The New IMAX Trailer For PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING Is Gonna Need A Bigger Jaeger...

Anyone who has doubts about director Steven DeKnight's ability to channel the aesthetic and genuine awesomeness of Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim need not be worried and weary, at least for now. At best, these trailers for Pacific Rim: Uprising are all but selling themselves at this point and fans staking their claim via IMAX next month are sure to endulge this one something fierce.
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.

IMAX has a trailer and it contains more, and bigger Jaeger V. Kaiju action. This might be a lot for a trailer in over two minutes and change but hot damn...
