Pacific Rim 2 coming in 2018?! Looks like…

June 30th, 2016 by Marc Comments


While the Pacific Rim sequel has been very on again, off again, we knew it was coming after Guillermo DelToro himself said it was still happening (here).

But now, according to io9, the sequel is set for release in February 23 with John Boyega set to save the world… we’re so on board with this!

Read the full post below:

John Boyega will be kicking some kaiju ass on February 23, 2018. That’s when the untitled Pacific Rim sequel, directed by Daredevil’s Steven S. DeKnight, will now hit theaters.

Guillermo del Toro will be executive producing the sequel to his 2013 film, which continues the futuristic story where humans drive massive robots called jaegers against an invading alien race. Actor Femi Oguns is also joining the cast.

The film was previously announced for 2017, but was moved off the schedule last year when del Toro left as director. Now, it’s back and the apocalypse once again begins in February 2018.

Until we get more info or sources, we’ll call this a rumour but, hell, it’s one we like!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
