Pacific Rim

Though Pacific Rim was a bit underwhelming in the U.S, where it grossed $101 million, but found huge overseas numbers, particularly in China, where it grossed $111 million. Those numbers were just enough to garner a sequel, Pacific Rim 2, that will be directed by Steven DeKnight. Currently, the film stars John Boyega and Scott Eastwood, and it’s still not clear if anyone from the first film will be returning. While Charlie Hunnam has said he will not be reprising his role in the sequel, Guillermo del Toro that most of the original cast would return.

With most the major pieces already in place, it was only a matter of time before Legendary would be announcing a start date for the production. Now the production company can say that Pacific Rim 2 will begin lensing this November, and Chinese actress Jing Tian will be joining the cast. More on the story below.

Scott Eastwood

Even with all the problems it had, interest in Pacific Rim 2 remains strong. The film recently cast John Boyega as son to Idris Elba’s character, and scheduled a February 2018 release date.

But it appears that he won’t be the only actor to be in the film. According to new reports, Scott Eastwood – Clint Eastwood’s son – may be joining Boyega for the larger-than-life bouts between the Kaiju and the Jaegers. More on the story below.

Pacific Rim

Whether a sequel to Guillermo del Toro‘s 2013 giant robots vs. giant monsters flick Pacific Rim would be made or not was unknown for a time. The movie cost $190 million to make, but, for reasons beyond human understanding, only made $101.8 million here in the States.

Thankfully the movie still did strong overseas, scoring $111.9 million in China and $309.2 million overall, bringing its worldwide grand total to $411 million. Because of this, Pacific Rim 2 has been confirmed and an official release date has been locked in. Also announced is the development of an animated series set in the Pacific Rim world and the continuation of the comic book series.

Continue below to see a video of del Toro making the announcement.

Blu-ray Review: Pacific Rim

Pacific Rim

Pacific Rim
Blu-ray/DVD/Digital l DVD/Digital l Instant
Directed by Guillermo del Toro
Written by Travis Beacham and Guillermo del Toro
Starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, and Rinko Kikuchi
Warner Home Video
Release Date: October 15, 2013

The summer of 2013 will likely go down in history as one of the most schizophrenic moviegoing seasons of all time. The third installment of a superhero franchise avoided the creative traps that X-Men: The Last Stand, Spider-Man 3, and in a sense The Dark Knight Rises handily fell into. A Star Trek sequel four years in the making and with near-unlimited support from fans new and old and a massive budget turned out to be a lazy and uninspired quasi-remake of the greatest Trek feature of them all. Superman flew on the silver screen again in a much-touted reboot that was one-third a good movie and two-thirds a Zack Snyder movie. The funniest movies were R-rated comedies from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean about the end of the world starring predominantly male ensembles.

But most peculiar of all, this was the summer that a movie about giant monsters from another dimension emerged from the sea to enslave the human race only to be opposed in grand fashion by skyscraper-sized machine men powered by mentally-linked pilots co-written and directed by the acclaimed Mexican master of fantastic cinema Guillermo del Toro required a heavy dollop of grassroots support in order to avoid getting trounced too hard at the weekend box office by an insipid Adam Sandler sequel. Despite only making a quarter of its $407 million worldwide haul here in the States – and that’s including the 3D ticket sales – Pacific Rim struck a real nerve among lovers of science-fiction and fantasy movies of the past, and is believed by many to be not just one of summer’s most entertaining movies, but also one of the best movies released this year by far. Now del Toro’s splashy monster mash is available on Blu-ray so that audiences that missed out on seeing it on the big screen can experience the FX-enhanced mirth and mayhem in the comfort of their own homes.

Guillermo del Toro Confirms He and Travis Beacham Are Writing ‘Pacific Rim 2’

Guillermo del Toro Pacific Rim

Thanks in most part to the Chinese box office, a sequel to Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim may actually happen. The film did gross $400 million worldwide, but had a weak $100 million effort in the U.S. Still a $300 overseas box office is nothing to scoff at, and with the film hitting Blu-ray and DVD shelves this week, there could be more of a push to get a sequel to get made.

While the Legendary Pictures and Warner Brothers Studio partnership may be over, del Toro knows what fans want a sequel to happen. So in anticipation that he does get the greenlight, del Toro has says that he and Travis Beacham are writing the script to the sequel.

‘Prometheus’ Scribe Jon Spaihts To Rewrite ‘Black Hole’

The Black Hole

That small Black Hole tease that was seen in Tron Legacy was much more than just a tease, it was an announcement that Disney was going to remake the 1979 classic. Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski would take the remake of The Black Hole using a script written by Travis Beachman. At Oblivion‘s most recent press conference, Kosinski told interviewers that the remake was on. Hours later, THR confirmed that Prometheus scribe Jon Spaihts has been hired to rewrite the draft written by Beacham.

The report doesn’t mention much about the story itself other than that it is going to be rewritten, but we can get a sense of what we might see in it given that Spaihts wrote the script for Prometheus, and who knows how the new film would have ended up if there were no rewrites to it.
