Guillermo del Toro confirms ‘Pacific Rim 2’ will Start Filming this Year

Comic-Con is always a time for big announcements, and this year Guillermo del Toro has dropped a kaiju-sized one on us. Pacific Rim 2, the sequel to the 2013 film which was a modest financial success making $411 million worldwide; it was however a critical success. Filming for the sequel will begin later this year in Toronto and China and it is set for a 2017 summer release. The film seems to be moving forward at a fast pace, considering the sequel was only officially greenlit less than three weeks ago.
