed every place in China I’ve been to and I want to come back & see more.
Q: Do you want to work with Chinese directors?
A: My dream was always to make films internationally. I’m always looking to work with international casts and filmmakers. I think there are many talented directors in China. To just name a few, I don’t want to insult the rest.
Q: You came to China last year, are you into Chinese food?
A: I love Chinese cuisine. The dumplings are delicious.
Q: How many times should I watch this film?
A: This is a film you will not tire of. The more times you see it, the more you’ll get out of it.
Q: How does it feel ‘LIVE DIE REPEAT’?
A: That concept is why Doug Liman and I wanted to make the film. Because every time the character dies he gets better. Think of going through a video game – every time you reset, you can get to the next level.
Q: There are lots of Tom Cruise fans in China, what do you want to say most to them?
A: It’s a privilege for me to make movies and it’s an honor for me to have my film shown in your country and to be speaking with you today.
