Pacific Rim: Uprising — New Trailer


added: Wed, Jan 24th '18

John Boyega suits up and heads to war in a brand-new action-packed trailer for "Pacific Rim: Uprising."

The film, a sequel to the hit giant robots-vs-giant monsters action-thriller, picks up a few years after the events of the Guillermo del Toro-directed original. It seems someone from Earth has mysteriously reopened the interdimensional portal that bridges our world with that of the Kaiju monsters. As a result, the apocalypse has been uncanceled.

The war is back on. And the fate of humanity now rests in the hands of a new, younger generation of Jaeger pilots -- this time, led by Jake Pentecost (Boyega), the estranged, formerly rebellious son of Jaeger hero Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba), who in the original film gave his life to save the world from certain doom.

Also starring Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Jing Tian, and Adria Arjona alongside returning cast members Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, and Rinko Kikuchi who's back as Mako Mori, Stacker's adoptive daughter, former Jaeger pilot and now head of the Jaeger program, the film is directed by television producer/writer/director Steven S. DeKnight (Marvel's Daredevil, STARZ's Spartacus), who also co-penned the script.

"Pacific Rim: Uprising" is hitting 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.
