    I thought JW had an incredibly weak screenplay, so this is disappointing. That said, I have total faith in Del Toro and DeKnight, so I remain optimistic.

    Sounds like a case of Remember The New Guy?.

    I liked Boyega in Star Wars and Attack of the Block though. He's fun.

    But then again, it's not like Pacific Rim had any actual real character to root for, with the except of the two scientists, maybe... I think.
    Heck, given the premise, I'm actually surprised that it turned to be... good.

    Looking forward for the sequel: glad it's still being made.

    The only characters of worth in the original were Charlie Day's and Ron Perlman's. Everyone else could be tossed aside and I'd be happy with just them coming back. All the other interesting characters got killed off, so I'm not counting those. Still wish we had more time with the foreign Jaeger teams. They were far more interesting than boring and bland lead characters.

    Oh yeah. Totally forgot about Perlman's character.
    He was just as fun as the monsters.

    And I completely agree on the "foreign" Jeagers.
    It's like they wanted to make this huge movie with robots but then realized they hadn't enough money to do that so they basically got rid of those much more interesting guys halfway through the movie. Still, to be honest, while not really memorable, the cast was at least likeable.

    Can't wait! I love the first film, so hopefully this will be a good follow-up :)

    Wow. I've been in "believe it when I see it mode" since this was announced, but I'm starting to become optimistic that this movie will overcome its messy history and actually hit theatres. This is good news, and I'm a fan of the cast so far. I'm also a massive fan of the director.

    I'm starting to doubt this will coincide with first film. I've been looking online for info, and we have yet to hear about anyone returning. No Charlie Day or Ron Perlman, so unless we hear about some of those folks soon, I think they'll be some kinda time jump.

    Adria Ajorna reported to have joined the cast.

    Back in 2014, Del Toro said Charlie Day and Burn Gorman would return. And I'm pretty sure Perlman will return since he and Del Toro are frequent collaborators. And yeah, at the time, Del Toro said the sequel would take place a few years later.

    Hmm, so for the new cast that's John Boyega, Max Martini, Levi Meaden, Cailee Spaeny, Jing Tian, and Adria Arjona -- and maybe Scott Eastwood (I think he was still in negotiations).

    Cool. Boyega is a perfect choice to play Pentecost's son.

    I was very skeptical for a while that we would see a sequel to Pacific Rim, but it gives me great pleasure to share that filming has begun!

    And yes, we now have official confirmation the title will be Pacific Rim: Maelstrom.
