Pacific Rim: Uprising Release Date Moved Back Again

Legendary-Universal’s “Pacific Rim: Uprising” has been delayed yet again: moving back a month from Feb. 23 to March 23.

The sequel stars John Boyega of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in the follow-up to 2013’s “Pacific Rim.” Steven S. DeKnight directs from a script he co-wrote with Emily Carmichael, Kira Snyder, and T.S. Nowlin from a story by Guillermo del Toro.

The cast includes Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Cailee Spaeny, Rinko Kikuchi, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona, and Charlie Day.

Producers are del Toro, Jon Jashni, Femi Oguns, Mary Parent, and Thomas Tull. The film is set a decade after the original, which took place in 2025. Boyega is playing the son of Idris Elba’s character, who sacrificed his life in the first film.

“Pacific Rim,” directed by del Toro, starred Elba, Kikuchi, Day, Charlie Hunnam, and Robert Kazinsky. It was set in the near future with Earth at war with the Kaiju, monsters that emerged from an inter-dimensional portal at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. It grossed $411 million at the worldwide box office.

The sequel was shot in Australia and China. It will face competition on March 23 from Lionsgate’s revamped “Robin Hood,” Paramount’s “Action Point” and “Sherlock Gnomes,” and an untitled animated movie from Fox and Blue Sky.

Legendary and Universal had originally scheduled the release for April 7, 2017, and then Aug. 4, 2017 before deciding in 2015 to put the project on hold.

Pacific Rim: Uprising officially wraps filming

Production has just concluded on the upcoming Pacific Rim: Uprising, and John has posted one more new photo on location in Qingdao, China. It makes sense that the production would shoot in China, as over a quarter of the first film’s box office ($111 million) came from the country.

Pacific Rim Sequel Titles Revealed

Good news about John’s project Pacific Rim 2. The official movie title was disclosed

Sweet merciful Gamera, this is good newsPacific Rim 2, the sequel to the giant robots vs giant monsters movie that has been dead and alive and dead and alive more times than Godzilla himself (the character, not the franchise, although that’s appropriate, too) is actually, finally happening. Although there seems to be one last little change here, as the film has dropped the Pacific Rim: Maelstrom title in favor of Pacific Rim: Uprising. Word of the title change came via an unrelated press release from Legendary Pictures.

John Boyega will play the son of Stacker Pentecost, Idris Elba’s character from the first film.
