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.
Good news about John’s project Pacific Rim 2. The official movie title was disclosed
Sweet merciful Gamera, this is good news! Pacific 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.
The Pacific Rim: Maelstrom filming began, and we have some footage from the film sets:
