*Deadline broke news that Pacific Rim 2, shooting later this year, once again has an official release date. After being delayed to July and then August of 2017, the film is now set for a February 23rd, 2018 release date--Filling the kaiju void that year left by Godzilla 2's push to 2019.

Although February is usually considered a graveyard month for films, it's notable that's late February. March has slowly become the new month to kick off the blockbuster season and Pacific Rim 2 isn't the only big budget, tentpole movie expanding earlier into the year.

Marvel's Black Panther opens February 16th, 2018 for example. And Fox will kick off March with either Deadpool 2 or an X-Men related spinoff.

Pacific Rim 2 still has competition with those two films, but it's interesting to note that February is slowly absorbing release dates for bigger films.

Excited that Pacific Rim 2 finally has a release date? How do you think it will do with this date? Let us know below.

Ah, ya beat me to posting the story by seconds! ;)

I am SO EXCITED that this film FINALLY has a release date!!!!  I don't know about you guys, but I am ready to cancel the apocalypse... all over again!

Also, although the date appears funky, its really the year that gets me excited. The timing, year-wise, makes since for both Legendary Pictures and their planned slate of monster films, and for kaiju fans in general: there is now at least one major giant monster film every year from 2016 to 2020 (beginning with Godzilla: Resurgence this summer, and continuing with Legendary’s Kong: Skull Island in 2017, Pacific Rim 2 in 2018, Godzilla 2 in 2019, and Godzilla vs Kong in 2020), and perhaps even more after that! And that's not counting films like Colossal this year, Rampage and Dragon Wars 2 next year, the new Gamera film in development, and all the independent kaiju films in development! 

It truly is a great time to be a fan.
