Detective Pikachu And Godzilla Sequel Get Titles As Pacific Rim 2 Gets A New Name


Things change quickly in Hollywood sometimes, and it seems a quite recent bit of news might have already been altered. Not so long ago, John Boyega went to Instagram, seemingly announcing Pacific Rim 2 to be called Pacific Rim: Maelstrom.

Well, throw that out the window. Legendary have now come out themselves and announced a couple names for their upcoming films. Interestingly, Pacific Rim: Maelstrom is already out, and we have been given Pacific Rim: Uprising in its stead.

That wasn't all though. They also announced that Godzilla 2 now has a subtitle, revealing the film as Godzilla: King of Monsters. This makes sense, considering reports that the film might feature Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah. Granted that was when Gareth Edwards was still attached, so that could have all changed by now. Still, all out war with a couple of Godzilla's rogue's gallery would make this fan quite happy.

As a side bar, the Pokemon movie now has the full name Pokemon's Detective Pikachu, which doesn't reveal anything we didn't know already.

Still, speaking for myself, this is a really exciting slate for me. These names do nothing to hamper my excitement for any of these. Bring them on.
