REALLY glad to see At The Mountains of Madness isn't dead!

As long as it's under an hour and a half?   :P
Preferably, yes. It is based on a short story, after all.

Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim 2 to explore more of the kaiju's homeworld

 :?
Cervantes smiled Spain's chivalry away;
A single laugh demolished the right arm
Of his own country; — seldom since that day
Has Spain had heroes.

where did all the happy endings go?, where could all the good times be.

Maybe they will clone Idris Elba.  He was the bright spot in the first one.  Although seeing Max Martini get a bigger role would be great, I like seeing him when he shows up in random tv shows.

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

Guillermo Del Toro Planning for PACIFIC RIM 3; Aiming to Begin Production on PACIFIC RIM 2 in Late 2015
Quote from: Matt Goldberg
With regards to Pacific Rim 2, Del Toro reiterated how the sequel will be a different experience, and expanded to say:
Quote
“some of your favorite characters come back, some others don’t because we have decided that we’re going to shoot ambitiously and say ‘Let’s hope we have three movies,’ so some characters come in at the end of the second, hoping that it will ramp up on the third one.”
Cervantes smiled Spain's chivalry away;
A single laugh demolished the right arm
Of his own country; — seldom since that day
Has Spain had heroes.

More giant monster movies is always good. But I kind of wish Guillermo will direct another movie between PR2 and 3.
Frankly, I'm really hoping that Pacific Rim 2 is a mega hit. One of the major things that hurt the first one, I think, is that it wasn't an established franchise name (and the name was poorly chosen, lets be honest). Now it is.

I actually enjoyed this quite a bit, as well as the new Godzilla, aside from (no maybe because of) the general goofiness of both. It's like with modern graphics you can finally see what they were trying to get at back when it was guys in rubber suits stomping on train sets, and honestly it looks pretty awesome. Before I saw it I read an interview with GDT talking about it and how he grew up obsessed with the old Japanese monster movies in cheap Mexican theaters, so it was kinda charming to get that perspective on it. I also liked how he took up these really well-worn tropes but also took it in a somewhat novel direction with all the apocalyptic, Lovecrafty stuff, the obsession with alien biology, etc. A nice counterpoint to JJ Abrams' bold but not very enjoyable attempt to reinvent the monster movie.

The first pacific rim didn't bomb. It didn't do well in the US, but overseas it made a ton. That's why Hollywood has been courting Asia lately. There are a lot of butts there to which one can sell seats. And that's why Transformers 4, and that's why Transformers 5 and 6....

190 million budget, 411 million worldwide box office. 221 million profit might not be a ton by Hollywood standards, but it seems pretty profitable to me.

It almost made as much worldwide as Tim Burton's Batman.
