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?
A：The concept lent itself to a truly unique adventure allowing drama and character comedy. I created an unlikely hero in Cage. Someone who starts out as not a soldier, and someone who has never been in combat.
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.
Q: I enjoy all of your movies, do you like China?
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.

In Edge Of Tomorrow, Cruise jettisons these traits from the film’s first scene, and it makes for an action movie that is not only freshly enthralling, but also could usher in a new stage of his career.
The Playlist. It’s a razzle-dazzle triumph, and one we can’t wait to experience again and again and again…
Film School Rejects. Edge of Tomorrow is a massive blockbuster with scale, heart, plenty of humor, and no shortage of coolness. This, ladies and gentleman, is what we call a summer blockbuster.
HeyUGuys. Edge of Tomorrow remains as an unadulterated, captivating thriller, which revels in being such unreservedly good fun.
Io9.com. SEE THIS MOVIE. GO AND SEE THIS MOVIE IMMEDIATELY. Edge of Tomorrow is just a goddamn delight. I felt alive and pumped when I left the theater, so did the other batch of critics who followed me. I want to see it again, right now. You will have fun.

Just saw @EdgeofTomorrow and I want to #LiveDieRepeat @wbpictures best action movie this year @TomCruise review soon! (Filmigos.com )
Just saw an advance screening of it and I must say that I havent enjoyed a Tom Cruise “action” movie in a long long time, and I know everyone is comparing it too Groundhog Day, which is totally fair, because that was my first thought too (and I hadnt watched any of the previews) the action was good and there were TONS of funny scenes, lots of big laughs in the theatre during the movie, and the chemistry between Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise was enjoyable as well!(deesirius)
