Cruise plays Major William Cage in this action sci-fi directed by Doug Liman. An alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Cage is a Public Realtions officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, he finds himself thrown into a time loop-forcing him to live out the same combat over and over.

Each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy. Co-starring Emily Blunt, Brendan Gleeson, and Bill Paxton.
