The new Tom Cruise film 'Edge of Tomorrow' is out in China on Friday.

On the release of the film's trailer this is what the actor himself had to say: "Dajahao, today I'm very excited to present to my Chinese fans the exclusive trailer debut of my new film 'Edge of Tomorrow' The film is an epic romantic adventure co-starring the talented Emily Blunt and helmed by acclaimed director Doug Limon, who made the Bourne Identity and 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith.' I hope you enjoy the trailer and I can't wait for you to see 'Edge of Tomorrow' when it opens in China on June 6th. Xie Xie."

The film takes place in the near future where the earth is invaded by aliens. The entire defensive army is wiped out pretty quickly including Cruise however he has the unusual ability that he comes back to life to re-live the battle each day, in a Groundhog Day-esque scenario.

With the help of a Female soldier played by Emily Blunt, he soon begins to try new things each time and develop tactics to destroy the new foe.

From the trailer and reviews this looks like Cruise at his best in an action packed movie which is also full of laughs and romance.

And if you don't like Tom Cruise then you have even more reason to see it as in almost every scene he is Squashed, Burned, impaled, decapitated and so on as he tries to fight his way through.
