Emily Blunt revealed on the “SmartLess” podcast that she began crying after trying with her 85 pounds “Edge of Tomorrow” suit for the first time which caused her co-star Tom Cruise to tell her: “Come on, stop being such a pussy, ok?” It was fun but Blunt said Blunt stated, “I did laugh, and then we got through it.”
Cruise and Blunt featured in the action film directed by Doug Liman. film, where they play soldiers from the future fighting aliens. Cruise’s character gets stuck in a time-loop and must relive the final day when aliens triumph and he must change the results.
“We had to wear these enormous suits, which I think would’ve been great if we had CGI’d them, but we wanted to do it in a tactile way,” Blunt stated in the show. “When you hear “tactile,” you’re thinking it sounds lovely and warm. It was not cozy in these clothes. It was around 85 pounds. It was very heavy. When I first put it on, I began to cry. Cruise didn’t know what to do.”
Blunt revealed that Cruise “stared at her,” she added, “I was like, “Tom I’m not certain how to make it through this shoot’, and then I started crying. I told him, ‘I’m getting a little anxious about this whole shoot. He looked at me for quite a while and was unsure of what to do. Finally, Cruise says”Come and get over being a fucking slob I’m sorry, okay?”
“I did laugh, and then we got through it, but the training was intense,” Blunt said.
“Edge of Tomorrow,” is based on the Japanese novel “All You Need Is Kill” by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, made $370 million worldwide at the box office. Liman, Cruise and Blunt have discussed for years whether they would like to revisit the film for a sequel, but the project hasn’t been officially launched in Warner Bros.
“We were hoping to. In truth, I think the film is too costly. I’m not sure how we’re going about the film,” Blunt said in an interview with CinemaBlend interview (via IndieWire). “I find it difficult to make sure that everyone’s schedules are aligned. I would be thrilled. Director Doug Liman would love it. Tom would be thrilled. We’d all like to be able to do this however, until we can figure out the current state of the industry I believe we have to determine what’s the next path to follow for the kind of films people would like to create.”
