"Pacific Rim 2" has already stepped into the vortex. The sequel to the original 2013 film about humans piloting giant robots to fight inter-dimensional monsters has started filming. Could this be a worthy sequel to the first blockbuster movie? Will there be new exciting things for its fans to watch out for?
Production Has Already Started In Australia
Filming for "Pacific Rim 2" has already begun in Sydney, Australia. This upcoming movie is a sequel to the 2013 Guillermo del Toro sci-fi movie. Steven DeKnight, sequel director, has posted his comments on social media about the upcoming sequel. John Boyega of the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has also confirmed that the filming of the movie sequel is going on. He also mentioned that its title will be "Pacific Rim: Maelstrom."
Tweeted Photo Confirms The Shooting Has Already Started
In his Twitter account, DeKnight posted a photo of a clapperboard which has the label of the upcoming movie's subtitle. The director captioned the photo with "Day I of shooting, The adventure begins.....#PacificRim2." On his part, Boyega posted on his Instagram account a picture of his own script.
Boyega Also Confirmed The Start Of Production
John Boyega will be playing the role of Idris Elba's son. Elba is one of the original stars of the first "Pacific Rim" movie. He played the role of Stacker Pentecost, and he probably will reprise his role in this sequel. Boyega wrote: "Here's to a great adventure ahead."
He rose to fame with his role of a storm trooper turned rebel in the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." In this upcoming film, he will try to cancel the apocalypse by being the son of Pentecost and probably be one of the humans who will pilot the giant robots called jaeger. The inter-dimensional monsters will be back, probably able to find another rift where they could enter the earth again and threaten another apocalypse.
