Pacific Rim Uprising is coming to theater on March 23, but today Legendary released the Pacific Rim Uprising Official Trailer #2. Like the first trailer, this one also features a remix of Untouchable by 2Pac. There is a noticeable difference in style compare to the first film, as Uprising is directed by Steven S. DeKnight while the original Pacific Rim movie from 2013 was directed by Guillermo del Toro.
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.
There are many cool scenes in the 2 minute, 24 second trailer, as can be scene in the following gallery of still images. Click on the image for full size and easy browsing.
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 (Scott Eastwood from The Fate of the Furious) 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 Charlie Day, Jing Tian, Adria Arjona, and Burn Gorman.
