Pacific Rim 2 Will Have a Kaiju-Jaeger Hybrid

Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro shared a tidbit regarding the (fingers crossed) sequel in a sit down with MTV. Spoilers ahead concerning the ending of Pacific Rim… be warned!

“I’ll tell you a couple of things. We will have Gipsy 2.0 for sure. Second thing is you’re gonna see a merging of Kaiju and Jaeger. And that is quite special”, the director said. “Just think about it for a second. We sent Gipsy to the other side, right? It exploded, but whatever remains stays there. We’ve drifted with a Kaiju brain. Well, then start riffing on that and you’ll get to something.”

Number 1 at the Box office internationally this past weekend

While the domestic box office numbers for Pacific Rim is looking bleaker by the day, Deadline is reporting that the Guillermo del Toro directed movie showed a strong outing this past weekend internationally by grossing $35.3 million with 4.7M admissions and 9,610 screens in 50 territories. These numbers are enough to seize the top spot from Despicable Me 2 which held the number 1 position internationally for 3 consecutive weeks prior.
