It’s been ten years since The Battle of the Breach and the oceans are still, but restless. Vindicated by the victory at the Breach, the Jaeger program has evolved into the most powerful global defense force in human history. The PPDC now calls upon the best and brightest to rise up and become the next generation of heroes.

Because these movies cost a lot of money and the giddy one didn't exactly light up the box office.

Ended up making nearly half a billion. Cost was $139M.

Box Office Mojo has it's budget at $190 million. Domestically it didn't come close to that; making just shy of $102 million. But internationally it raked in another $309 million. So, yeah, at $411 million total gross, the thing more than doubled it's production budget. Makes sense that they'd green light a sequel. Especially if they can trim that budget down from the first one.

Yeah, though a professional-looking Charlie Day is just weird.

I don't know if I'm seeing things but is it possible that some humans are working with the Kaiju? Because those are definitely missiles going into those buildings. The Jaeger v Jaeger fight in the middle is suspect as well.

The first one made a ton of money in Asia. This one looks confusing as hell though.

Yeah, the voiceover in the trailer sort of alludes to the Jaegars being dangerous too. But whatever, the story doesn't really matter in this movie. I'm just showing up for Boyega's cool haircut.

1/2 a star review. So it's not totally Transformers.
