Tom Cruise pushes 'Edge of Tomorrow' to its limits

HILARY FOX Associated Press Published:

LONDON (AP) -- Three premieres, in three cities, on only one day. Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are pushing their own limits to promote their latest movie "Edge of Tomorrow."

The tour starts today with an early London premiere, moving on to Paris and ending in New York.

Film stars are used to jetting around to launch their projects but not usually on the same day.

Blunt, the 31-year-old actress known from "The Devil Wears Prada," says it is typical of her co-star.

"When I heard about the premiere idea of three in one day I just said 'that's Tom's idea,'" she says.

"Edge of Tomorrow" is a combination of action, science-fiction, a war movie and a love story, directed by Doug Liman.

Cruise, 51, plays military PR man Major William Cage, a quick-talking coward who is forced to fight for humanity against an alien invasion. Blunt is the poster girl for the army, a highly-trained warrior and the only person who can help him when he starts living the same day over and over again, never reaching the tomorrow of the title.

'Edge of Tomorrow' opens in the U.S. on June 6.
