Wow. It’s been a while since I’ve been excited about something trailer-related, but the music in the recently released trailer for ‘Edge of Tomorrow’, starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt is phenomenal.

That drop – especially that drop – at 1:37 into a beautiful, glorious, epically dark but hopefully bright major chord is just bliss. So simple yet so effective.

The actual track feels like a remix of something – with a bit of the building trailer treatment. I’ve been trying to pin down a likely artist for that cool synth vocal, but yet to find out.

The film looks great too – another science fiction blockbuster from Tom Cruise, who seems to be reinventing himself at the moment. Fine by me… his last romp in ‘Oblivion’ was fantastic, with another great score to boot.
