Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt end their 24 hour "Edge of Tomorrow" media blitz in Manhattan. The duo landed in New York around 8:00pm Eastern Standard Time after beginning their journey in London with an early morning premiere and a quick lunchtime carpet walk in Paris. While the idea of three cities and two continents in 24 hours seems daunting to some, Cruise was ready for the ride. SOUNDBITE: Tom Cruise, actor, saying (English): "I said 'let's do it.' I thought it was fun. You know, the whole theme of the film and something I've never done before and I thought it was really unique. And here we are right now, it's kind of amazing. All that preparation and now here we are." The movie features Cruise as Major William Cage who has been forced into a war against aliens who have invaded the Earth. Cage is thrown into a time loop forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over and attempts to save the world with the help of a Special Forces warrior played by Blunt. SOUNDBITE: Emily Blunt, actress, saying (English): "I think the part really, the character was such an incredible action heroine. And you don't come across that in movies that often. And Doug was a huge draw, you know, I love his movies, he's just an extraordinary director." Once again, Cruise literally threw himself into the role, performing most of his own stunts - something the actor isn't giving up anytime soon. SOUNDBITE: Tom Cruise, actor, saying (English): "Haven't hit that yet. Just getting ready to do 'Mission Two,' 'Mission Five.' The next 'Mission' - how many hours I've been up? Yeah, I'm rested." Edge of Tomorrow hits U.S. theaters on June 6th.
