My bad. Editted. Though to be honest, if you're in a thread titled "Pacific Rim 2" it's sort of expected you've already seen the first one.

Well, some people who are interested in seeing the first film naturally get excited for the second film. Like me.

If it's greenlit, awesome. But I can't say I'm holding my breath given the numbers.
Bad news for those looking forward to a sequel. I think Cracked also pointed to a reason against it.

"Oh, Cracked," some box-office-savvy person is saying, "Don't you know that these big-budget CGI-fests make all of their money back in foreign markets?" Nope, we're totally counting that.

It's true that more and more big-budget films try desperately to appeal to foreign markets like China (what with 1.3 billion potential ticket buyers). For instance, the aforementioned Pacific Rim has already made $220 million worldwide, which sounds like "everyone gets a free golden robot" money. But the problem is that most of that money isn't actually going to the studios.

In foreign markets, studios only get 40 percent of the gross; in China, it's 20 percent. The rest is split with the theaters and other involved parties (oh, and thanks to a dispute over sales taxes, they aren't even getting the 20 percent right now). Did we mention that China's international box office sales dropped 21 percent this year alone?

Again, if you're a fan of, for instance, Guillermo del Toro's movies and want to see a studio fund his next project, this matters to you. Because Pacific Rim isn't giving them a reason to.

It's not really just China, just a weak influence due to small sales and small take-home amount for Hollywood companies in non-US/Canadian markets.
