‘Godzilla,’ ‘Pacific Rim’ Sequels New Titles Revealed

Legendary Announced New Titles

Legendary announced the official titles for both Godzilla 2 and Pacific Rim 2, naming the sequels as Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Pacific Rim: Uprising.

The Godzilla reboot will be helmed by Krampus director Michael Dougherty and is currently on track to open March 22, 2019, which will follow next year’s Kong: Skull Island, with a Godzilla vs. Kong movie also planned for 2020.

The Pacific Rim follow-up, which was previously titled Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, is slated to open February 23, 2018. “Daredevil” showrunner Steven S. DeKnight heads the film, which is shooting in Australia and China.

I’ve gotta say, Pacific Rim: Maelstrom sounded much better than Pacific Rim: Uprising. The latter is so generic, lame and overused. As for the second one, I’m cool with Godzilla’s King of the Monsters. Clearly, it’s a nod to the 1956 American Godzilla, King of the Monsters! recut of the original Japanese Gojira film.

In related news, the first ever live-action Pokemon movie now has the full name Pokemon’s Detective Pikachu.
