There was a time when the Godzilla, King Kong, and Pacific Rim movies all shared the same home. A time when a crossover between those three worlds didn’t just seem probable, it seemed inevitable. That time has since passed—but the director of the upcoming Pacific Rim Uprising doesn’t want to dash all hopes and dreams…
The first Pacific Rim movie left lots of hooks for the backstory of a world where humanity, armed with giant robots, stands at the brink of extinction from giant monster attacks. Before sequel Pacific Rim Uprising hits theaters next year, a new comic wants to delve into the past of its future hero.
Our first look at the Pacific Rim sequel is here, and a lot’s changed since the first movie. There’s new pilots and new robots (with crazy new weapons), but there’s a familiar threat: because the Kaiju are back to wage war with humanity once again.
Come for the giant robots. Stay for John Boyega attempting to pull off the same mustache Idris Elba valiantly wore in the first Pacific Rim. It’s all good.
We knew already that Charlie Hunnam wouldn’t be returning for the sequel—but the fate of his fellow star Rinko Kikuchi was left nebulous, even as we were introduced to the next generation of mecha pilots for the sequel, lead by John Boyega. But the film’s new official synopsis reveals that Mako Mori is back in action.
Yesterday, Legendary unveiled the host of new Jaegers that will be the giant, metallic stars of Pacific Rim Uprising. Now we’ve got some official pictures of the toys that let us get up close and personal with the next iteration of badass, big-screen, monster-fighting mecha.
Pacific Rim brought us the Jaegers, wonderful multi-pilot mecha that it then proceeded to mostly turn into scrap over the course of the movie. Obviously, that means the sequel’s going to need some new ones, and now we finally have a good look at the robots joining the Gipsy Avenger in Uprising—and my god are the…
Considering the first Pacific Rim movie ended with all of its awesome giant robots, the Jaegers, blown up or ripped to shreds (or ripped to shreds and then blown up), the sequel’s going to be needing some new ones to take their place. We finally have some solid details on the main robot of the film, and it sounds …
He’s definitely looking a bit down in the dumps for someone who’s presumably about to spend a large part of a movie beating the crap out of giant monsters in an equally giant, rad-looking robot.
They are Godzilla: King of Monsters and Pacific Rim: Uprising, respectively. But while Pacific Rim: I Bet They’ll Change This Again’s new title is a bit boring, there’s some delightful backstory to Godzilla 2's.
Uncancel the apocalypse everyone, so we can cancel it again: The Force Awakens and Attack the Block star John Boyega will lead the cast of Pacific Rim 2.
If this was on television when I was an eight year-old kid, I’m certain it would be my favorite thing ever.
The on-again, off-again sci-fi sequel Pacific Rim 2 is back from the depths. Deadline reports Legendary Pictures has hired Steven S. DeKnight to direct the film, which will be produced by the first film’s director, Guillermo del Toro.
Pacific Rim fans will know that setting any piece of tie-in material before the events of the movie usually can only end up one way: with most of its protagonists and their lovely giant robots dead, leaving Humanity’s defenders on the brink in time for the movie. The new Pacific Rim comic knows that too, and uses it…
Early in Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak, protagonist Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) eagerly gives a story she’s written to a publisher. But he sends her away, with the condescending instruction that ladies should really be writing romance stories, not ghost stories. She balks at the critique—not just because he’s a…
A sequel to Pacific Rim might be a long ways off, but it’s still on director Guillermo del Toro’s mind. And, he has a fantastic idea for who he wants behind the controls of a new Jaeger.
Fans who’ve been polishing their Jaeger waiting for the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 film, Pacific Rim, may want to slow down. It seems the sequel, which was set for a 2017 release date, has been “halted indefinitely” and may not get made at all.
Guillermo del Toro has only made eight films. Sure, a ninth is on the way (with 10 on deck after that), but he’s become such a well-known pop culture persona, that number feels low. Maybe it’s because his movies are so rich, they stay with us long after we leave the theater.
