Lots More Pacific Rimming On The Way In Pacific Rim 2 (Maybe 3??)

PacRim

Moviegoers were delivered all of the awesomeness that could have possibly been expected with Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim last summer. Giant robots + giant monsters = awesome. That winning formula, however, didn’t quite break the bank here though. The film raked in just over $100 million domestically, but did monster (PUN!) numbers overseas, which was enough to convince Legendary Pictures that a sequel was a good idea.

Neat!

But wait! There’s More! Del Toro is also developing an animated series that is going to help provide some kaijuey awesomeness while we wait for Pacific Rim 2. Also, it sounds like the director is pretty hopeful that things will go well, because in a recent interview with Collider, he said there may be a third film!

“Some of your favorite characters come back, some others don’t because we have decided that we’re going to shoot ambitiously and say ‘Let’s hope we have three movies,’ so some characters come in at the end of the second, hoping that it will ramp up on the third one,” Del Toro said.

Holy rampaging robots Batman! That’s a lot of great news, because seriously, who doesn’t want more of this?
