In this edition of Sequel Bits:

Lets kick things off with Pacific Rim Uprising, the unlikely sequel to 2013s Pacific Rim thats coming soon from Legendary and Universal. Empire has a batch of new posters that show off the films new Jaegers, including this one: Gipsy Avenger, a reworked take on the originals Gipsy Danger. Head to that site to see a couple more.

Theres also a new international trailer, which, for my money, is the best trailer Ive seen for this film thus far. It actually makes the movie look like fun, and it seems to fully embrace the ridiculousness of its premise in a way the others havent quite managed. (I also had no idea the Jaegers were going to be fighting other Jaegers, so thats interesting!) Uprising hits theaters on March 23, 2018.

By now Im sure youre all familiar with Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns, a fake movie that turned out to be a Super Bowl ad for Australian tourism. But Chris Hemsworth, who appeared in the ads alongside Danny McBride, says theres a chance Dundee could become a real movie.

If we could find the right story and script we might do it, he told the BBC. While shooting, Danny McBride and I spoke about if it could be a movie. We started to get worried that if this commercial is as good as we hoped its going to be, people are going to be disappointed, were going to have to make a movie. But I had so much fun making this commercial, Id definitely be open to discussions about it.

A real Dundeecoming soon?

This isnt exactly a throne fit for a king, but I still cant wait to see this when it arrives on October 19, 2018.

Heres an image of The Crown actress Vanessa Kirbys character in the awesome-looking upcoming sequelMission: ImpossibleFallout. We still dont have any idea of who shes playing (she has to be more than just a lounge singer, right?), but writer/director Chris McQuarrie told Collider about the evolution of Kirbys character:
