With PACIFIC RIM in cinemas at present, director Guillermo del Toro is already looking at ways to handle a possible sequel. Del Toro has been speaking to MTV about a follow-up film. Be warned, major SPOILERS lie ahead if you’ve yet to see PACIFIC RIM.

On a sequel, del Toro revealed, “I’ll tell you a couple of things. We will have Gipsy 2.0 for sure. Second thing is you’re gonna see a merging of Kaiju and Jaeger. And that is quite special.

Well, the start riffing on that and you’ll get to something.”

As to whether a PACIFIC RIM 2 will actually happen, that’s still to be seen. The first film has currently taken $178.5 million across the globe, which really isn’t as much as it sounds in terms of what del Toro and Legendary Pictures would have been hoping for. Still, a sequel is a possibility...
