Episode 59 – #BringBackThePher

On this bigger than ever episode, Vinnk (of FamicomDojo.tv) is sitting in for Pher. We talk about the current state of Pacific Rim 2, the cancellation of Mythbusters, Donna Noble’s Doctor Who Audio Drama return, K-9 getting his own movie, IfCon Victoria disappearing into the night, the 2015 World Fantasy Convention coming to its senses, and SXSW’s complete and total bungling of its anti-Harassment summit.

It’s a really, really long one folks.

Pacific Rim 2 Has a Script, Waiting For Greenlight

Here’s the thing – we love Pacific Rim here at Nerd & Tie. It is quite possibly our favorite thing, and is on the short list of “everything Trae, Nick and Pher agree on.” So when Pacific Rim 2 got announced back in 2014, we got excited. Then we all fell into a deep depression when it was announced that the film had been placed on indefinite hold last month. Hope still remained, but not much.

Well, Guillermo del Toro hasn’t given up, as he tweeted earlier today that he had completed the script for Pacific Rim 2 and has submitted it to the studio.

Now we all begin holding our collective breaths. Legendary has a gap in their schedule in 2019, and this movie still has a shot…

…a small one, but it’s there.

Episode 56 – Predictable Ends

On this episode of Nerd & Tie, we talk about Jenna Louise Coleman’s upcoming departure from Doctor Who, Pacific Rim 2‘s cancellation, the possibility of a new King Kong vs. Godzilla, Titletown Comic & Entertainment Expo officially canceling their 2015 con, MRAs filing a nonsensical suit against Calgary Expo, the MetaCon fistfight, Nick’s experiences at Coulee Con, and our ongoing Indiegogo campaign for the Nerd & Tie Expo.

It’s a lot of fun.

‘Pacific Rim’ Sequel on Indefinite Hold

We loved 2013’s Pacific Rim here at Nerd & Tie. We think it’s the best thing mankind’s ever done, and that includes building the great pyramids and bacon double cheeseburgers. Over a year ago we all rejoiced at the news that Pacific Rim 2 had been greenlit, and all seemed right with the world.

Well… it’s no longer the case.

THR is reporting that the film won’t make it’s August 2017 release date. In fact, it may not happen at all. A victim of Legendary’s move from Warner Bros to Universal, the project has been placed on “indefinite hold.”

And parts of me that I didn’t know could cry are now weeping.

Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim was a visual masterpiece, and a breath of original, fresh air in a world of adaptations and remakes. It was something both familiar yet totally new. To see it’s promising follow up vanish into the Hollywood ether is highly disappointing. It still has a chance of re-materializing, but not a big one.

We can always dream though.
