Ready for Pacific Rim 2? Del Toro already has some ideas.

July 23rd, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Pacific Rim was one of the biggest movies of the summer. It’s also quite unique in that it’s a completely original genre movie, not a sequel or a remake/reboot. Now while it did not do well in the U.S., it has been doing well internationally. Its current box office totals are $178.5 million, for a film that Deadline estimates to cost somewhere between $180 and $220 million to make. The movie has yet to open in Brazil, China, Japan, and Spain. So cancel the apocalypse there is still hope for a sequel.

Del Toro recently sat down with MTV to discuss the film and the possible sequel:

“I’ll tell you a couple of things. 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.”

A Jaeger/Kaiju hybrid? How is that even… I even want to know?
