A recent press release from Legendary Entertainment has revealed the titles for their Pacific Rim and Godzilla sequels!
“Best known for his work as Executive Producer on such films as Warner Bros’ The Judge and Watchmen, as well as the recently released Jack Reacher: Never Go Back from Paramount, Gains’ responsibilities will include overseeing production of Legendary’s feature film slate including such highly anticipated projects as Pacific Rim: Uprising, Pokemon’s Detective Pikachu and Godzilla: King of Monsters. Gains will also work closely with the post-production team insuring that the filmmaker’s vision remains intact through production to final distribution.”
As a huge fan of Godzilla, giant mechs and Kaijus in general, i’m exceptionally psyched for both of these movies. Pacific Rim: Uprising hits theaters February 23rd, 2018 and Godzilla: King of Monsters attacks the following year on March 22nd, 2019.
Legendary’s next film Kong: Skull Island (which is a prequel to their 2014 Godzilla) will be in theaters on March 10th, 2017.
