PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING Gets a New Release Date

PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING Gets a New Release Date

John Boyega‘s first sci-fi action movie after Star WarsPacific Rim: Uprising, will be moved back a month from February to March 2018. Joining Host Jessica Chobot to talk about that and everything else in nerd culture (maybe not everything) are Associate Editor Kyle Anderson, Nerdist Producer Kate Meyers, and Nerdist Producer Jason Nguyen. Today, the Nerdist News Talks Back crew tackles Avengers 4Stranger Things, and Pacific Rim: Uprising.

Avengers 4 begins filming soon, which means many of our heroes will be back to face another galactic threat (possibly more Thanos?). According to Collider, Jeremy Renner will be on set in just over a week, meaning Hawkeye will most likely survive Avengers: Infinity War. With Thanos coming to collect the Infinity Stones, some of Earth’s Mightiest are likely to meet their ends (we’re looking at you, Vision). In the above video, we discuss who’s safe and who might take a gauntlet to the face.

Speaking of dead characters, Sean Astin’s character is Stranger Things season 2’s Barb. In an interview with Screen Rant, director Shawn Levy said that Astin’s character will reach Barb levels of fan-favorite-ness. We don’t know if that means Astin’s character will die and be forgotten, but we do know that season 2 is going hard with its ’80s nostalgia. Maybe a Goonies reference or two?

You know what else is super ’80s? Giant robots. According to DeadlinePacific Rim: Uprising will be delayed one month. While we’d love to see the film a month earlier, this move might benefit the studio. Black Panther comes out in February, and I can’t think of any movie that would want to compete with Black Panther. Without Guillermo Del Toro, there’s a chance that Pacific Rim might not maintain the charm of the first film, but we’re optimistic.
