Maisie Williams in Pacific Rim 2

The future of Pacific Rim 2 was uncertain for a little bit, but Universal Pictures is supposedly still dedicated to making the sequel at some point, even though they took it off their 2017 release calendar.

Today del Toro was on a Television Critics Association panel for the second season of his FX series The Strain. After the panel I asked del Toro to clarify whether Hunnam would return, and/or take a backseat to Pacific Rim 2 characters played by Day and Gorman. Read More »
