Pacific Rim: Uprising — Behind-the-Scenes Featurette: 'Tokyo Comic-Con 2017 Reel'


added: Mon, Dec 4th '17

Go behind the scenes of the upcoming giant robots-versus-giant monsters sequel "Pacific Rim: Uprising," starring Star Wars' John Boyega, Fast Eight's Scott Eastwood, and newcomer Cailee Spaeny as the next generation of Jaeger pilots.

The preview, which recently debuted at the 2017 Tokyo Comic-Con, offers new footage from the set of the highly-anticipated action movie, which takes place in a dystopian world where gigantic creatures have continuously emerged from the ocean to wreak havoc on humanity. As a result, a war against the kaiju has evolved into a costly conflict. And the only hope for the future lies in the hands of Jake Pentecost (Boyega), an ex-hotshot Jaeger pilot who is also the long-lost son of the late, war hero, Commander Stacker Pentecost (who was played by Idris Elba in the original Guillermo del Toro-directed film).

Steven S. DeKnight, the former showrunner and writer of the Marvel and Netflix series "Daredevil," is making his feature directorial debut with "Uprising," which is bringing back original cast members Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Burn Gorman.

"Pacific Rim: Uprising" is coming to theaters March 23rd.

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.
