While Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim brought in decent (though somewhat disappointing) numbers with its domestic run, the international gross that the movie accumulated (particularly from the Chinese box office) is what ensured that the movie would get a sequel. Today, that sequel – Pacific Rim: Uprising – has its official logo.
Director Stephen DeKnight has released the official logo for the film through his Instagram account:
The logo’s font is of a different color, and the rift shown now obscures the space between “Pacific” and “Rim” instead of obscuring the second “i” in “Pacific”. The rift also glows with brighter colors than its predecessor. Other than that, there’s nothing particularly remarkable about it.
Pacific Rim: Uprising stars John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeney, Jing Tian, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Levi Meaden, Adria Arjona, Karan Brar, and Nick E. Tarabay. The sequel will follow the Jake Pentecost (John Boyega), the son of Pan Pacific Defense Corps leader Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba), who gave his life to stop the Kaiju invasion that nearly destroyed the human race. Jake will have to take up his father’s sword by piloting a Jaeger, the best defense against the resurgent Kaiju menace. The film opens in theaters on February 23, 2018.
