‘Pacific Rim: Maelstrom’ Begins Filming!

Legendary’s Pacific Rim: Maelstrom has officially begun production with John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Jing Tian, Levi Meaden, and Adria Arjona starring.

Boyega is confirmed to be playing the son of Marshal Stacker Pentecost, who was played by Idris Elba. Charlie Hunnam, who played Raleigh Beckett in the first film, dropped out due to scheduling conflicts.

In the 2013 film that was directed by Guillermo del Toro, as a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.

The film is written by Derek Connolly and will be directed by Steven S. DeKnight. It is set to come out February 23rd, 2018.

    They killed del Toro off. That is something that pisses me off. Yeah i get it that the studio sees in him only a fat and untalentet mexican in their own words, but it sucks. Del Toro is a great movie maker, I hope he will find a worthy studio for his visions.

    As far Pacific Rim 2 goes, i hope it will get the right feeling. The first one had great battles and amazing visuals. I don’t think they will reach it, i fear they make a Transformer copy out of it.

      i hope there are more robot fights, the first one is two hour long and there is barely fight, the other robots that were not Gipsy Danger barely did anything

  • I loved the visuals in Pacific Rim – the thunderous rain and the ocean waves. And the fight in HK with the neon lights was awesome visually. Popcorn fun at its finest!

    The director’s twitter pic makes me fear that this will be a steaming piece of shit.
