Groundhog Day

with Tom Cruise (that is, without humor) wearing a robotic exoskeleton and set on a futuristic battlefield, and you pretty much have the premise for

Edge of Tomorrow

. Major William Cage (Cruise) is trapped in a time loop, in which he experiences his first-and last-day of battle in a futuristic war against an alien race over and over and over again. He gains knowledge and skill each time, and soon teams up with Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt) of Special Forces to battle the aliens and possibly carve ice sculptures together afterward.

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS

Raspy-voiced pixie girl Hazel (Shailene Woodley) would like nothing better than to be a teenager just like everyone else her age, but there's a problem: She has terminal cancer. So, instead of going out and smoking hand sanitizer with her friends (do they still do that?), she has to attend, at her mother's insistence, a support group for teens with similar health problems. That's where she meets Augustus (Ansel Elgort), a cancer survivor and inconceivably charming lad who unhesitatingly falls in love with her and selflessly devotes his every moment to her emotional validation. Based on a work of fiction by John Green.
