Is There Hope for a PACIFIC RIM 2?

While the general consensus of people that saw Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific Rim" felt that it was a fun time at the movies, unfortunately the box office results were still a bit lackluster. That is to say domestically anyway, as the film only made $39 million on its opening weekend on a $200 million budget. Overseas however, some new box office records were set, breathing new life and hope into the film's future.

China is the largest market internationally that filmmakers generally take into consideration when gauging successfully openings overseas. The film racked up $9 million on its first day, making it 23% higher than any "Harry Potter" film.

With this news, it's being reported that Warner Bros. is now seriously considering a sequel. With all the remakes and reboots these days, another del Toro original would be just fine by me.

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
