The film "Pacific Line 2" 2018
Despite all the problems with the production and the postponement of the release, the film "The Pacific Frontier" in 2018 goes to the cinema. For fans of the franchise, this can be a real relief, because not only the release date was determined, but the shooting began in full. It seemed that after the refusal of Guillermo del Toro to shoot the second part (and all the previous postponements of the start of work), she would never see the light. But the director changed, the actors were picked up and the work began to fully!
|Country of Origin:||USA|
|Genre:||fiction, cyberpunk, action|
|Producer:||Stephen De Knight|
In March 2017, the shooting officially ended, the post-production stage began, and a trailer in Russian is also planned. However, the leading man in the first part, Charlie Hannam, was unable to return to the franchise due to a mismatch in the filming schedules with his other projects. Yes, and many other favorite characters in the film, we will not see.
What will the second part of the "Pacific Rim"
The plot unfolds in the future. Since the first part has passed quite a lot of years. The apocalypse seemed to be stopped even then. And at the time of this time, General Pentekost had a son who grew up (John Boyega plays his role). About the program of the Huntsmen have not forgotten, these giant robots have become quite commonplace in the universe of franchises. But do not forget what the film was originally about: the monstrous kaiju that they seemed to have got rid of are returning. Between measurements, a new gap opens, from which even more monsters are threatening that threaten life on Earth.
Who is filming
Actors who will play key roles in the new sci-fi action movie "Pacific Rim 2":
- Scott Eastwood ("Suicide Squad").
- John Boyega ("Star Wars").
- Charlie Day ("It's always sunny in Philadelphia").
- Jing Tian ("Kong: Skull Island").
- Adria Arhona ("The Emerald City").
- Rinko Kikuchi ("Pacific Rim").
- Bern Gorman ("Pacific Rim", "Torchwood").
- Dustin Claire (Spartak).
- Nick E. Tarabey ("Spartak").
- Levi Miden (“Almost a Man”).
- Dan Furrigel (Spartak).
Of the main part of the first part, only Rinko Kikuchi and Bern Gorman return.The current cast is otherwise completely different from the previous film. We will see a new film with new characters, but we will not look at the adventures of the “old men”. And the film crew has changed since the beginning of work on the film.
The main part of the crew included:
- Stephen De Knight (director, screenwriter).
- John Boyega (producer).
- Guillermo del Toro (producer).
- Emily Carlisle (screenwriter).
- Cyrus Snyder (screenwriter).
- John Pesano (composer).
- Stefan Deschan (production designer).
- And others.
Of course, after Guillermo del Toro left the post of director, it was also unclear when the film will be released, and whether it will be released at all, and whether the new director will cope with the task. But the works of Stephen De Knight inspire confidence: he was a show runner for the epic (and already fully completed) Spartak series on Starz TV channel, which you can watch online without any problems. Some of the actors from this series Steven De Knight dragged into the second Pacific Rim.
The first film was released in 2013. He became commercially successful, even then talked about the sequel, and at the end of the first part there were hints of it.But Guillermo del Toro had other projects, including the “Strain” series, already available in Russian. The work on the second part was all over and over. Usually, commercially successful films receive sequels within a couple of years, and immediately there is a gap of five years. Fortunately, fans of the “Pacific Rim” have not forgotten and are also waiting for the first videos to appear, and then the film itself.
The status of the project remained uncertain even in 2015. Then the release was pushed back again. But work on the script and concepts were already underway. And del Toro had plans for a sequel back in 2012. The fact that the director has changed, it became known in February 2016, and in May, the rewriting of the existing script began. The summary of the new film became known at the stage of work of the team Stephen De Knight. Filming fully started on November 9, 2016, and by March 2017 is fully completed.
