two things about Edge of Tomorrow
1) I only just finished my review and posted it, and already I feel like I didn’t get at all the goodness there, and that I need to see it again and think about it some more. So I’ll probably do that, and maybe write something else later in the summer.
2) I feel bad that I constantly, in my head, malign Tom Cruise and then am always surprised by how much I like him in movies. Sorry, Tom.
Oh, and a third thing:
3) Are you wondering why the film opens a week earlier in the U.K. than in the U.S. and Canada? Usually we have to just guess about these things, but the head of Warner Bros. PR in London said at our screening last night that they wanted to get ahead of the World Cup. Those matches don’t start till June 12, but I guess this way they get two solid weekends, not just one, in before everyone is distracted by the sportsball.
