For those who enjoyed Pacific Rim: Uprising, it looks like the Blu-ray release will have enough on it to justify picking it up. Though, this movie doesn't seem to have as many fans as Guillermo del Toro's first movie did. Currently, the sequel is sitting at a 43 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes from critics, with just a 48 percent audience rating to go with it. That, unfortunately, had an impact on the box office as well.
To date, Pacific Rim: Uprising has made just $281 million worldwide working from a massive $150 million budget. That's far less than the original made in 2013. Steven S. DeKnight and the studio had some potentially lofty plans for more sequels and even possibly a cinematic universe of sorts built around Pacific Rim. That all hinged on whether or not this movie did well and, based on the numbers, it doesn't look like that's going to happen.
