The First Trailer for Pacific Rim Uprising Un-Cancels the Apocalypse Again
Our first look at the Pacific Rim sequel is here, and a lot’s changed since the first movie. There’s new pilots and new robots (with crazy new weapons), but there’s a familiar threat: because the Kaiju are back to wage war with humanity once again.
The trailer introduces us to Jake Pentecost (John Boyega), the son of Idris Elba’s fallen Jaeger pilot Stacker Pentecost, who finds himself at ground zero when the monstrous Kaiju begin re-emerging and laying waste to humanity once more. Which, of course means its time to bring out the giant robots again, and my word are they wonderful.
Pacific Rim Uprising hits theaters on March 23rd, 2018. If audiences are interested in seeing the trailer on the big screen, it’s playing with some showings of Blade Runner 2049 this weekend.
