When Edge of Tomorrow was released few years earlier, it received positive reviews and ever since fans have been waiting for the sequel. Recently, director Doug Liman teased that that the sequel will be called Live, Die, Repeat and Repeat with all of the main characters set to return.
However, he didn’t’ confirm when the production of the movie will begin although he teased that there will be another character making its debut. He said, “I think what people tend to do with sequels is they just make them bigger. And I’m like, ‘No, a sequel should be smaller.’ You did the first film as sort of the ad campaign for the sequel, so now you don’t need as much action, and in the case of Edge of Tomorrow, people obviously loved the comedy and they loved the situation. So we can do way more focused on Tom’s character and Emily Blunt’s character, and there’s a third character in the sequel that’s gonna for sure steal the movie. We can focus on that. I don’t need an action sequence every two minutes.”
At the time of its release, Edge of Tomorrow became a surprise hit as it managed to have an overall collection of $370.5 million in global box office. Apart from that the movie was praised by critics. Unfortunately though, the series is set to end just after two movies as he confirmed the news during a podcast at MTV. He said, “I see this as a two-movie franchise. There’s the completion of the story we set up in the first movie and the relationships between Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, because, remember, at the end of the first movie, she doesn’t know who he is, and that’s gonna launch us into an amazing new direction. It does actually pick up right where we left off, but it doesn’t keep going forward, because we’d screw with time, because the aliens screwed with time.”
We will need to wait and see how the movie turns out to be as there’s not a lot of confirmation regarding the production of the movie.
