In continuation with their film series, University Programs will be playing “Edge of Tomorrow.” For the first time, they will be hosting the event on the soccer field. Students can watch the women’s soccer team take on the Florida Gators and stay for the movie following 
the game.

Victoria Sims, University Programs’ event programmer for the film series and a senior majoring in business management, said she enjoys movies and selecting them for students. During the selection process, Sims tries to find movies that do well at the box office or might be well-received by students.

Set in a dystopian future, “Edge of Tomorrow” stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt as two militants in a world where aliens have nearly overthrown the planet. Cruise’s character is stuck in a time loop that forces him to repeat the same day after he is killed. He seeks the help of Blunt’s character, who trains him to combat the aliens and stop the time loop.

Sims said this particular film was chosen because it would cater to a diverse range of students.

“It is PG-13, so we can show it outside, and it’s a great action movie that appeals to girls and guys,” she said.

Sims said the screening is great for the University because it gives students the opportunity not only to enjoy the soccer game but to engage in conversation with other students and 
faculty members.

Michael Coffey, a sophomore majoring in electrical engineering, said he plans on attending the event because of all the hype surrounding the film. Coffey said he does not have much prior knowledge of the film, but he hopes it will be worth watching.

“After hearing so much about it, I want to see what it is about,” Coffey said. “I guess it is curiosity, 
I suppose.”

“Edge of Tomorrow” will be shown on the soccer fields following the game at 9:30 p.m. The team’s concession stand will be open until 10:30 p.m. Students are encouraged to bring their own blanket. Tickets are free to students and can be found at up.ua.edu.
