After confirming, to much fan-appreciation, that one of the most influential anime series of all time would be making its way to the streaming service, Netflix has confirmed that Neon Genesis Evangelion will hit on June 21st. It’s been notoriously difficult for quite some time for fans to watch the series without purchasing one of its incredibly expensive box-sets, so this opens a breadth of new fans to the massive series.

Pacific Rim was not the most well-received film critically, or financially, but it was a success among fans of the Kaiju genre, and they’ll be certainly delighted to learn that Pacific Rim: Uprising director, Steven S. DeKnight, has spoken with Warner Bros. about the potential of the series crossing over into the Legendary Monster-verse and doing battle with Godzilla, King Kong, and all of them!
“I won’t say there’s an Easter Egg but there’s been a lot of discussion about that possibility [of crossing over]. Look I think it would be fantastic to have the Pacific Rim universe join Legendary’s Monster Universe, it seems like a natural step. And part of the big overall plan after the third movie we’ve talked about is that could happen, it’s always a possibility. It’s by far not a certainty; it’s merely theoretical at this point, but as a fan myself I would love to see that happen,” said DeKnight. Given that Pacific Rim is in the future, these films could easily cross over, with Godzilla re-emerging from the depths in their time.
During the official New York Comic-Con panel for Pacific Rim: Uprising, the cast of the film unveiled the first full trailer, giving us a look at what to expect in the film next year.

Jake Pentecost ( John Boyega), son of Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba), has been brought back into the fold by his adoptive sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi), now leading the PPDF, to prepare for the next wave of Kaiju threats.
