'Pacific Rim 2' Gets Release Date in 2017 - More Details Here!

Pacific Rim 2 will be storming into movie theaters everywhere on April 7, 2017!

The original film was a global box office hit and starred Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman.

“The characters I love will return,” director Guillermo del Toro told BuzzFeed in a new statement. “Raleigh (Hunnam), Mako (Kikuchi), Newt (Day), Gottlieb (Burn Gorman) and who knows, maybe even Hannibal Chau (Perlman) – but we are taking them into a fresh territory that will display amazing sights and battles. The first film set the stage and now we’re ready to have a blast.”

It is not clear yet if the original cast will return for the sequel, but it is also unlikely that they would not reprise their roles.

ARE YOU EXCITED for the upcoming film Pacific Rim 2?

    This is the effect of the growing Asian market. This movie flopped in NA, but was the third highest ranked (#1 foreign) movie in China. That was enough to get it a sequel.

    Fast and the Furious was not that big a hit in the US but the studio kept making them and the 6th version made almost 800 million. So of course they are going to do Pac Rim II if there is a chance to grow with each film.
