Pacific Rim Sequel to be 'Very Different From the First One'

Today has been packed full with news on Legendary's upcoming Godzilla movie and now Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim with some insight to not only the differences between Pacific Rim and Godzilla, but also a bit on Pacific Rim's sequel! Read on for more info...


So, this afternoon, ShockTillYouDrop got the chance to attend a press conference where Pacific Rim director, Guillermo del Toro and Legendary Pictures' CEO Thomas Tull answered questions about Pacific Rim.

When asked about Godzilla, Tull stated that initially it was never the intention to make two giant monster movies, but insisted that "tonally, the films are completely different," He continued on by saying "[Godzilla] is a disaster movie; What if this really happened, what would it be like?".

When talk of Pacific Rim 2 came about, director Guillermo del Toro stated that he and Pacific Rim screenwriter, Travis Beacham are already penning ideas for the idea, adding that it will be "in a very different route from the first one." Del Toro added that there will be a Mexian Jaeger in the sequel, and that initially there was meant to be one in Pacific Rim, but apparently it would have put the project over budget - "We basically couldn't afford it," Del Toro laughed. "He was the most expensive Jaeger."

Unfortunately no talk of a Canadian Jaeger in the sequel yet, but Ian Gibson did promise me we'd see one. So, it's on you Ian - Hozer Danger needs to make it on the big screen! Haha
