Doug Liman explains why he left the director’s chair on Gambit

9 May 2017 6:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As the release for Doug Liman’s latestThe Wall (a war film starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena) quickly approaches this weekend, the Edge of Tomorrow director has found himself explaining his reasons for walking away from the oft-delayed X-Men spinoff Gambit.

Speaking to Collider, Liman stated: “I never formed a connection. Many of these movies, I don’t have the connection on day one, but I find the connection. I just never found it. I don’t always find a connection. I want to make a movie that, if anybody else made it, it would be different.”

In other news, Liman recently confirmed that the long-awaited Edge of Tomorrow sequel is titled Live Die Repeat and Repeat and will reunite both Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. Meanwhile, he also discussed his upcoming DC project Justice League Dark, stating that it will be “very character driven and intimate” and revealing »

Doug Liman Has a Title In Mind For An ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Sequel, And It’s Not ‘Edge of Tomorrow 2’

8 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What’s in a name? Quite a lot, when it comes to the movies.

Though critics hailed Doug Liman’s “Edge of Tomorrow” as a gripping and clever sci-fi thriller with a great concept, it fumbled at the box office in 2014, only making $29 million in its opening weekend against a budget of $178 million. For an action-packed movie starring Tom Cruise, with a buzzy director at the helm, and Emily Blunt to boot, that’s not great.

Many attributed this to the wishy-washy title, which Warner Bros. changed from “All You Need Is Kill,” the title of the Japanese novel on which the movie was based. Liman and the studio then pushed a different title for the DVD and Blu-ray release, stamping every VOD release with: “Live. Die. Repeat.” That title »

Live, Die, Repeat! Edge of Tomorrow 2 is a-go and it has an ‘interesting’ title

8 May 2017 3:38 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

There have been a few underrated blockbusters over the last few years but perhaps none have had the critical and audience response to them quite like Edge of Tomorrow. The 2014 action sci-fi extravaganza, directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) and starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, wasn’t a huge success when it first came out (grossing $370million from a $178million budget) but was a firm favourite of many.

It’s Groundhog Day-esque premise, which saw Cruise’s Maj. William Cage thrown into a war with seemingly impenetrable aliens, only to relive the same brutal battle over and over again – dying pretty much every time due to a strange time loop. His only hope of survival stands with Emily Blunt’s Rita Vrataski, who trains him to become a more effective killer and to help him stay alive.

The film had a great premise, great visual and a compelling, »

Edge Of Tomorrow 2 Has A Clever, But Obvious Title

8 May 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It's rare that a sci-fi movie leaves as much of an impression as Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow, without being a sequel/prequel/remake or based on a comic book (it was an adaptation of a Japanese novel titled All You Need Is Kill). Written by Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation), it stared Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, the former playing an unlikely soldier, who gets trapped in a time loop, repeating the same day every time he dies. Edge of Tomorrow is one of the more memorable alien invasion movies this decade, with its Groundhog Day elements allowing for all sorts of action, horrors, and humor.

Edge of Tomorrow had a title problem. I was working at a movie theater in 2014, and most guests would ask for a ticket for "that Tom Cruise movie." Others called it Live Die Repeat, which was actually the tagline from the poster. »

‘Edge Of Tomorrow 2’ has an official title

7 May 2017 11:44 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Edge Of Tomorrow 2 title revealed by director Doug Liman

Edge Of Tomorrow, or indeed Live Die Repeat, aka All You Need Is Kill will be getting a sequel. The Edge Of Tomorrow 2 title will be Live Die Repeat and Repeat and will be brought to the screen by the first film’s director Doug Liman sometime in the near future. Hopefully.

The great news is that both Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are set to return, a fact that Liman confirmed in a recent interview with Collider.

“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. »

Edge Of Tomorrow 2 has new title, Emily Blunt returns

Simon Brew May 8, 2017

Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are now both set to return for Edge Of Tomorrow 2....

Far be it from us to tell highly-paid marketing people at Warner Bros how to go about selling their movies, but we still can’t help but wonder if all of the lessons of 2014’s excellent Edge Of Tomorrow have yet to be digested. The movie earned terrific reviews, and justifiably so, yet was hurt by a marketing campaign that didn’t quite know how to sell the film.

Edge of Tomorrow 2 titled Live Die Repeat and Repeat, Emily Blunt confirmed to return

7 May 2017 3:53 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Warner Bros. will be sticking with its Live Die Repeat rebranding for the upcoming sequel to Edge of Tomorrow.

Director Doug Liman has revealed to Collider that the film is going by the title of Live Die Repeat and Repeat, as well as confirming that Emily Blunt’s Sergeant Rita Vrataski will be back alongside Tom Cruise’s Major Bill Cage.

“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 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.”

Liman has previously bigged up the project on a massive scale, going as far as to claim that it will “revolutionize how people make sequels. »

Newswire: The Edge Of Tomorrow sequel gets a new name that might be more memorable

7 May 2017 2:44 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Doug Liman’s 2014 action film Edge Of Tomorrow was pretty good, but it struggled to make much of an impact. Many people attributed this to its generic title, which didn’t tell you anything about the fact that it was about Tom Cruise dying over and over and over again while he and Emily Blunt tried to figure out how to kill alien monsters. Warner Bros. even tried to hide the original title on the film’s DVD and Blu-ray packaging, rebranding it with the tagline Live. Die. Repeat. instead. Liman is currently working on DC’s Justice League Dark, but in an interview Collider, he revealed that he has a new title in mind if he gets a chance to make an Edge Of Tomorrow sequel.

Apparently, Liman hopes to call the film Live Die Repeat And Repeat, which is definitely more descriptive than the original title. It ...

Edge of Tomorrow 2 Title Revealed, Emily Blunt Returns

7 May 2017 1:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in October, director Doug Liman teased that the follow-up to his hit action-thriller Edge of Tomorrow will serve as both a sequel and prequel to the original movie. While it still isn't known when this follow-up will get into production, the filmmaker teased during a recent interview that the movie is still happening, and that it will be called Live Die Repeat and Repeat, instead of Edge of Tomorrow 2. Here's what the filmmaker had to say during a recent interview, revealing the new title.

"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."

‘Edge Of Tomorrow’ Sequel Gets A Familiar Title, Emily Blunt Returns

7 May 2017 9:54 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It seemed at one point that Warner Bros. didn’t really love the title of the Doug Liman-directed, Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt-starring sci-fi actioner “Edge Of Tomorrow,” a film that did okay but not amazing business at the box office (just $100 million at the domestic box office, better abroad with $270 million). When the film hit DVD, VOD and streaming channels, the words “Live Die Repeat” were splashed all over the marketing and “Edge Of Tomorrow” was in much tinier letters.

Edge Of Tomorrow Sequel Gets A Title, Tom Cruise And Emily Blunt To Return

7 May 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On the surface, Edge of Tomorrow seemed like a gimmicky sci-fi film at best. Its Groundhog Day-esque premise didn’t do much to rope audiences in, and it also arrived at an odd time in Tom Cruise’s career, following a string of mediocre releases like Knight and Day, Rock of Ages and Oblivion – all fairly forgettable affairs that had everyone thinking that maybe, the movie star just wasn’t the box office draw that he used to be. That’s why it was such a surprise then when Doug Liman’s brainy thriller turned out to be one of the very best films of the year, delivering a gripping and clever ride that’s now sitting pretty at an impressive 91% on Rotten Tomatoes.

For those who haven’t seen the sci-fi gem yet, Edge of Tomorrow threw Cruise and Emily Blunt into “a full-scale alien war, with the »
