|Pacific Rim (2013) animatic|
Pacific Rim, despite a slow start, is a blockbuster hit and director Guillermo del Toro is writing a sequel to Pacific Rim whether the studio buys it or not. "We are writing the sequel." del Toro said, "Travis Beacham and I are writing, so that is active. The decision to green light or not, that’s definitely above my pay rate."
For now, we have to continue to marvel at the visual feast that is Pacific Rim. One of the featurettes on the Pacific Rim Blu-Ray is a animatic of the Shatterdome Hong Kong Bay deployment of Chernol Alpha, Crimson Typhoon and Striker Eureka.
Here's the description: "Take an exclusive look at the storyboard renderings of Pacific Rim's majestic and mighty Shatterdome launch sequence, in which a trio of humanity's most powerful Jaegers are flown via helicopter into Hong Kong Bay to fight what they think will be just another Kaiju. Oh, my heavens, are they wrong."

Official PACIFIC RIM Synopsis
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
