Have you ever dreamed about what it might be like to relive the same day over and over again in an endless search for the perfect 24 hour period of existence? Of course you haven't, for that is the plot of much-loved Bill Murray/Harold Ramis comedy classic Groundhog Day, and each and every possible hilarious scenario has already been played out for you via one of the sharpest and most intuitive scripts of all time.
Edge of Tomorrow, 20 minutes of which was screened for bloggers and film journalists at an event in London earlier this week, is like Groundhog Day with stringy aliens and Tom Cruise. Admittedly, there are a few other minuscule differences between Doug Liman's upcoming sci-fi piece and its forebear: Cruise is using his unusual predicament »

Sharon Stone has signed with Gersh, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. A former Gersh client, she was most recently with Paradigm.

Total Film just leapt back from an exclusive preview of Tom Cruise's latest action sci-fi Edge Of Tomorrow, which was introduced by the man himself via a video pre-record (futuristic!), and accompanied by an in-person Doug Liman, who stayed around for a post-footage Q&A. Selflessly, Cruise spent much of his intro talking up his collaborators, describing director Doug Liman's achievements in film - reminding us that he's done everything from Swingers to The Bourne Identity - references which actually turned out to be a pretty good...

HeyUGuys were fortunate enough to be in attendance at a special preview screening of Doug Liman’s forthcoming sci-fi Edge of Tomorrow, as we witnessed close to twenty minutes of footage. On first impressions, it’s safe to say we’re mightily impressed with the Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt starring picture, and while the preview came to an abrupt end, our intrige in the project certainly didn’t, as a Q&A with Liman himself took place.
Cruise plays Bill Cage, a public relations worker suddenly thrust into the middle of an epic war between mankind and extraterrestrial beings, where he meets the courageous Rita Vrataski (Blunt). He soon discovers that he has a unique power whereby he can replay one particular day over and over again, caught up in a time loop that allows him the chance to become more skilled on the battlefield, and more wise to »

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.
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.

If you weren't eating ice cream while watching "Duck Dynasty" on Wednesday (Feb. 26), you will want to after you finish reading this.
Jase goes all-terrain
Willie installs an ice cream machine in his office, to motivate his team. Everyone gets ice cream for doing good work. Jase and Si, however, think it's silly, childish blackmail, andthey're not children. The others disagree. They like the ice cream. I could go for some right now, but I digress.
What does motivate a grown man? The fancy "Argo Amphibious Atv" all-terrain vehicle, or "the ultimate redneck chariot" as Jase calls it, when he pulls up in it like a god. Admittedly, it's a cool machine. Eight wheels, seats a bunch of people and it can go on water and over land.
Jase says it's for the use of the warehouse crew only, within a point system -- each assembled duck call is between 1 and 10 points, »
In Paul W.S. Anderson's new historical disaster epic, "Pompeii," Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje plays Atticus, an African gladiator who needs one more victory in the Roman arena to obtain his freedom. To win that, he must face Milo (Kit Harington), a captured Celt and formidable fighter who thirsts for vengeance against the Romans who murdered his people. The relationship between Atticus and Milo, against the looming catastrophe of the erupting Mount Vesuvius, evolves from enemies to comrades to heroes, an arc that Akinnuoye-Agbaje handles elegantly.
Since launching his acting career in 1994, the London-born Akinnuoye-Agbaje has piled up a steady stream of credits that include films like "The Mummy Returns," "The Bourne Identity," "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" and more recently, "Thor: The Dark World." But the actor may be best known to American audiences for two TV roles: as Simon Adebisi for three years on the HBO prison drama "Oz" and as Mr. »

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck: best friends - or frenemies? The childhood pals jokingly infer the latter in this chuckle-inducing video that's a case study in one-upmanship. The Oscar-winning duo are auctioning off a double date with themselves on Omaze.com to raise money for Affleck's Eastern Congo Initiative and Damon's water.org. The winner gets an all-expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles to see whether these two are really as insecure and bumbling as they seem here.

Zap2it: You're a secret agent in "Intelligence," airing Mondays on CBS, but why aren't you sporting a James Bond tux?
Josh Holloway: Soon. Maybe we'll have some sort of spy situation where we have to go under cover. Spies always have to go to casinos.
Zap2it: Your character, former Special Forces operative Gabriel Vaughn, has a supercomputer microchip in his brain. But besides that, it's an action-espionage show. What made you want to do one?
Josh Holloway: It's "The Bourne Identity," it's "Mission: Impossible," the James Bond ... it's what I grew up loving as a boy with three brothers, playing spies. That's the first thing I thought, "This could be fun." And it's a skill set that I haven't really used or showcased.
Zap2it: I heard you went to Swat school for a movie. Did you embarrass yourself?
Josh Holloway: Probably, but I did well. »
Word has come today that Joe Johnston's Not Safe for Work is going to be headed straight to video come this April. Read on for details and of course the artwork, which incidentally is completely safe for work.

It seems strange to select such a New York City-centric film as Spike Lee's 25th Hour for Lone Star Cinema, but the epilogue for the movie was filmed in our state. So, here we are. Released a year after 9/11, the movie moves at a kind of meditative pace as drug dealer Monty Brogan (Edward Norton) spends his last day as a free man in NYC. He meanders around the city with his rescued pitbull Doyle, and has dinner with his dad (a gruff Brian Cox, The Bourne Identity) before meeting friends at a club for one last fete.
There are a few flashbacks as Monty recalls meeting his younger lady love, Naturelle (Rosario Dawson, Rent) and suspects her possible involvement in the bust that led to his arrest. His two closest friends are from childhood: slick investment banker Frank (Barry Pepper, True Grit) and lumpy prep school teacher Jacob (Philip Seymour Hoffman, »
