*** Alternately, [[SonsOfAnarchy Clay Morrow]] is in the Kaiju business, and business is good. And [[Series/TheWire Stringer Bell]] don't give a crap about a one-kaiju day.

InvisibleAdvertising * This trope is the reason why ''Film/PacificRim'' only reached #3 in the US box office. As explained in [[http://www.businessinsider.com/why-pacific-rim-didnt-make-more-money-opening-weekend-2013-7 this article]], Warner Bros. apparently screwed up the marketing and comicbook tie-in was released days before the movie premiered. Fortunately, thanks to word-of-mouth, a sequel is in works though it's now handled by Universal Studios. ** This happens in Japan as well. Despite that Creator/GuillermoDelToro visited the country with Creator/RinkoKikuchi and Mana Asado with the latter being more popular and well-known to the native Japanese than former, the movie debuted to #5 in the Japanese box office. It doesn't help that it's in competition with Hayao Miyazaki's [[Film/TheWindRises last movie]]. that [[Film/WorldWarZ Brad Pitt movie]] and Film/MonsterUniversity and there were also few advertistments and lack of movie posters.

* BoxOfficeBomb: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted case.]] [[Did not do well domestically taking in [[http://boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=pacificrim.htm $101 million on a $190 million budget]],]] with every sign of it. However the overseas market unexpectedly pulled in $309 million with a huge $111 million return from China coming as a complete surprise. Including marketing and the less profitable ratios for overseas releases though means [[DoubleSubversion it still didn't become profitable in theaters]]. It was at least an AcclaimedFlop however and did enough business to [[http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Pacific-Rim-2-Sequel-Still-Happening-42160.html warrant a sequel]].

Development Gag moved here from Main.

* DevelopmentGag: "Tales From Year Zero" is ''full'' of references to earlier versions of the script before Creator/GuillermoDelToro became involved with the project; for example, the comic's main character Naomi Sokolov was the film's deuteragonist, traveling the world to find out the reasons behind the Kaiju, and [[spoiler:the simulated death of Yancy Becket by Kaiju tongue was how he actually died]].
