I'm hoping that the sequel does better, now that the title is a recognizable franchise.

I think it will do about the same.  WB will lose interest in it and it will go direct to video after that. 

I was bieng threated with death by wolf raping before it was cool!.

WB's already lost interest - they gave up distribution to Universal. But that's because PR's production company, Legendary Pictures, left WB for Universal last summer and WB got rid of all their Legendary projects.

Universal, it seems, is all in on the GDT/Legendary business.

If Crimson Peak (GDT's next, out in October 2015) and Pacific Rim 2: More Kaiju are hits, it's not too far-fetched to imagine GDT being given the reins of the Universal Monsters.

That's a pretty big if, though. At least in terms of them being hits, which is something GDT movies always struggle with. Luckily there are still other ways to get clout, even if he'll have to struggle for every bit of it.

Damn! That blew up my Twitter. I'm not used to getting so many responses.

Right. He's won Oscars (cache), and played nice with the studios (so he'll listen), which means there are still people interested in doing business with him. I mean, the only reason there's still a Pacific Rim franchise to consider is because the head of Legendary is a huge geek to begin with and loves GDT. Someone who's more bottom line-orientated would've weighed the cost/return ratio and politely told GDT to concentrate on less expensive comics and cartoons.

They're making a sequel to Hansel & Gretal? I really enjoyed that movie.

Same deal as Pacific Rim: mediocre North American grosses, solid to successful worldwide.

It's probably going to happen more often as the importance of worldwide box office grows.

Doesn't Marvel own the phrase: Super Hero?


Exclusive: Guillermo del Toro Says He’s Shooting a Small, Black and White Film Before PACIFIC RIM 2; John Hurt May Star
Quote from: Adam Chitwood
While del Toro is planning on starting pre-production on Pacific Rim 2 later this year, he told us that he’s actually scheduled a brief hiatus in which he will shoot a much smaller movie:
Quote
“Right away, in February/March I should [start on] another very small movie, black and white, really, really bizarre before starting—we start pre-production on Pacific Rim 2 in August, and then I interrupt it briefly to go into the first of next year to do this strange little movie, and then I restart it and go all the way until we start shooting Pacific Rim 2 at the end of 2015 for release in 2017.”
Del Toro was reluctant to reveal too much about the project, but he did say he already has cast in mind:
Quote
“It’s a very small cast.  I would love to have John Hurt, and there’s an actress that I have in mind that is not well-known but I’ve seen her in a short film.  That’s all she’s really done, one feature and one short, but she has an incredibly interesting taste and I’m gonna try her out for the main role.”
When asked whether or not this new film fits into his previous filmography, he offered this brief, tantalizing tease:
Quote
“There’s one great creature in it.”
Del Toro confirmed that the project does have a title, but he’d rather the finished film speak for itself instead of divulging too much beforehand:
Quote
“It does [have a title], but I find—I’d rather do the projects and then show them to people than talk about them.  I think that it’s going to be a nice thing for people to know which one is it and where it came from when it’s a reality.”
