PSA for the Pacific Rim fandom: Don’t trust a word that comes from the Pacific Rim twitter/facebook page that links to They’re the social media arms of a Scified site that has no affiliation with Warner Brothers / Legendary but “happens” to have a legitimate-sounding name. Their Godzilla counterpart caused significant confusion in the months before the new movie with its wildly speculative or outright misleading headlines/tweets/posts. This context-free image posted last night looks to be more of the same.

EDIT: For the record, Pacific Rim 2 (along with the animated series and comic books) is still on schedule. It’s just the image that is fake.


“This was originally intended for only WonderCon, but after listening to so many of you asking for more of the movie online, I think it’s time for me to show you more footage. Enjoy, my friends!”
