Emily Blunt told an interesting story about the making of the fantasy action film Edge of the Future. As it turned out, the director decided not to draw the exoskeletons of the fighters on the computer instead, the actors were given real costumes weighing almost 40 kilograms.
It was so heavy that Blunt even cried:.
“We had to wear these huge costumes, which I think would be great if we made them CGI, but we wanted to make them tactile” “The exoskeleton was so heavy. When I first put it on, I started crying, and Cruz didn’t know what to do”
Fortunately, Tom Cruise found the right words to cheer his partner up:.
I said, “I feel like I’m panicking because of all this shooting”. And he looked at me for a long time, not knowing what to do, and finally he said, “Listen, just stop being such a coward, okay?”.
According to Blunt, such advice from Tom Cruise first caught her off guard, and then made her laugh. But the actual shooting was not funny, because Emily had injured her ribs and collarbone in the heavy suit.
“The Edge of Tomorrow” was released in 2014 and made $370 million on a $178 million budget. Director Doug Liman has stated many times that he would like to make a sequel, but only if Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt return to their roles. However, there has been no official word on a sequel.
