Tom Cruise has always been a harsh critic. You only need to look at his alleged rants during the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown shoots to see just how passionate he is about getting filmmaking right. While he previously berated his team for his actions, he has also hit out at his co-stars, as revealed by Emily Blunt.
The British actress worked with the Mission: Impossible star in the 2014 sci-fi film Edge of Tomorrow. Together, Blunt and Cruise’s characters fought to save the universe from a powerful alien force that used futuristic time manipulation technology to win a war against humanity.
Humans fought against these terrifying creatures, the Mimics, using exoskeleton suits to enhance their strength and abilities. However, in reality, these suits were painful to bear, Blunt recently revealed.
Speaking on the SmartLess podcast, he said: “We had to wear these huge suits, which I think would have been cool if we had them CGI, but we wanted to do it in a tactile way. When you hear the word tactile, you think it sounds nice and cozy. No there was nothing cozy about these suits.”
Blunt confessed that she really suffered while wearing the suit, to the point where she was completely overwhelmed.
Blunt said, “He just stared at me for a long time, not knowing what to do, and said, ‘Come on, stop being such a fool, okay?'”
Over the course of the extensive filming of the film, Blunt and Cruise got to know each other very well. And as a result, his story on the big screen was even better. So much so that fans have been yearning for a sequel ever since.
Blunt also spoke candidly about the possibility of a second film in the series. She confessed: “That was an amazing script, but I just don’t know what the future holds for it. I read a script that was in great shape, but it’s just a question of whether that can happen now. I don’t have the straight answer on that. “.
Doug Liman, the director of Edge of Tomorrow, has also weighed in on sequel plans.
He previously told Collider: “It’s one of those things where if Tom and Emily and I were to say, ‘We’re ready to pull the trigger on this script,’ it’s Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt: the movie is made. That’s more or less how Hollywood works. The stars are the gatekeepers. If you can get Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt to commit to the movie, it will happen.”
He added: “For [the first movie], the script was not there when we started shooting. Tom and I often laugh about this, that during the preparation of that film we said to ourselves, ‘There’s nothing like an imminent start date for shooting to put pressure on getting the script right.’ And then as we were shooting the movie, we’d say to ourselves, ‘There’s nothing like an impending completion date to really push to finish the script. Then as we’re editing the movie, we say, ‘There’s nothing like an imminent release date to force you to get the script right. These are really big, imaginative movies.”
Edge of Tomorrow is now available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
