Eight months out from its release, the first teaser trailer and new details have emerged about “Pacific Rim: Uprising” from Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures.
Steven S. DeKnight (“Marvel’s Daredevil”) helms this follow-up to the 2013 Guillermo del Toro feature in which giant robots called Jaegars help humanity fight back against massive beasts (kaijus) entering our world through a dimensional tear.
The follow-up is set a decade on when the Jaeger program has evolved into the most powerful global defense force in human history. When the Kaiju threat returns, we will be ready.
John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Wesley Wong, Lily Ji, Lan Yingying, Qian Yongchen, Zhang Jin, Cailee Spaeny and Chen Zitong co-star in the film along with five new Jaegers. Sketches of the latter can be seen below.
“Pacific Rim: Uprising” opens on February 23rd.
