While director Guillermo del Toro‘s lavish Kaiju movie was noticeably divisive online, it was embraced worldwide and became a modest box-office hit.

The Legendary Pictures production earned enough cash in China to produce sequel, Pacific Rim Uprising, which didn’t live up to the charm and personality of the first movie.

A disappointment for any fan of the original movie, especially considering del Toro delivers the goods with sequels — Hellboy II: The Golden Army and Blade II.

del Toro’s sequels get deeper, weirder, and substantially improve upon what came before, which I have no doubt he would’ve done with a Pacific Rim sequel.

I talked to Guillermo about it early on, because there were a ton of crazy ideas for where it could go.

I don’t know if you could just jump right in and do that, but maybe after a few movies.

While I wish del Toro got the chance to work more of his magic on this franchise, at least we haven’t reached the end of Pacific Rim stories. »
