Although Pacific Rim isn’t performing as well as hoped at the box office, the film still stands a chance of getting a sequel based on its strong international performance. They’ve got screenwriter Travis Beacham working on it already and director Guillermo del Toro has even shared what we might see if the sequel gets the green light.
I’ll tell you a couple of things. We will have Gipsy 2.0 for sure. We will have Gipsy 2.0 for sure. Second thing is you’re gonna see a merging of Kaiju and Jaeger. And that is quite special. Just think about it for a second. We sent Gipsy to the other side, right? It exploded, but whatever remains stays there. We’ve drifted with a Kaiju brain. Well, then start riffing on that and you’ll get to something.
The film opens in Japan on July 31st and how it does there may well be the deciding factor for a sequel.
