London, Paris, & NYC Premiere for ‘EOT’

THR is reporting that Warner Bros has set up 3 premiere for “Edge of Tomorrow“, and all on the same day (May 28)!

The stars of Edge of Tomorrow will race against the clock on an ambitious premiere world tour that will take them to three cities — in one day.

On May 28, Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt and director Doug Liman will attend launch events for the Warner Bros. film in three different countries, starting with the London premiere at 7 a.m., celebrating in Paris at 2 p.m. and capping off the festivities in New York City at 10 p.m.

In the film, Cruise plays Major William Cage, an officer with no combat experience who is sent into an essential suicide mission against alien invaders. He is killed within minutes, and is subsequently thrown into a time loop where he must repeatedly relive the same day — continuing to fight until he gets it right, a la Groundhog Day.

The globetrotting plans roughly reflect the plot of the film, which begins as Major Cage is deployed, alongside Blunt’s character, from London to France to war against the aliens.

The final screening of the day, which takes place in New York, begins at 11:59 p.m. — right on the “edge of tomorrow.”

Emily to star in “Sicario”

Variety is reporting that Emily is in talks for “Sicario”.

Emily Blunt is in talks to star in the thriller “Sicario,” which will be “Prisoners” helmer Denis Villeneuve’s next pic.

Basil Iwanyk, Thad and Trent Luckinbill and Edward McDonnell are set to produce.

Story follows an officer from Tucson, Arizona who travels across the border to Mexico with a pair of mercenaries to track down a drug lord.

Taylor Sheridan penned the script.

Villeneuve will film later this summer, and then follow that up with the sci-fi pic “Story of Your Life,” which has Amy Adams in early talks to star. That will shoot in early 2015.

Blunt has two tentpole pics set to bow this year with Warner Bros: “The Edge of Tomorrow,” also starring Tom Cruise, bowing on June 6, and Disney’s “Into the Woods,” premiering on Christmas Day.

She is repped by CAA.
