What is better than a movie about giant robots fighting giant creatures? A sequel to that movie that involves giant robots fighting monsters.
That’s right, if you didn’t know by now that Pacific Rim was getting a sequel you do now.
Pacific Rim Uprising is set ten years after Gypsy Danger gave the Kaiju what-for and the alien monsters that threatened Earth are back.
The story follows Stacker Pentecost’s son Jake Pentecost (played by John Boyega) as he and the incredible Mako Mori (played by Rinko Kikuchi) lead a new team against the Kaiju threat. Take a gander at the trailer below.
The biggest improvement from the last film we can see in this trailer is that we can actually see the Kaiju and the Jaegers. Most of the last film was set at night which made seeing anything a bit tricky.
The trailer also shows Jaegers fighting Jaegers as well as Jaegers fighting the largest Kaiju we’ve seen. Get your popcorn ready folks, this should be fun.
Pacific Rim Uprising is directed by Steven S. DeKnight and hits theaters on 23rd March.
