Edge of Tomorrow trailer: welcome to yesterday?

The title is terrible: it’s so generic, and wasn’t there a TV soap called Edge of Tomorrow years back? (It was two soap operas, in fact: Search for Tomorrow and The Edge of Night.) And I keep wanting to call it Welcome to Yesterday, which also would appear to apply.

So: It’s Groundhog Day meets Starship Troopers. I am hopeful because it’s from director Doug Liman, whose The Bourne Identity and Mr. & Mrs. Smith are fab action movies.

Also, my boyfriend Bill Paxton is in this, according to the IMDb.

I’m attending a footage reveal tomorrow morning, which won’t be embargoed, so I’ll have some more to say asap afterward.
