PACIFIC RIM Reaches $400M Worldwide; Blu-ray 3D Cover And Collector's Edition Revealed
While it may still not be enough to guarantee a sequel, Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim has now reached $100 million domestically and $400 million worldwide. We also have a first look at the Blu-ray 3D Cover and Collector's Edition. Check it out!
As you can see from the Tweet below, Pacific Rim has managed to reach $100 million in North America, giving it a worldwide total of $400 million. While this is certainly a better result than many ever expected, the huge production budget and marketing costs may still mean that the studio will never truly be comfortable enough to greenlight a sequel. Stranger things have happened of course, so we'll just have to wait and see! Thanks to Twitter's @_NerdyGeek_, we also have a first look at the Blu-ray 3D cover and Collector's Edition. Do you guys plan on picking either of these up?
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot and an untested trainee — who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
