PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING Makes Landfall With Loads Of Jaeger Action And John Boyega Canceling The Apocalypse In The First Teaser Trailer!

If there was any doubt that director Steven DeKnight didn't have his ducks in a row for a feature film debut as paramount and ambitious as Pacific Rim, you wouldn't have been entirely wrong in being worried. Granted, this isn't a dump on the notable showrunner who has done some incredible TV work credits include Smallville, Daredevil and STARZ's Spartacus, while a multi-million dollar sci-fi epic with wide-reaching grasp can be taxing.

Legendary almost lost its footing on it with the 2013 induction from Guillermo Del Toro despite achieving ample box office numbers and a fanbase sizeable enough to be even partly heard by the suits upstairs. And now though, we share a fortuitious moment with the involvement of Universal Pictures, a vibrant cast of diverse talent led by Star Wars franchise principal actor John Boyega who now lands his second major motion picture franchise in Pacific Rim: Uprising, next to Scott Eastwood and Cailee Spaeny, the likes of returning actress and Pacific Rim favorite, Kikuchi Rinko, and a ton of Jaeger battle action to boot!
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 (Netflix’s Daredevil, STARZ’s Spartacus) and also stars Jing Tian, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona and Charlie Day.
The film makes landfall on March 23, 2018 and the first official teaser trailer has emerged with Boyega chewing it up accordingly with a roaring speech of his own to cancel next year's apocalypse! Watch it now:
