The fanfiction we can derive from this won't be half bad either.

Truly something Del Toro dreamed his labor of love boiling down too

Hey, this is reality man. They killed the franchise might as well salvage the remains of what's left. Another bright side is the fanbase will always be here. Kind of like a cult think inna Gamera sort of way. Thats super dead, but the fanbase is pretty strong.

So from the sound of things the home video release of Uprising will be an extended cut? Not exactly sure on the details.

I found an image about the computer screen with all the kaiju names, but I don't want to get in trouble since technically it's a leak. Instead I'll post the names:

Spoiler:
-Battra
- Gigan
- Muto
- Zigra
- Clover
- Varan
- Jiger*
- Baragon
- Yonggary
- turtle boy himself, Gamera
- Guiron *
- Gyaos

* names that are a little hard to make out.


I just did non-Pacific Rim names.

But then, who is...
Spoiler:
Agrura? Is that some sort of video game/comic book PR monster?

I'm guessing you've seen the screenshot as well?

Spoiler:
I don't know, according to Wikizilla it's just another Pacific Rim kaiju.

Oh so it flopped? And it made less then the first one did?!

YAY! The abomination is dead!

May the people who made this movie never touch another franchise again

The good thing about the first Pacific Rim is that it ended with a completed story, with all character arcs and ties finished. Now I don't have to deal with a cliffhanger that'll never get answered or finished like Uprising. Meaning I can successfully ignore Uprising entirely

Hadn't noted that. The difference in these films becomes absolutely massive when ya look it that way.

The second movie didn't end on a cliff hanger though. It is completed but very much a 'we can do something next.'
I mean not THAT much different from the first one either. I mean I find it hard to believe the aliens would just stop after the lose of one outpost. A people that can build multiple kaiju on an assembly line don't seem to have the same attrition level as a single planet.

That said I'm looking at the big picture: one monster movie doing poorly means other studios will be nervous. I mean Toho was nervous about doing more Godzilla movies thanks to the crappy 70s Kong doing poorly. Quality often means very little to studios. Transformers 2 is a better movie than Pacific Rim Uprising because it made more. Never mind one I enjoyed, Uprising, and one I want to blow my brains out just thinking about it, Revenge of the Fallen for the record.

It does, though.
Spoiler:
It ends with Newt still being controlled and Jake claiming they'll take the fight to the Anteverse. Newt's condition is an unresolved conflict and Jake's statement is a teaser for a sequel. It's not a hardcore cliffhanger, but it's still a cliffhanger nonetheless.

More people view Pacific Rim as a robot movie than a monster movie, so don't worry.

I guess, well a cliffhanger to me would be...
Spoiler:
Jake and Amara watch helplessly as the Mega Kaiju plunges right in! Oh god what is going to happen!?
This kind is totally bearable, much as I want to see
Spoiler:
Newt redeemed and a big ass war.
Maybe a comic.

A prequel film about the first Jager and the start of the kaiju attacks would've been a better choice for a second film IMO

Since Del Toro doesn't like the military and doesn't want to show where the Jeagers/humanity are winning the only movie I could see him doing is this situation. A handful of kaiju end up reviving/healing either on their own/humans assisting them. I guess two or three people go on a hunt to find the least badly damaged Jaeger or two and they go up against these two or three kaiju stragglers. I guess there could be flashbacks to the previous Kaiju war.

It wouldn’t be a problem if you just put the link under spoilers… the whole leak thing only has to do with Godzilla type stuff, not other franchises

Care to send me a link?

Trivia note: PRU's IMDB crew is now larger than Skull Island's. #Factoid.

Another: Kong grossed more domestically in 3 days than PRU's entire run.

As someone who loves the original I actually really enjoyed Uprising for what it was.

No not yay, this decreases the odds of another Pacific Rim film. You know, one that might have been good and made up for the second.

heeeeellll no. Hell to the no.

Pacific rim shouldn't have had a sequel in the first place. With the current lore thats been established, a sequel would either have to retcon a bunch or be just as poop as uprising.

I think it's better we sweep uprising under the rug and move on from PR.
