'Pacific Rim: Uprising,' starring John Boyega, pushed back from February to March 2018

Pacific Rim: Uprising has been moved once again, this time from February 23 to March 23.

The sequel was in line to come out right after Black Panther, during a 5-week period when we would have gotten Proud Mary, Black Panther, Pacific Rim: Uprising, and Wrinkle in Time.

But now, it's moving from Black History Month to March.

Along with Boyega, It also stars Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Cailee Spaeny, Rinko Kikuchi, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona and Charlie Day.

Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, Jon Jashni, and del Toro are producing the action adventure film along with Boyega and Femi Oguns under their Upper Room Productions shingle.

This second film in the franchise created by Guillermo del Toro (who directed the first film) and Travis Beacham, will see Boyega play the son of the character that Idris Elba played in the original 2013 film, which grossed $411 million worldwide ($300 million was from overseas).
