Pacific Rim may spawn a sequel

pacific-rim-gypsy-danger-boat

(From The Guardian) Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro’s robots v monsters action movie, is likely to get a sequel after its $9m (£5.9m) record-breaking opening in China, according to Deadline.

The film, which has performed poorly at the US box office, is currently at the top spot internationally. It is yet to be released in over half of global territories including Spain, Brazil and Japan. It’s still unclear whether the film will turn a profit due to its budget, which reportedly lies somewhere between $180-220m (£118-145m).

Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam as the pilot of a Jaeger – a giant robot built to take on huge monsters from another dimension, known as Kaijus. Hunnam’s craft – the Gipsy Danger – is backed-up by the Crimson Typhoon, a three-armed robot piloted by Chinese triplets.

The film also includes pilots and technicians from Russia and Australia and is strongly influenced by Japanese Kaiju monster movies.

It’s unclear how much of Pacific Rim’s Chinese revenue will head back to Warner Bros, the US studio behind the film.

World Trade Organisation legislation states that US studios should receive 25% of takings from China, yet a recent row over an additional 2% “luxury tax” has seen China withhold payments to the six major Hollywood studios.
