Originally titled All You Need Is Kill, the movie will now go by the more prosaic title Edge of Tomorrow, which makes it sound more like a futuristic rom-com starring and . The newly monikered movie sees Cruise suit up as Lt. Col. Bill Cage an officer in a war against an invading alien race. Here's the full synopsis:

The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

Here's the tweet from Warner Bros. announcing the new title and dropping the first poster:
