Plot Summary

The second film, Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) (Universal Pictures) brought in an estimated $290M worldwide. Its modest $28M opening weekend was enough to dethrone Marvel’s Black Panther from the top of the domestic box office if only by a narrow victory. “We’re really pleased with the overall worldwide launch of this title,” Jim Orr, president of domestic distribution at Universal, said at the time.

Back in June ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ director Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus, Marvel’s Daredevil) talked about his hopes for a third film weather or not he is involved saying, “I think the franchise deserves to be finished. I hope, with or without me.” ‘Pacific Rim 3’ plot details are being kept under wraps and no director has been officially announced.

‘Uprising’ starred John Boyega (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) as Jake Pentecost, a rebellious Jaeger pilot and son of Idris Elba’s character Stacker Pentecost. The film also co-starred Cailee Spaeny (Bad Times at the El Royale) as a young Jaeger hacker and rising star Scott Eastwood (The Fate of the Furious).

Earlier this month streaming giant Netflix announced development of a ‘Pacific Rim’ anime series as part of its 17 new Asian original productions. The official synopsis for the anime series is described as follows, “As monsters emerge from the sea to attack Earth, humanity fights back using giant robot warriors in this anime adaptation of the blockbuster film.” Are you looking forward to the next chapter in the ‘Pacific Rim 3’ franchise?

    I really hope Universal makes Pacific Rim 3. I loved the first two and hope they bring back Jake, Nate, and Amara (Herman, Newt, and Scrapper, of course) for the third installment.

  6. Bob says:

    I would love to see a Pacific Rim 3 both pacific rim movies were amazing but I do prefer the first installment over uprising due to the fact of the film being longer and more serious and dramatic with scenes and characters, pacific rim 3 should be more like the first pacific rim when it comes to those elements!.

    They really need to make a prequel. Del toro needs to come back and run things. DeNight didn’t do a good job. I hated the way he put the story with kids training to be rangers then about the jaegers. The acting and comedy was not that great. I can only appreciate them making the fights in the daylight so you can at least see everything going on. Big fan don’t get me wrong I still like the movie, but not the way I would of done it. It should of been a prequel showing how the Kailu came and the fights that we missed with Romeo blue, coyote tango, Cherno Alpha and other mark I and II jaegers. Then for the third should of been like p.m 2 and if it was directed by del toro it would of been even better. Huge fan and just my opinion, reminds me of the underworld franchise and after the 3rd it went down hill, bad CG and storyline went the wrong way. If they do make a third either way I will be happy. Also make it rated R, not for nudity but for more detailed violence/ blood and cursing if they want.

    Universal………….shut up and take my money. Give me everything that Pacific Rim.

  10. Myca Bryan says:

    Best movie franchise in the mordern era

  11. George Westerman says:

    With the disaster of the “dark universe” films and there bugets I can’t see universal letting this one go. So a third ones a no brainer in my books with Netflix interest and the Chinese loving them. ….and they made money on them more importantly.
