I think the only hope for a sequel is if it becomes a massive hit in China.

Well crap, I was going to find the article and link it here just so I could back up my statement. I know I read it somewhere...

Anyways, as for Charlie, well I've been a fan of his since "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." He's not the most versatile actor in the world, so when I knew he was going to be in this movie I pretty much knew what to expect. I personally didn't have a problem with him though.

2010s:

1. Inception(2010)
2. Pacific Rim(2013)
3. Star Trek:Into Darkness(2013)
4. Man of Steel(2013)
5. Oblivion(2013)
6. Looper(2012)
7. Tron:Legacy(2010)
8. The Adjustment Bureau(2011)

The wallpaper creator at the official site is pretty cool.

People have been having fun (heh) with the Jaeger designer, too.

Edit: Holy crap, two of those from the article are ones I made...!

The Jaeger designer needed more options.

Re: Pacific Rim - Grading and Discussion

Alright, this is my favorite movie of the summer.

I loved the attitude, the characters, the music, the effects, the actors, the monsters, and the robots.

I really liked those cool RGB laser displays used in the movie, too.

Going to see it in a bit. Looking forward to it, since I first saw the trailers.

I'd love to see this climb up the box office chart this weekend, but I have a feeling The Conjuring and Turbo are the ones everyone is going to be flocking to.

It was fun. I liked it. Not sure if there will be a potential sequel, going by the last portion of the movie.

Re: Pacific Rim - Grading and Discussion

The producers have already suggested that a sequel might have something to do with "drifting" with the kaiju.

GDT said in an interview that I saw on IGN that they wrote a very detailed outline, although now I can't remember how long he said it was. He made it pretty clear that they have a lot of material for the sequel, and the video game that he is hoping to make.

Didn't Gipsy Danger's final act pretty much put the kibosh on any sequel?
