As promised, the epic sequel to 2016’s Pacific Rim trailer released by Legendary Entertainment, Pacific Rim Uprising is here, this is the official second trailer of the movie starring John Boyega, Scott Eastwood and many more talented actors.Legendary Entertainment has released a new trailer for Pacific Rim Uprising, the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 film Pacific Rim.
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 mecha robots called Jaegers. In Pacific Rim Uprising, directed by Steven S. DeKnight, 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 slew of new characters, including Jake Pentecost (played byThe 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 mecha fight, but potentially some big mech versus mech battles as well. Pacific Rim Uprising will be released on March 23rd, get hyped and stay tuned.
