CineFile: general film geekery
The new Tom Cruise vehicle Edge of Tomorrow hit theaters today! It’s a blast and plays with the conventions of time-travel in some very clever and truly cinematic ways. My co-worker at Fandango MOVIECLIPS cut together this “Deja-Vu Mashup” which pairs Tomorrow with the Bill Murray classic Groundhog Day. Both films essentially feature their protagonists stuck in a loop of living the same day over and over… and over. Thus, the pairing and juxtaposition of these two films presents some wonderful similarities and connections. Other time travel or otherwise mind-bending films are added to the mashup for good measure. Enjoy, though it might mess with your head a little bit!
