pacific rim 2 release dateThe Pacific Rim 2 release date has finally been set! The long-awaited sequel will finally make it to the big screen. This time, we may see some new cast members.

Legendary Pictures made the announcement earlier today that the Pacific Rim 2 release date has been marked. The movie is targeting a February 23, 2018 release. It looks like we will have to wait quite awhile before we can see some giant robots fighting giant monsters.

Additionally, Deadline reported today that actor Scott Eastwood is being eyed for a key role in the upcoming sequel. He would star alongside John Boyega. This Star Wars: The Force Awakens star is set to play the son of the character played by Idris Elba in the original Pacific Rim.

Eastwood, son of the iconic Clint Eastwood, is recently emerging as an actor. Most recently. he was confirmed to be joining Fast 8. He is also starring in the upcoming Suicide Squad when it relelases August 5. On September 16, he will appear in Snowden. It certainly is a busy period for the actor.

Now that there is a Pacific Rim 2 release date, we are more than eager to jump back into that world. The first entry was the definitely of a fun blockbuster. We imagine that, just like the first film, this movie will be much better in theaters than on a tiny television screen.
