Oh, you thought the Jaegers had smashed the Kaiju and saved the world and everybody lived happily ever after? You underestimate the corporate cash-printing potential of a franchise. New movie, new t-shirts, new video games, new plushie Gipsy Danger toys, new Category IV bubblebath (Now With Improved Electromagnetic Breach Formula!).
So guess what? The Kaiju are baaaaack.
With Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, and Rinko Kikuchi reprising their roles from the original film, and John Boyega featuring as new protagonist Jake Pentecost (son of Idris Elba’s Stacker Pentecost from the first movie), the inevitable sequel is more of the same, but probably with a bigger budget. Trendy rap music in 3.. 2… 1…
It’s out on 23 March.
