A recent video interview with Pacific Rim director, Guillermo del Toro has shed some more light on the potential route the Pacific Rim Sequel might take, assuming Legendary and Warner Bros. make enough on Pacific Rim to warrant a sequel.

In the video above, Guillermo del Toro explains that one of the main ideas for the sequel that He and Pacific Rim screenwriter, Travis Beacham are working on, will revolve around the Kaiju brain and the deeper mythology behind their existence... Read on for more info and descriptions.


Del Toro explains:

"We're writing... and the main idea that we're bouncing off is the fact that Newt drifted with a Kaiju brain and all Kaiju brains were connected..."

For those unfamiliar, the term Drifting is the process by which the Jaeger pilots connect their brains via the "Neural Handshake". Each pilot can experience the other's thoughts and emotions - essentially like sharing each other's brains. So when we're talking about Newt Drifting with a Kaiju brain - Newt was essentially able to see what the Kaiju were thinking, feeling and planning...

From the Pacific Rim book - Men, Machines and Monsters, here's a scan from one of the pages which explains what happened when Newt tried drifting with a Kaiju brain... He freaked out:


For more on drifting, Kaiju and Newt, catch Pacific Rim in theaters, July 12th, 2013!

Gman2887 The trailer made me more nervous than anything. I don\'t think it will be Transformers 2-4, but doesn\'t make a good case for itself.
Durp004 Personally I liked the trailer I thought it did the basic job of making you interested to learn more
Durp004 Looks like they\'re making Tony the maker rather than Hank Pym
Gman2887 Not to be a debbie-downer, I\'m still excited about it, but the trailer skews a bit too close to Revenge of the Fallen.
Gman2887 I prefer my superhero flicks to not look like a Transformers effects reel, which this certainly does.
Gman2887 I\'m excited about Avengers 2, but a little underwhelmed by the trailer.
Durp004 wow i just looked it up it does look pretty exciting
