Edge of Tomorrow sequel has a title, sadly it’s not Groundhog Die


Edge of Tomorrow was much better than most people expected. Sure, the movie got a little conventional in the finale, but the first three-quarters of the movie used the respawning conceit brilliantly. When the film was released on DVD/Blu-ray, Warner Bros rebranded the movie as Live. Die. Repeat., which is a more accurate and catchy title. (The film was an adaptation of Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s Japanese novel All You Need Is Kill. That is also a much better title than Edge of Tomorrow.)

While doing press for his latest film The Wall, director Doug Liman revealed to Collider that he’d love to do a sequel to Edge of Tomorrow that changes the way people look at sequels. The proposed sequel would be called Live Die Repeat and Repeat. Here’s Liman in his own words:

We have an amazing story! It’s incredible! Way better than the first film, and I obviously loved the first film. It will be called Live Die Repeat and Repeat. Tom [Cruise] is excited about it, and Emily Blunt is excited about it. The big question is just when we’ll do it. But it’s not an if, it’s a when.

That title’s a bit clunky, but it works. I was lobbying for Groundhog Die. Or maybe All You Need Is Sequel. Or Edge of 2morrow: The Search for Curly’s Gold.

But seriously–should have been Groundhog Die.
