'Edge of Tomorrow' preview at WonderCon

The second day of WonderCon 2014 launched Saturday morning in Anaheim, California with Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures taking the Arena stage to showcase their summer slate, including Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow.

"[It looked like] ancient Rome meets Cecil B. DeMille," said star Bill Paxton of why he wanted to be involved with the sci-fi actioner, "and it's got its DNA in 'Aliens.' I figured that was why WB called me up. They needed someone to say, 'Game over, man!'"

Set in a world where mysterious, time-shifting aliens — called Mimics — are in the process of taking over the planet, Edge of Tomorrow follows Tom Cruise as Lieutenant Colonel Bill Cage, an officer who, somehow, gains the Mimics' ability to restart his day every time he dies.

Prime Focus World is the exclusive 3D conversion partner on the film, which releases in U.S. theaters June 6.
