Film News Pacific Rim 2

Released in 2013 by Legendary Pictures in association with Warner Bros. Then, late June, it was finally confirmed by Del Toro (who was busy finishing his latest film; Crimson Peak ) that a sequel was finally confirmed and that he would be directing it along with the announcement that an animated series will be developed as well along with a continuation of Pacific Rim: Tales From Year Zero ; a graphic novel released to coincide with Pacific Rim.

It is going to be some time until Pacific Rim 2 is released, but in the mean time there are many films still to be released to tie us over for now, and with Pacific Rim already out on Home Media and with Godzilla not far off from being released onto DVD and Blu-ray, we can just watch those two over and over again to our hearts content until the new films are released.

The film was a success financially, but a slightly mixed response from critics has created some doubts as to whether we’ll ever see a second film from the interesting perspective that Pacific Rim takes. This doubt was slightly lifted by star of the first film, Charlie Hunnam recently announced that he brought up another pacific rim film with the director of the first (Mexican director Guillermo Del Toro), and states that there is a release date and a script ordered. It was not until after the film came out that more reports were made.

You see, Pacific Rim was released 10 months before the recent Godzilla , and with Gareth Edwards going to Lucasfilm to produce the first standalone Star Wars film , it could be another four years until a sequel to Godzilla gets released, so by my reckoning about 2018 given what the current standard is for producing films; however this film rim means that when Pacific Rim 2 gets released, it may only be a year until Godzilla 2. I just hope though that development begins on Godzilla 2 now rather than 2 years down the line, meaning that when Edwards returns, he is able to just get stuck in and not have to go through a whole 4 years worth of development all over again.
