Directed by Doug Liman, Edge Of Tomorrow released in theatres in May 2014. The American sci-fi mimics the best sci-films such as The Matrix, Aliens, Groundhog Day, and many more. However, it offers something exciting and fresh at the same time.
Edge of Tomorrow tells the journey of a soldier who’s supposedly caught in a time loop. The movie is set in a near-future where an alien race has hit the Earth in a relentless assault. With the help of another warrior, the soldier has to stop the aliens and save the human race while being stuck in a time loop.
With an IMDb rating of 7.9/10 and the Tomatometer at 90%, the movie was a smash hit. It was well-received by both audiences and critics alike. Edge of Tomorrow did a whopping business of $40M at the box office. And now the fans are desperately waiting for the sequel to drop.
Therefore, let us dig into the details regarding the release date, cast, and plot of the upcoming sequel.
The sequel was confirmed way back in 2016. However, it took almost three years for the scripting to finish and for the filming to start. As of now, there is no confirmed release date for the sequel. The production has begun way back in December 2019. If everything goes well, we can expect Edge Of Tomorrow 2 to release by the end of 2021.
What To Expect From The Sequel?
The first film in the American sci-fi franchise showed us a Major William Cage, who is stuck in a time loop. An alien race has launched a relentless attack on Earth, which has led to mass destruction. With the help of Rita, William has to save the human and stop the aliens before things got more out of hand.
The two managed to take down the Omega in the previous installment. The two films will likely have no connection to each other whatsoever. However, we can expect the same amount of sci-fi action and Earth-saving strategies from the sequel as well. There have no details released regarding the plot for the sequel. The cast and the crew have also been tightly lipped regarding the storyline for the upcoming film.
What Happened At The End Of Edge Of Tomorrow?
Rita and Willaim manage to eliminate the Omega at the end of the first installment. However, Cage inherits power from the Omega, which resets the day as a blood transfusion happened between them. The end revealed that Cage and Rita are both alive, and the world is saved without anyone knowing what exactly happened.
There have NO announcements regarding the cast of Edge Of Tomorrow 2. However, Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are officially going to be part of the sequel. Tom Cruise will reprise his role as Major William Cage, whereas Emily Blunt will play Rita Vrataski.
