While we’ve seen a few set photos, today comes the first official still from the currently in production “Pacific Rim: Uprising” which is filming in Sydney, Australia.
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” star John Boyega appears in the shot in character, the photo first cropping up on his Twitter account. Steven S. DeKnight takes over the helm of the new film which Guillermo del Toro is producing.
Boyega plays the son of Idris Elba’s Stacker Pentecost who sacrificed himself to stop the kaiju at the end of the first film. The sequel is currently slated to open February 23rd 2018.
