‘Pacific Rim 2’ We Hardly Knew You

It appears the science fiction adventure monster that was Pacific Rim, will only have one entry.

The Guillermo del Toro directed film cost $190 million to produced and only grossed only $101 in the states. Overall the Pacific Rim pulled in $411 million, on paper that should be good enough to green light a sequel.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Legendary wanted to produce a sequel and they liked that the original performed exceptionally well in China, where the company is heavily invested, but for now the project has been halted indefinitely and will be pushed back.

The film was schedule for a 2017 release.

At this time the only hope for Pacific Rim 2 is if Crimson Peak, the del Toro directed, haunted house thriller starring Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain, has huge box office success. Crimson Peak will be in theaters on October 16.
