The latest Pacific Rim Uprising trailer features everything we could have asked for in a film about giant robots punching even bigger monsters.
While not much has been revealed about the upcoming film Pacific Rim Uprising, a new trailer sets out to change that. It shows off some of the new Jaeger’s (giant robots) and monsters we can expect to see in the upcoming film which stars John Boyega. Boyega plays Jake Pentecost, son of Stacker Pentecost from the first film, who decides to take up his estranged father’s cause.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Boyega revealed a bit more about each of the new Jaegers that will feature in the film.
The first is Saber Athena, an orange-colored Jaeger who wields two swords. Apparently the most agile of the bunch, she has no trouble slicing those pesky giant monsters in half.
Then there is Titan Redeemer an olive green Jaeger which requires three people to pilot it. It has an enormous wrecking ball like weapon along with gun and missiles that fire from its chest.
There is Guardian Bravo a red and white coloured tank-like Jaeger which wields an electric whip.
Lastly, there is Boyega’s Jaeger Gipsy Avenger, the most powerful of the bunch but also the most difficult to pilot.
Pacific Rim Uprising is set to release in March 2018 and stars John Boyega, Scot Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Jing Tian, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Burn Gorman, and is being directed by Steven S. DeKnight.
