BLOG: Guillermo del Toro Confirms PACIFIC RIM 2
|In what appears to be a perfectly timed message just before TRANSFORMERS Age of Extinction makes its U.S. premiere, Guillermo del Toro makes an announcement for what many consider as the better Hollywood robot franchise.
PACIFIC RIM 2 is officially moving forward and will premiere in April 2017! And if that wasn’t enough, he also mentions an animated series and graphic novels are both in the works.
The first movie was produced at $190 million, though it only managed to gross $100 in the U.S., international performance tells otherwise with a $309 million box office. He also confirms that he’ll return to direct and co-write the story with Zak Penn, with original writer Travis Beacham still involved in the production.
