Pacific Rim Uprising

Pacific Rim: Uprising’s debut trailer shows off a host of new Jaegers, Kaiju, and characters.

Pacific Rim: Uprising, the long-awaited sequel to 2013’s Pacific Rim, finally showed off its first trailer at this weekend’s New York Comic Con. The trailer runs a little over two minutes and is narrated by Jake Pentecost (John Boyega), the son of Stacker (Idris Elba), who steps into his father’s shoes and leads a new army against the returning Kaiju threat.

Legendary Pictures included a new synopsis with the trailer:

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 is directed by Steven S. DeKnight, and will hit theaters March 23, 2018.
