The last time our childhood dreams were transcribed into a script and then evolved to a film, it came in the form of Pacific Rim. Giant robots versus giant monsters is one pitch that piqued everyone’s curiosity, especially monster movie lovers like me.
Thankfully, a sequel’s on the way and now it officially has a release date of February 23, 2018.
Up until recently, there hasn’t been much excellent news for the sequel. The movie was apparently pushed back and Guillermo del Toro left the helm, but didn’t abandon ship (he is still attached as producer). But now things seem to be getting better, at least publicly, for this machine vs monster movie. For example, they have equipped Star Wars: The Force Awakens star into their arsenal as actor and producer. And Suicide Squad star .
Things are definitely shaping up for Pacific Rim 2, and there’s plenty of time for the film to develop and get great before its 2018 release.
Are are excited for Pacific Rim 2? Let me know in the comments!
