I was playin with your joke a bit, what country do you think would be the most likely to make Pacific Rim other than America?

How about a Japanese adaptation of a Clint Eastwood-directed cowboy movie?

They already have, it was made by the creators of Super Sentai and it was called Spidaman.

If they follow a similar release pattern to the first film then it should hit Netflix worldwide something in mid-to-late-July.
You can probably already stencil in the third & final film for a Japanese release in mid-November 2018.


Anywho, Netflix just confirmed the second entry in the bad anime trilogy Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle hits Netflix worldwide on July 18th.
With the third movie already set for a November release in Japan it’s pretty much a given the Netflix release date will be exactly two months after that in January 2019.

Okay I know both these women from there other shows and I really hope they get decent parts as one thing that really bothered me in the first Godzilla was Elle Brody in my view never got to shown really being a full on medical doctor and saving dying people her character was written in a slightly lazy manner, its why ironically I felt Kong Skull Island was the much better film as it gave its female characters way more leg room while still carrying its story. I just hope Michael Dougherty pulls this off because I loved what he did with Krampus and that his female characters were both funny and shown as brave in crisis.

I doubt you have much to worry about silvermoonlight, I believe they are the leads and Vera had this to say about her character...
