One of the most talked-about movies of the summer is 'Pacific Rim,' which seemed like the ultimate fanboy movie leading up to its release but has failed to light up the domestic box office (despite plenty of enthusiastic notices from movie geeks and critics alike). However, thanks to a surge in overseas box office (particularly China), the film just may end up getting a sequel, against all odds. But would you want to see it?

Guillermo del Toro's giant robot epic 'Pacific Rim' has been dolling out the promotional material like candy. Blueprints and viral videos (one of which actually reveals a glimpse of those giant monster Kaiju), and a new site to house all of the material recently launched to start prepping fans for the film's July 12, 2013 release.
While we have a ways to go before actually seeing the film, it seems that Legendary Pictures are pretty confident it'll perform well. In fact, they're already preparing for a 'Pacific Rim 2.' But who's on board for the sequel, and will Guillermo del Toro be back to direct?
