Remember when we all knew the Pacific Rim sequel was called Maelstrom? Yeah, well, it’s not…
In a new update from Legendary Pictures it has been revealed that it, alongside the Godzilla sequel have new titles and they’re both pretty darned great and hint at the movies’ futures.
[New producer Herbert W.] Gains, who will report directly to Parent effective immediately, was an exec producer on such films as Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, The Judge and Watchmen. His responsibilities at Legendary will include overseeing production of its feature film slate including Pacific Rim: Uprising, Pokémon’s Detective Pikachu and Godzilla: King of Monsters. Gains will also work closely with the post-production team to ensure that the filmmaker’s vision remains intact through production to final distribution.
So, Pacific Rim: Uprising and Godzilla: King of Monsters.
Uprising could mean the rising of the Kaiju or the humans against them, while King of the Monsters, we believe, speaks for itself.
With Legendary building a new shared monster universe with both King Kong and Godzilla at the forefront, we’re still sorry that the Pacific Rim franchise wasn’t involved in that universe, but hey, a bunch of giant monster movies are coming and that’s more than good enough for us… no matter what the titles are.
Do you agree? Let us know.
