Kaiju Beware! The First ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ Trailer Is Here!

“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.”

‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ Release Date Pushed Back A Month

Once again the release date for Steven DeKnight’s ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ has been pushed back, meaning it will now release March 23rd 2018, the same day as Ava DuVernay’s ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ and Lionsgate’s latest ‘Robin Hood’ film. It will also face tough competition from Steven Spielberg’s ‘Ready Player One’, which opens the following week.

The sequel to Guillermo del Toro‘s 2013 hit stars John Boyega, Charlie Day, Scott Easrwood, Tian Jing, Burn Gorman, and Adria Arjona.

The official synopsis for the highly anticipated sequel is:

“2035 – THE JAEGER UPRISING – It’s been ten years since The Battle of the Breach and the oceans are still, but restless. Vindicated by the victory at the Breach, the Jaeger program has evolved into the most powerful global defense force in human history. The PPDC now calls upon the best and brightest to rise up and become the next generation of heroes. When the Kaiju threat returns, we will be ready.”
