Pacific Rim 2 will be storming into movie theaters everywhere on April 7, 2017!
The original film was a global box office hit and starred Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman.
“The characters I love will return,” director Guillermo del Toro told BuzzFeed in a new statement. “Raleigh (Hunnam), Mako (Kikuchi), Newt (Day), Gottlieb (Burn Gorman) and who knows, maybe even Hannibal Chau (Perlman) – but we are taking them into a fresh territory that will display amazing sights and battles. The first film set the stage and now we’re ready to have a blast.”
It is not clear yet if the original cast will return for the sequel, but it is also unlikely that they would not reprise their roles.
