The surprisingly good and horribly marketed Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt vehicle Edge of Tomorrow found success after its theater run. While pushing the film on the various methods of home consumption, the tagline “Live Die Repeat” was often front and center, creating confusion about the movie’s actual name. Now director Doug Liman has told Collider the name of the film’s sequel:
“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.”
This is terrible. This is possibly the worst sequel name I’ve ever read, including the Fast and Furious franchise. You can’t just take a tagline and make it into a redundant sequel name. Or can you—
Scott Pilgrim vs The World Sequel: An Epic of Epic Epicness Epicness
I Am Legend Sequel: The Last Man On Earth Is Not Alone Alone
The Fly Sequel: Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid. Be Totally Afraid.
Dazed and Confused Sequel: See It With A Bud, Bud
Let’s hope Limon decides to give this flick a proper sequel name, like Edge of Tomorrow 2: Electric Deatharoo.
