In the years since Edge of Tomorrow hit theaters, director Doug Liman and actors Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt have often expressed interest in a comeback.
The chance of such a sequel is not too great. Not only do the agendas of the three have to fit together (which is hard enough with such big Hollywood stars), but the budget also seems too high for the sequel. In any case, according to Emily Blunt, it has to do with the fact that there hasn’t been a sequel yet.
“To be honest I think the film is too expensive”, Blunt started opposite the Howard Stern Show. “I just don’t know how we do it.”
The production budget for the first film was around $ 200 million, which was necessary to bring the many fierce battles to life. But the film only grossed $ 100 million in the United States and around $ 270.5 million in the rest of the world. So a setback.
Edge of tomorrow is taking place in the near future. The world has been attacked and largely conquered by aliens. A soldier gains the ability to come back to life every time he dies and can thus win the battle.
