I'm gonna avoid the obvious comment and say that I'm glad this is happening. I'm tired of not getting sequels to things I like.

I actually wouldn't mind this at all.

Please let this happen.

I don't see how this could be anything but a major improvement.
>>
>>13750868
Why mark 2 the failed designs instead of going for new originals?
>>
PACRIM 2 would be cool but maybe this also means adaptations of mecha properties too.
>>
>>13751055
one: not fair to rate their capabilities as "failures" after successfully killing monsters for years and then losing against an unprecedented kaiju doubleteam
two: they look cool and we didn't get to see enough
>>
>>13751055
just pulling straws on what will be comming out in a pacific rim2 movie, but I'm just sure the whatever the new American jaeger redesign would be, is going to get snuff out early... base on how china's support on the film.

Feels like shit.

Just wait till they come up with some 4 character phrase to appease the Chinese overlords

The martial art novels does it better

Everything.

>>13750868
Given the massive Chinese and Japanese audience, I'm guessing Tacit Ronin may appear as an interim unit used by the MC duo before jobbing to a new Kaiju (not to mention, Toro originally wanted to have it reappear, way back in the early PR2 plans), then the relatively intact Crimson Typhoon would be made the end-game upgrade with a reinforced head to reduce the risk of being grappled.

Should use Archive.Today so that you stop giving them pageviews.

It's just clickbait. If you actually read the article there's no evidence that PR2 is likely to happen.

Are you joking? Pacific Rim made $14 million in Japan. In the same year, Frozen made $249 million in Japan.

still waiting for Robotech, though if it's not going to have transformable jets they can fuck off
>>
>>13750868
Commies taking the lead is kinda disappointing. I guess nips would be too obvious. Which it was the Aussies they had a cool one. Or the superior Russian brand of communism.

And kaijus will pay for it

It's possible they'll just go the Transformers 4 route.

It'd be like Age of Extinction-level of heretical nonsense to satisfy the Chinese producers with fan-service that western audiences will not understand.

I don't think mecha is ever understood by western audience

Pacific Rim made $111,940,000 in China alone.
>>
The reason why a movie like Pacific Rim does so well is simply because the Chinese want to see something different.

They've been bombarded with anti-nip and historical martial art series since childhood.

Meanwhile, Japan just scoffs it off as something they've already seen a bazillion times already.

Fuck Japan, they dont deserve another Jaeger... Guillermo should've gone with South Korea and Mexico instead of Japan and Australia

No one ever sad Japan had good taste.

Which is?

I haven't seen one of those movies since the first one.

Pretty much everything Japan does. Especially Gundam. They even built a knockoff 1:1 gundam statue that they had to change the appearance of in order to avoid a massive lawsuit.

My thoughts exactly...

I mean seriously, the shit that site does makes the yellow paper press look good because they at least do some fact checking before going to print. At his previous job the current editor-in-chief of that site wrote a news article about how a guy was the CEO of a game studio had been convicted of sexually harassing a woman who had worked there, then edited the news piece to say that a woman who had worked there had ACCUSED him of sexually harassing her WITHOUT MAKING ANY NOTE THAT THE ARTICLE HAD BEEN EDITED. What this lead to was a huge torrent of death threats, threats of violence, rape, etc. to not only the CEO of the studio, his family as well. What's worse, it later came to light that the woman had made it all up to get back at the owner for firing and was made to publish a formal apology by the courts.

You'd think the now editor-in-chief of Polygon would apologize for causing so much grief for this guy and his family with his shitty writing, but he's always adamantly refused to apologize and insists that the guy is an asshole and deserved the abuse. Then to think that Intel is paying them and their parent company to run an anti online abuse campaign is just mind boggling. It's like paying Hitler to run a campaign against anti-semetism or something.
