I wish I could say I was surprised, but...

Anyway, too bad. For all its flaws, Pacific Rim was fun and I wouldn't have minded more of it.

Yes, that's Kotono Mitsuishi. FujiTV is going for maximum giggles.


EDIT: Allegedly the 15sec promo has Ode To Joy playing, but I can't be bothered to get around the region lock to confirm https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxMma6pN3fc

I found it was fun enough to watch through, but left me with no interest in having more. But I'm just a boring old fart, as they say.

I hadn't emotionally climaxed so much since hearing Nadia music for the first time in the 6 min Eva Q preview. Those commercials are EPIC.

EDIT: Both commercials are in the Twitter link.

Region locks make me sad.

Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

Guess this is the perfect time to say the sequel is back on.

http://deadline.com/2016/02/pacific-rim-2-directed-by-steven-deknight-spartacus-creator-legendary-pictures-guillermo-del-toro-1201708221/

I've never seen 'Spartacus' so I don't know what to think of Steven DeKnight taking over direction from Guillermo Del Toro. On the brighter side, DeKnight is apparently taking over Del Toro's script and won't be adjusting it much because Del Toro is still going to stay closely involved with the project.

Will it keep the "Del Toro" Aesthetic though? The grinding gears, the mostly practical effects, the over the top creature designs?

Depends on how much influence he has as the producer, I guess.

Fingers crossed for a female lead this time.

The new Jaegers are VERY colorful.

Now has anyone asked Pacific Rim 2 director Steven S. DeKnight if he's seen Neon Genesis Evangelion?
