Here it is! The first full trailer for Pacific Rim Uprising has debuted and if you were a fan of the first movie, you’re gonna love what this sequel has to offer! This movie looks seriously awesome and there’s no doubt it’s going to be just as fun as the first movie.
I love watching these kinds of films because they take me back and bring out the joy and happiness of my 10-year-old self. Pacific Rim Uprising looks like its going to be a blast! The first part of the trailer does a good job of setting up the story and then it kicks into high gear in the second half and we see a ton of badass giant robot action as they battle giant Kaiju creatures!
The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.
John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.” Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.
Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious’ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left. Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.
The film is being directed by Steven S. DeKnight (Netflix’s Daredevil, STARZ’s Spartacus) and also stars Jing Tian, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona and Charlie Day.
Pacific Rim: Uprising opens in theaters on March 23, 2018.
