Pacific Rim 2 & Godzilla Crossover Rumors Abound
There have been a few recent giant monster movies worthy of your attention, and two of those are Pacific Rim and the new Godzilla. Both films were incredible in their own rights, but what would make them better? Apparently, the answer to that question is a crossover between Pacific Rim 2 and the new Godzilla. Both films are within the same genre – monster movies – and both did quite well at the box office, so it would make sense to tie them in together at some point.
Legendary Pictures, at one point, admitted to the world that Godzilla and Pacific Rim would be completely separate from each other. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, as new rumors have been spreading around the Internet, claiming the two will join together at some point in the near future.
The Movie News Hound reports that the success seen in Godzilla 2014 and positive reaction towards Pacific Rim 2 has Legendary Pictures considering a crossover between the two movies. Unfortunately, this type of crossover won’t happen until after Godzilla 2 and Pacific Rim 2 have concluded, so perhaps in a third film within one of the franchises.
The new Godzilla film earned around $93 million in ticket sales during its opening weekend, and another $103 million total in overseas markets. This makes it the best international debut this year, which Legendary is sure to capitalize upon in the near future with more films in the franchise. A lot of the sales came from IMAX theaters, where massive screens portrayed Godzilla in all his wonder. These theaters earned around $40,057 on average per showing.
A crossover would be plenty of confusing, as fans would be voting for both Godzilla and the Jaegers to win the ultimate battle. However, we desperately want to see this crossover happen, as it would combine two impressive films into one experience. Pacific Rim 2 cannot get here soon enough, then we can discuss the potential for a new film between the two in earnest.
