Edge of Tomorrow, or Live Die Repeat, depending on what stage you discovered the movie, is one of the most beloved sci-fi thrillers of the modern age. But even the greatest stories are not without their imperfections. The end of Edge of Tomorrow was satisfying, though, it was a bit confusing if you think about it very much. Fear not! Thankfully, Edge of Tomorrow 2 is happening and, according to Christopher McQuarrie, the ending of the first movie will make perfect sense once we see the sequel.
Christopher McQuarrie, who wrote the first Edge of Tomorrow, is currently busy shooting Mission: Impossible 6 with Tom Cruise. After posting a new photo from the set, he decided to do an impromptu Q&A on Twitter and he wound up fielding some questions about Edge of Tomorrow 2. One fan asked for any hints about the sequel, and that's when McQuarrie decided to talk »
Edge of Tomorrow, which starred Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise, didn't exactly take off when it hit theaters way back in 2014. It barely broke $100 million at the domestic box office on a reported budget of around $175 million. But the film seems to have gained enough of a following after its home release to warrant a sequel. This is good news for those who liked the movie - and there were lots of those people, as Edge of Tomorrow holds a blistering 91% on Rotten Tomatoes and a solid B+ on CinemaScore.
Well, it seems that the movie, which was sort of an action sci-fi twist on the familiar Groundhog Day premise, still has some 'splainin to do. For those who didn't quite understand the vague ending of the movie, writer Chris McQuarrie offers some assistance. Over the weekend, McQuarrie responded to a tweet with:
The end of Edge I will finally make complete sense. »

On your feet, maggot! For a film that arrived with little-to-no fanfare, Edge of Tomorrow performed relatively well – critically, if not financially – three years ago, carving out an impassioned fanbase in the process.
In those intervening years, viewers have long wondered whether Tom Cruise (The Mummy) and Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins Returns) would ever circle back to the battlefield to wage war against the Mimics once more. And though Doug Liman’s under-appreciated gem didn’t exactly set the box office on fire, Warner Bros. and the creative team have pulled together to craft Edge of Tomorrow 2 – otherwise known as Live Die Repeat and Repeat.
One member of that creative team is Christopher McQuarrie, who currently has his hands full with the as-yet-untitled Mission: Impossible 6 in anticipation of its July 2018 release date. That being said, McQuarrie is expected to help develop Edge of Tomorrow 2 alongside Doug Liman, Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse, »

The Edge of Tomorrow screenwriter, Christopher McQuarrie, held an impromptu Q&A session on social media over the weekend in which he was questioned over the film’s sequel, Live Die Repeat and Repeat, confirming the follow-up will explain the first’s ending.
Although the Q&A started after McQuarrie posted an image of the women from the Mission: Impossible sequel in which he takes the helm, the questions regarding Live Die Repeat and Repeat come in thick and fast although McQuarrie has handed over writing duties to Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse, it’s said he will still be involved in some capacity.
Not giving much away McQuarrie stated “The end of Edge will make complete sense” when questioned over the new title for the sequel and final instalment he went on to confirm “I was not consulted”

Here were the biggest stories out of La La Land this week:
Bachelor in Paradise suspended over alleged sexual misconduct
Production on the next season of Bachelor in Paradise was brought to a halt this week, after a producer raised concerns about an alleged sexual encounter between contestant DeMario Jackson, 30, and Corinne Olympios, 25
Warner Bros. first announced news of the show’s suspension on Sunday, blaming it on an unnamed “misconduct.”
Sources later confirmed to People that the incident involved Jackson and a female cast mate — Olympios’ name not identified out of respect to the privacy of victims of alleged sexual assault. »

When Ringling Bros. announced its plans to retire the Greatest Show on Earth after 146 years, animal-rights activists rejoiced, relieved that dancing bears and trained elephants would suffer no more. But “Animal Crackers” has a much better solution, albeit one that demands a dash of magic: In this delightfully inventive, frequently hilarious animated feature, a box of enchanted cookies allows big-top couple Buffalo Bob and Talia to shape-shift into a full menagerie of circus animals. All it takes is a bite of the right cookie, and presto, they become the critter in question!
In addition to boasting a downright clever idea, “Animal Crackers” is uniquely suited to the medium of animation, considering that live action (even heavily CG-embellished live action) simply wouldn’t support all those dramatic transformations — from two-ounce hamster to 600-pound brown bear, for example — and the wonderfully anthropomorphic behavior each of those species requires. The fact that this Spanish-produced, »

It’s no surprise that Hollywood loves its remakes, reboots, and sequels. We live in an era of filmmaking that truly epitomizes that ideology. Between every damn cinematic universe we currently have, it’s easy to see why they’ve grown so dependent on it, but those are films that lend themselves to franchises. Hollywood also has a bad habit of taking films that have no business in getting sequelized…and sequelizing them.
Look at films like Grease 2, Evan Almighty, Speed 2, and a healthy host of others, and you have to wonder just what some folks in the industry are thinking. Of course, sequels aren’t Always bad, but we’d be lying if we didn’t think each film had some inherent potential. This leads us into another film that we never thought would get a sequel.

Tom Cruise’s latest starring role in a franchise-facing actioner may not be the out-and-out disaster so many pictured when the first reviews for “The Mummy” started rolling in (current Rotten Tomatoes score: 17%, his second-lowest of all-time), but it’s still worrisome for a tentpole film meant to launch an entirely new franchise. Box office aside, “The Mummy” points to another troubling element in Cruise’s career: woeful repetition.
Cruise remains one of Hollywood’s last big movie stars, a bankable talent who almost exclusively stars in major films that are expected to make a pretty penny at the box office. In recent years, Cruise has leaned hard on large-scale studio projects, from the enduringly popular “Mission: Impossible” franchise to pricey studio outings like “Oblivion” and “Rock of Ages,” and while he’s still a major marquee name, his career is lacking the kind of daring and exciting choices that once made it stand out. »

Although it was reported back in August of last year that Julie Andrews was in talks to join Disney’s Mary Poppins sequel, the Oscar-winning actress opted against a cameo in 2018’s Mary Poppins Returns, with director Rob Marshall revealing to EW that Andrews was concerned that by making an appearance she could take the spotlight away from her successor Emily Blunt.
“[Julie] had known it was in the works, then we said, ‘We’re doing it,’ and she said, ‘Oh, thank God,’” said Marshall. “Then we said, ‘And we’re thinking of Emily Blunt,’ and she just threw her hands up in the air and said yes. I think a lot of people feel that way about Emily’s work. Julie will always be, for me and for everybody, the most astonishing performance as Mary Poppins, winning the Oscar and bursting onto the scene so brilliantly. But Emily is the »

Due to Disney’s current mood for embracing the past, the House of Mouse will soon give us a (very) belated sequel to the 1964 beloved classic Mary Poppins. Titled Mary Poppins Returns, it’ll feature Emily Blunt taking over from Julie Andrews as the practically perfect magical nanny. In place of her cockney chimney sweep pal Bert (Dick Van Dyke) is Jack, a street lamp-lighter played by Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda.
While speaking with Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview, Miranda revealed that Jack isn’t just inspired by the character of Bert, but has a connection to him within the storyline of the film. That’s because Jack was an apprentice chimney sweep to Bert when he was a boy. Miranda went on to explain that he’ll also share Bert’s love of »

I'm not going to lie, I was plenty skeptical when the news that there'd be a decades-late sequel to Mary Poppins coming out. I also admit that the more I heard about the project, the more I came to think it might not be so bad. For one, Emily Blunt is quite a fine replacement for Julie Andrews, and the fact that the film would be taking on more characters and plotlines from other Pl Travers... Read More »
