Looks like Pacific Rim: Uprising‘s problems are never ending. Universal Pictures announced earlier this week that the movie will be delayed from its initial release date by a month.
Reasons for the delay haven’t been revealed, but the filming concluded on 30 March this year. However, the film apparently will have a strong connection to China, as stated by Dr. Jack Gao, an executive at Beijing Wanda Cultural Industry Group which owns Legendary Entertainment.
Given that the movie has been plagued by so many setbacks (including potentially not even being completed) we’re glad it’s just coming out.
Pacific Rim: Uprising stars John Boyega as the son of Idris Elba’s Stacker Pentecost (from the first movie), with Cailee Spaeny playing the lead female in the film. They are joined by Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Adria Arjona and Mackenyu, among others.
The movie which was supposed to be released on 23 February 2018, instead will hit the screens come 23 March 2018 instead.
