Tom Cruise takes a peek over the "Edge of Tomorrow"

Today's cinema show takes in Pascal Vuong's 3D reimagining of the D-Day landings. Our film critic Lisa Nesselson talks about this innovative approach to historical material. The film will be shown at Paris' Géode, before it's screened in Imax cinemas across the globe.

We also talk about the re-release of Sam Fuller's 1982 film, "White Dog". The film provides a commentary on racism and social conditioning, yet it was deemed too controversial for American audiences thirty years ago.

Sci-fi action caper "Edge of Tomorrow" is also in our sights, as Tom Cruise takes on the role of a former police officer who wakes up to an alien war, every day. And we cast an eye over the Champs Elysées film festival here in Paris. The city's most iconic boulevard will be hosting dozens of new releases from France and the US.
