This week in theaters, two highly different movies arrive: the first, a science-fiction action-adventure; the second, an uplifting story of hope rising against all odds.

After hostile aliens attack Earth, one inexperienced soldier dies trying to fight them—only to return, alive, at the start of the day he died, caught in some kind of time loop where he relives that day over and over again. But soon he starts learning how to beat the aliens. (See more on 'Edge of Tomorrow' here.)
