SYNOPSIS

 

The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.  Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

Did anyone actually see this one in 3D and if so is it 3D or 2.5D. ?

Malcolm, I saw it twice in digital IMAX 3D, this is what I thought.

 

I didn't think the 3D was great, my experience of it had the 3D quality kind of disappearing throughout, where it might seem reasonably present in one scene and then almost non-existent in the next.  At least part of that I initially chalked up to a theater error -- when I saw it the first time, the house lights came on about halfway through the movie, and stayed up until the end.  Having a dark room is important to 3D presentation quality so when the lights went up, the 3D quality went down.  But when I saw it a second time, although the presentation was clearly better, the 3D still was not all that.

 

On the other hand, I threw in my two cents on the movie review thread here, and it seemed like my feelings about the 3D might have been in the minority, other people were reporting a more pleasing, consistent experience.

 

It was shot on film and post-converted to 3D.  Of this year's post-conversions that I've seen, I thought "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" and "Guardians Of The Galaxy" were the best.  The two 3D native films I was most looking forward to turned out to be massive disappointments (strictly in terms of 3D quality - I thought they were really good movies), and both were from Fox - "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" and "X-Men: Days Of Future Past".  Maybe Fox has adopted an in-house style of flat looking 3D?  I'd say "Edge Of Tomorrow" had 3D that was probably on par with those films.

 

If I buy this movie (and I probably will), I'll get the 3D copy and watch that way.  Generally I prefer to watch the 3D version over the 2D version, even when the 3D doesn't add all that much.  (It's probably a similar preference to people who prefer to listen to a 5.1 surround track of a film originally done in mono, even when there's not much going on in the surround track.)  But if my friends or family were to ask me if I honestly thought they needed to see this movie in 3D, I'd say no.

I thought this might be the first Dolby Atmos release.

In some European markets its being retitled Live Die Repeat: Edge Of Tomorrow which is a little strange as it made approx 75% of its box office outside US in the same markets with the same title in all :rolleyes:

Malcolm,

I saw it on both the IMAX 3D and an excellent 2D presentation (on a very large screen with Dolby Atmos). I found the 3D visuals to be more immersive. Maybe even much more, but it wasn't in your face 3D.

This is basically a retitling. They've just included the original title near the very bottom so everyone knows exactly what it is.

 

One of my top three favorite films of 2014. Most likable Tom Cruise has been since Risky Business. Tied for sci-fi movie-of-the-year alongside Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Snowpiercer, if Interstellar doesn't raise the bar (and it probably will).

 

It's hard to think of another movie that has been effectively "retitled" for its post-theatrical release. But "Live Die Repeat" is a MUCH better title, and what the movie should've been called in the first place, but skittish corporate execs always hedge their bets.

It's lame but I can understand their trepidation. Not like I have any inside info but I imagine that they feared that there'd be another loser shooting up a school or a mall a day or two before the movie opened and they'd be stuck selling a movie called Live Die Repeat at the same time people are seeing horrific 24 hour news coverage of a tragedy.

Yep.  Which is the reason that JACK THE GIANT KILLER was changed to JACK THE GIANT SLAYER,  And the guns in the animated BEWARE THE BATMAN series had to be altered so that the gun barrels fcould be changed from the normal round shape to become square or rectangular.

I didn't see this film, but the trailer saw and the synopsis I read made me think it was THE AMERICANIZATION OF EMILY meets SOURCE CODE.  Was it?

I do find it interesting that WB decided to trot our the old practice of re-titling a film in the marketing (e.g., Ace in the Hole becoming The Big Carnival).


"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

I don't understand what everyone is talking about when they say the movie is being "retitled."  The Blu-ray cover appears to have a gigantic version of the "Lie Die Repeat" slogan that was used in marketing the movie, but even some of the theatrical posters featured that phrase more prominently than they did the title.  The press release, and Amazon's listing, both still call it "Edge of Tomorrow."

I'm sure the movie itself still carries the Edge Of Tomorrow title but if someone wasn't familiar with the movie and looked at the cover, they would have to think it was called LIVE DIE REPEAT. Even if they looked at the smaller print, they would think that it stars Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt and someone with the odd name of Edgeoftomorrow. :)
