More Mecha Action Coming, “Pacific Rim: Maelstrom” Starts Filming

A sequel to Universal Pictures’ blockbuster mecha film Pacific Rim is coming. Director Steven DeKnight and star John Boyega revealed both the title of the upcoming sequel, Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, and that filming had just begun.

 

The original Pacific Rim was a huge success and managed to pay homage to classic Japanese kaiju films while not being too cliched or campy. Huge robot and monster movie fans have a little while to wait still, though. Production has just started on Pacific Rim: Maelstrom and it’s not slated to hit theaters until February 23, 2018.
