When news broke that more Pacific Rim was coming, Guillermo del Toro wasn’t kidding around. He’s in pre-production on the movie, Pacific Rim 2, which will be out April 2017.

It is presented by del Toro and features a story by screenwriter Travis Beacham. Below, see some more images and read more about the Pacific Rim comic book. Read More »
Guillermo del Toro is pulling together the script for Pacific Rim 2, and it sounds like Charlie Day and Burn Gorman will be back for the sequel. Their characters are being written into the script, at least. We know that some of the characters from the original film won’t be back in a big way for the sequel, though they may show up in a proposed third movie. So the inclusion of those two guys is one of the first real bits of info we have about the second chapter of the big robots vs. monsters series that was given a shot in the arm with the formal announcement of the big-screen sequel.

With an April 7, 2017 release date already locked in, it’s no surprise Guillermo del Toro is deep into work on Pacific Rim 2. What’s a bit more intriguing is that he’s planning the movie with an eye on the sequel, the not-yet-greenlit Pacific Rim 3.
Whereas Pacific Rim 2 is expected to differ quite a bit from Pacific Rim 1, it seems 2 and 3 may be more closely linked. Hit the jump for del Toro’s updates on both Pacific Rim sequels. (Note: The above image is fan art and not an official release. But it sure looks cool, doesn’t it?)

Saturday afternoon at the end of Legendary Pictures’ Hall H presentation at 2014 San Diego Comic Con International, Studio head Thomas Tull left the crowd with one last surprise — an announcement teaser for a King Kong prequel Skull Island. Instead of surprise and excitement, the crowd was left confused. That was definitely not the reaction that Legendary had intended. Why did the packed Hall H crowd have that reaction? I have a theory about the Skull Island confusion which you can read, after the jump.

The news of a Pacific Rim sequel came with good and bad details. That it’s happening at all is the biggest bit of good news. Guillermo del Toro‘s film wasn’t a massive hit in the United States but did well enough internationally to warrant a sequel. The downside is that fans will have to wait about three years to see the film. Pacific Rim 2 is scheduled for release April 7, 2017.
In the meantime we’ll get two other del Toro movies as well as a nice, sizable appetizer in the Pacific Rim world. A Pacific Rim animated series is in the works. In a new interview, the producer/writer/director explained what the animated series might entail. He exampled how the story would be told and where it might air. Development is still in very early days, but the idea is to bridge the gap between the first and second movie in serialized form. The show is currently being shopped around. Read more about the Pacific Rim animated series below. Read More »
