The Hollywood heatthrob, joined by his co-star Emily Blunt, will meet and greet fans at screenings of the sci fi action thriller in London, Paris and New York on Wednesday May 28.

The Red Carpet Repeat tour will echo the story of the movie, in which Tom plays a soldier forced to relive the same day over and over again in a bid to win his battle against aliens and save the world.

The film begins in London and the first red carpet will be held at 7am GMT. The epic battle takes Tom and English beauty Emily's characters to France and the stars will have to race to Paris in time for a premiere at 2pm (local time) before jetting to New York to meet fans and pose for pictures ahead of a final screening - on the edge of tomorrow - at 11.59pm (EDT).

Between cities, Tom, Emily and the film's director, Doug Liman, will interact with fans via social media using the hashtag #EOTLive.

There will also be a live stream for each of the three events.

Edge Of Tomorrow, which was filmed in the UK, stars Tom as Major William Cage, an officer who has never seen combat until one day when he is thrown into a suicide mission in the battle again aliens trying to take over the planet.

Killed within minutes, Cage finds himself stuck in a time loop, forced to relive the same brutal death over and over again. But with each fight, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski, played by Emily, he learns new skills, taking him close and closer to winning the epic battle.

The international cast also includes Bill Paxton, Brendan Gleeson, Noah Taylor and Charlotte Riley.

Edge Of Tomorrow opens in UK cinemas and Imax on Friday May 30.
