PACIFIC RIM UPRISING gets new trailer


Legendary Entertainment has released a new clip for the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 Pacific Rim.

"Jake, your father always said he wanted you to be a pilot" is the first line you'll hear over the second trailer for Pacific Rim Uprising, directed by Steven S. DeKnight (Daredevil, Smallville).

In the first movie, humanity faced an invasion of giant monsters called Kaiju, which were beaten back by a small band of heroes piloting giant mechs called Jaegers. In the sequel, the Kaiju have returned a decade later.

The film features cast members Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, and Rinko Kikuchi reprising their original roles. There is also a handful of new characters, including Jake Pentecost (played by The Last Jedi’s John Boyega) who is the son of the deceased former leader of the Jaeger corps, Stacker Pentecost (played previously by Idris Elba). Jake has been living in the shadow of his father’s legacy and expectations, and when the Kaiju return, he joins the fight, aided by a group of inexperienced pilots. This time around, the alien Kaiju have been purposely drawn back to Earth by someone with an unknown agenda, setting up not just another massive monster versus mech fight, but potentially some big mech versus mech battles as well.

"This is our time to make a difference,” Mr. Boyega’s character tells his comrades in arms as a version of Tupac Shakur’s “Untouchable” plays during the trailer.

Pacific Rim Uprising opens on March 23rd. Del Toro is producing the sequel.

Check out the new trailer below.

Official synopsis reads:

Jake Pentecost is 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 cities and bring the world to its knees, Jake is given one last chance by his estranged sister, Mako Mori, to live up to his father’s legacy.

Also, the new poster for the sci-fi sequel gives the spotlight to the team of Jaegers.
