Pacific Rim: Uprising

The nostalgia fest masquerading as a movie won the top spot at the box office. Ready Player One took in $41.21M at the U.S. box office and a further $128M foreign for an opening weekend of $181.21M. Second place went to Acrimony with $17.1M. Black Panther landed in third place with $11.26M for a new… read more

The U.S. didn’t seem to care that much about returning to the Pacific Rim, but the rest of the world sure did. Pacific Rim Uprising opened with a pretty modest $28M this weekend to take the top spot at the box office this weekend. Not a problem, however, despite the $150M budget as the film… read more

Nothing seems to be able to stop T’Challa. Black Panther won a fifth weekend, something that hasn’t been seen since Avatar. It took in $27.02M. Domestically it sits now at $605.4M and globally has hit $1.182B globally. This places it at the second highest domestic gross for the MCU and fourth on the worldwide list.… read more

As much as I want to get excited for Pacific Rim Uprising, it just isn’t happening. Pacific Rim wasn’t deep, or even close to perfect, but it was enjoyable, and it set up a fun world as Guillermo del Toro often does. With different creative folks running the film the second time around, I just… read more

I really enjoyed Pacific Rim, but this follow-up looks like it’s going to fall into the mistake of all sequels and just not do anything worthwhile. The more footage I see of Pacific Rim Uprising, the more I just am not feeling it this time. The Jaeger designs this time are uninspired. The Kaiju look… read more


We’ve taken a look at each of the films of the 1st quarter of 2018, but how is each month going to break down? Who will we be singing the praises of, and which films will be leading to studio executives packing up their offices? Lets take a look, but overall it is a rather… read more

Could the giant robots of Pacific Rim some day have to deal with the King of Monsters? It seems that is a possibility being discussed. Speaking with Collider, Pacific Rim Uprising director Steven DeKnight revealed that the idea of Jaegers interacting with Godzilla has been discussed. I won’t say there’s an Easter Egg but there’s… read more


Does anyone remember when you used to just make a movie? No? Just me? Okay then. This past weekend at New York Comic-Con, Steven S. DeKnight talked to Nerdist about his upcoming Pacific Rim: Uprising, and… yeah. It’s another cinematic universe, folks. I’m certainly hoping so. I think you’ll definitely probably get more comics. The… read more

It seems the sun plays a big role in Pacific Rim: Uprising… and I don’t like it. I enjoyed Pacific Rim. I didn’t love it, but it was a fun romp. Part of that came from Guillermo del Toro’s visual style, but it’s clear that Pacific Rim: Uprising is going a different route. To be… read more


The first image of the new Jaegers for Pacific Rim: Uprising have been shown off, and I’m not sold. Licensing Global ran an add looking for licensees for the upcoming Pacific Rim: Uprising – formerly Pacific Rim: Maelstrom – and it shows what may be the first three new Jaegers for the film. The thing is…… read more
