We have the first official picture of Tom Cruise in his latest incarnation - a futuristic soldier, faced with taking on an alien race on behalf of the world.

The epic action of 'Edge of Tomorrrow' 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.

Tom Cruise plays Major William Cage, an officer who has never seen a day of combat until he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to 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 (Emily Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

'The Edge of Tomorrow' is in UK cinemas from 30 May, in both 2D and 3D.
