Pet Peeve : Edge of Tomorrow is the movie, Live Die Repeat is the tagline. It's kind of like going to see Speed, but calling it Heartstopping Thrillride.

I guess it depends if you saw it in the theatre or on DVD.

Studios often lament the fact they have to remarket a movie when it’s about to hit home entertainment platforms, costing them millions in extra advertising dollars.

But in “Edge of Tomorrow’s” case, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment appears to be embracing the chance for a redo and is touting the film’s “Live Die Repeat” slogan over the film’s actual title.

Can't believe that they rebranded it and didn't go with All Your Need is Kill. But yeah, underrated movie. I think they slightly missed on the ending, but really smart and well-executed movie regardless.

Regarding the ending:
Spoiler!

I don't know the movie.

If I was randomly searching for something to watch,
I'd scroll right by Edge of Tomorrow.
"Live Die Repeat" would likely get me to stop and see what the movie is.

Live Die Repeat is a significantly better title than Edge of Tomorrow. That’s a milquetoast movie name.

According to Wikipedia

Quote:
The film was initially titled All You Need Is Kill after the light novel, but as filming was ending in July 2013, Warner Bros. changed the title to Edge of Tomorrow; Warner Bros. president Sue Kroll said the title was changed partly due to "negative chatter" about the word "kill" in the title. Doug Liman, who said he rejected the title All You Need Is Kill because it "didn't feel like it was the tone of the movie I had made", wanted to rename the film Live Die Repeat, but Warner decided to use that just as the tagline
Both other options were better than Edge of Tomorrow imo. Live Die Repeat would at least be unique, Edge of Tomorrow just sounds so generic

"All you need is kill" doesn't actually make any sense, in general or in connection with the movie. I feel like "Live Die Repeat" is better but maybe a bit too on the nose. Either way it is a fun flick. And Emily Blunt sure knows how to do a T2 Linda Hamilton impression.

I am not a fan of Live. Die. Repeat, but it can easily replace all of those Live, Laugh, Love signs people slap up in their kitchens and bathrooms.

The only strike against the movie IMO is the fact that Emily Blunt can't seem to keep her mouth shut. I don't mean she talks too much...I mean every shot of her just standing there she has her mouth about 3/4" open. Like she doesn't just pull up her bottom jaw to close her mouth. It's super distracting and annoying.

I don't have much to add other than Live. Die. Repeat. seems like the antithesis to Eat. Pray. Love. Some hipster theater should do a stupid title double-header.

Emily Blunt, mouth breather.

Yeah, and you just know it would dry out her lips so they'd be all chapped. Throw in some halitosis for good measure. I could see her eating cheese slices right out of the wrapper, too. Eww.

Yeah, it was the name of the book, but I agree it doesn't sound great. Maybe it sounds better in Japanese and the translation is just weird
