Pacific Rim is a robot film directed by Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro with Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, and Charlie Hunnam as the cast. A sequel, Pacific Rim: Uprising was directed by Steven DeKnight and released in 2018, and starred John Boyega, Charlie Day, Cailee Spaeny, and Scott Eastwood. Bith the films are about pilots who control gigantic robot suits called Jaegers that were created to fight the aliens that arose from the sea to destroy life on earth.
A third in the movie series is quite possible. Here is everything we know:
A lot of questions are yet to be answered about the plot, and more background is to be known about Pacific Rim so that the plot for the third instalment makes sense. Jake Pentecost (Boyega) tells Newt (Day) the humans are going to have to take matters into their own hands and go to where the Precursors and Kaiju originated to end them for good. Jake has already planned the previous films in a way that the back story is clear and it also takes a new direction for the future film venture.
DeKnight assures fans that Mako Mori’s story will be explored more in case the film is approved. In an interview DeKnight spoke about his vision for the third film: “There was a very clear idea for what the third movie was. Without giving too much away, I can say getting the band back together was a very large part of it.” The future of the film is still not very certain.
Even if the third film doesn’t end up releasing, an anime series of the same was announced by Netflix in 2018. This series will follow a brother and sister who must pilot a robot to find their missing parents.
