Pacific Rim 2 delayed indefinitely
The sequel to big-budget action thriller Pacific Rim has been delayed indefinitely, it has emerged overnight.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the sequel to the mega-monster movie, which had been slated to arrive in August of 2017, has been pulled from Legendary Pictures' schedule and no replacement date has been put in.
The movie starred Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi and Idris Elba and was set in the future where a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, in the midst of that a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon and try to save humanity.
The movie grossed $411 million at the box office and was a particular hit in China, leading a sequel to be ordered, but it seems Universal, who would be producing the sequel, have had second thoughts about that, or at least doing one in time for a 2017 release date.
