Even aliens are afraid of Tom Cruise

If you've kept up with the geek sites, then you probably know that sci-fi fans are high on the new Tom Cruise film "Edge of Tomorrow." Check out this one from io9. Which is good because "Edge of Tomorrow" is opening Friday in area theaters. The list of major openings are as follows:

"Edge of Tomorrow": Cruise must die every day to save the Earth from an alien invasion. Call it "Starship Troopers" meets "Groundhog Day."

"The Fault in Our Stars": Shailene Woodley ("The Descendants," "Divergent") stars as a young cancer patient who falls in love with a guy (Ansel Elgort) from her cancer support group. From young-adult John Green's novel that The Guardian described as "fabulous."

And at the Magic Lantern:

"The Grand Budapest Hotel": Wes Anderson's latest, which stars Ralph Fiennes as the demanding concierge at an old-world European hotel, has already had a first run. But the Lantern is giving it another try, and it's well worth a view.
