    I thought Edge of Tomorrow was unexpectedly a really fun, unique action sci-fi movie. I thought the humor throughout the film was spot on, in particular with the montage of Tom's deaths at the beginning. I am holding back my hype a bit given Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt haven't signed on for the sequel and the writer signed on is relatively unknown, but there is a lot to work with in the lore they have built up.

      I thought it was great as well. Problem is, sequels for this kind of idea seem to be difficult as the novelty wears off pretty quick (imagine a Groundhog Day sequel, for instance). I'm rooting for it to work, but I'm sure it'll be tough.

        I hate to bring this up, but a Groundhog Day sequel in the form of a VR experience has recently been announced.

          This is a terrible idea and I definitely wanna watch it.

        If the sequel takes place at the same time as the first movie but in a different place or from a different perspective it could be good.

      The major reason for the uniqueness of the first movie was the time loop with a well handled romantic subplot. This cannot be repeated and, without it, the sequel would be a regular military sci-fi. Which can be great, but in that case, why make a sequence at all? Just film The Forever War already :(

    Was so happy to hear this. It's been "in the works" for a long time with Doug Liman teasing it here and there, and even having a script at some point I believe. Edge of Tomorrow is a top 5 action movie for me (the others being Drive, The Bourne Identity, Blade Runner 2049, John Wick), so I'm really glad that it's finally officially happening! I don't think it's going to be as good as the first one, but I'm confident it'll be worth the watch regardless of the cast or production crew as long as Doug Liman is helming it.

      That's pretty similar to my top favorites as well. Gotta love those slow burns. Have you watched any of the other Nicolas Winding Refn movies? They are quite good as well and I particularly enjoyed Valhalla Rising and Only God Forgives.

        I have, as well as Bronson. They're fine movies, but that's about it I think - I don't know how he did it but Drive is simply way better than anything else he's done

    I think it'll be interesting to see what they do! I really liked Edge of Tomorrow, it was very compelling and well done. I also got the chance to read the manga/light novel and it was awesome! I'm not sure where they'll go with the movie now, unless it's actually a prequel!! Dun dun dun! But in all honesty it might be bleh, as unexpected sequels can tend to be.
