Pacific Rim: Uprising — TV Spot: 'Plan B'


added: Sun, Jan 21st '18

When human-controlled robots go up against giant monsters, you better believe that there's "always a Plan B" just in case the first plan doesn't pan out.

Watch "Star Wars" star John Boyega as he leads a new generation of Jaeger fighters in a brand-new TV spot for the upcoming sci-fi fantasy sequel "Pacific Rim Uprising."

A follow-up to 2013's Guillermo del Toro-directed action flick, "Uprising" sees Boyega as former Jaeger pilot Jake Pentecost, who is the estranged son of Commander Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba), who died in the original movie while closing up an interdimensional portal, which spared the world from another attack by giant sea monsters. At least, that's what we assumed.

"We thought our parents ended the war. But now, it's our turn to fight," says Boyega's Jake Pentecost who has returned to the Jaeger program to pick up where his late father had left off.

This time around, the film is directed and co-written by Steven S. DeKnight (former showrunner of Marvel's "Daredevil"), who is making his feature directorial debut.

"Pacific Rim Uprising" also stars Scott Eastwood as Boyega's trusty co-pilot with Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, and Rinko Kikuchi returning to reprise their respective roles.

The film is slated to open theatrically on 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.
