Doug Liman Talks About How Video Games Influenced Edge of Tomorrow
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.30.2014

In an interview with IGN, director Doug Liman spoke about the influence that video games have had on his work, including Edge of Tomorrow. The film, which will be released on June 6, is an adaptation of Hiroshi Sakurazaka's novel All You Need Is Kill.

He said: "I've tried to bring the best aspects of video games, the most immersive aspects of video games, into my movies. Just that first-person experience of… you're not watching other people do it, you're on the beach, with Tom Cruise, in Edge of Tomorrow. You're in the trenches with him. You're fighting the aliens with him. Not that you're watching other people having the fun – you're having the fun. You're having the thrills because you're really there. I just haven't done that off of a project that actually started as a video game. There's also the frustration of getting pretty far along, then getting killed and getting sent all the way back. So much of the humour that's in Edge of Tomorrow is when you get sent back to the beginning. Which is a frustrating thing in a video game, and is just as frustrating for Tom Cruise's character Cage, in particular because he's got people like Bill Paxton, who is your worst nightmare of a drill sergeant. Suddenly you've got to listen to this guy drone on about how dying in battle is this great experience and something to aspire to."
