Pacific Rim was like watching your childhood fantasies come to life in giant fantastic ridiculous perfection. When there were so many more advanced ways of destroying each other, giant cross dimensional monsters and giant man made robots spent the entire moving beating each other up with whatever weapon happened to be closest at hand. Barring that they just used their fists. It was never a sophisticated movie it was just plain fun!
Now all that fun is going to be returning to a theater near you on February 23, 2018. Star Wars: The Force Awakens star John Boyega is on board to star as the son of Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba) from the first Pacific Rim.
Legendary’s kaiju vs robots sequel from director Steven S. DeKnight begins filming in the fourth quarter of 2016 with Del Toro producing along with Thomas Tull, Mary Parent & Jon Jashni. Cale Boyter will serve as executive producer.
