Possible, but I don't remember it being shown quite that way (admittedly, I only saw the film once, and that was about half a year ago). It wasn't quite a straight cut or a match cut, but I didn't get the impression that much time had passed between the baby's death and the bespectacled man going to help the Always Sunny guy.

A more likely answer is alien physiology .

There was lots of time for math guy to get there.

Flow of events by scene:

Battle ends and Gipsy is safe; Pentacost tells math guy to help glasses guy.
Amount of time passes while the black market guys are slowly working, glasses guy asks what's taking so long; Kaiju baby comes out, attacks, dies.
Math guy is seen with glasses guy while glasses guy sets up drift with Kaiju baby.

And after the first city was wiped out and all their attacks doing nothing, the government would have gotten ahead of the ball with evacuating, and gotten people out of the cities in its path even sooner.
Yes, and things going so well is completely unrealistic, is the point I'm trying to make. (Of course, it's a movie about giant monsters fighting giant robots, so who cares?) Still, if one's going to nitpick as the sins guys did, then yes, the death toll is absurdly low.

I'm not saying the evacuation goes well, but people trampling each other when there's no immediate danger isn't a law of life either. They'll be rushing and probably panicking, but a mad dash for the exits like in Dante's Peak when the mountain first pops would be extreme when there's nothing actually happening yet.

Indeed. Since it's such an incredible event, people would be slow to get started. Even for well understood natural disasters, you'll find plenty of people who insist on staying home. Until it's too late. And then they trample each other.

Besides, I doubt the government would have a plan to evacuate whole cities, so there'd be a lot of confusion among the very people coordinating the evacuation.

AUSTIN — Director Guillermo del Toro is currently working on a script for a sequel to his 2013 international hit Pacific Rim.

While promoting his new FX series The Strain at the Austin Television Festival, del Toro told BuzzFeed that he and screenwriter Zak Penn (X-Men: The Last Stand, The Incredible Hulk) have started work on a screenplay for Pacific Rim 2.

“I’m working very, very hard with Zak Penn,” he told BuzzFeed. “We’ve been working for a few months now in secret. We found a way to twist it around. Travis Beacham [co-writer of the first film, now working on Fox’s Hieroglyph] was involved in the storyline and now I’m writing with Zak because Travis has become a TV mogul.”

While the filmmaker stressed that Legendary Pictures has not formally agreed to put the script into production, he said that he and Penn are working on it as if it will be made one day.

Well as the article pointed out the movie was a modest hit domestically but made a killing overseas (China of all places).

And given how good Godzilla did hopefully that gives a green light to do a sequel.
