PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING Teaser Trailer, Jaeger Specs and Plot Details!
The first teaser trailer has been released for Pacific Rim: Uprising and it comes in the form of a recruitment video. It gives us our first footage of John Boyega in the movie and it looks like he's ready to kick some Kaiju ass. There was a viral site that was also launched, GoJaeger.com, which has revealed five new Jaegers that will be in the sequel! I included the photos and information on each of those Jaegers below the teaser trailer. But first, here's a little information that gets us up to speed on where the film starts off.
It’s been ten years since The Battle of the Breach and the oceans are still, but restless. Vindicated by the victory at the Breach, the Jaeger program has evolved into the most powerful global defense force in human history. The PPDC now calls upon the best and brightest to rise up and become the next generation of heroes. When the Kaiju threat returns, we will be ready.”
Pacific Rim: Uprising was directed by Steven S. DeKnight (Marvel’s Daredevil) and also stars John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Wesley Wong, Lily Ji, Lan Yingying, Qian Yongchen, Zhang Jin, and newcomers Cailee Spaeny and Chen Zitong.
Pacific Rim: Uprising will hit theaters on February 23, 2018.
GIPSY AVENGER – Gipsy Avenger honors the heroic legacy of her namesake as the flagship leader of the Mark VI fleet. More than just a Jaeger, she is a symbol of hope to millions.
BRACER PHOENIX – A Mark V brute that can still run with the VI’s, Bracer Phoenix shoots from the chest, with a centrifugal vortex cannon that is as spectacular as it is deadly.
SABER ATHENA – The sleekest and most elegant Jaeger ever created, Saber Athena is the fastest in the fleet, wielding twin blades in hyper-acrobatic combat.
TITAN REDEEMER – Built for brute force and armed with a seismic morningstar, Titan Redeemer is the walking wrecking ball of the new fleet.
GUARDIAN BRAVO – Designed for combat at range, Guardian Bravo wields the Elec-16 Arc Whip: a proto-metallic successor to the chainsword, and brings a new sophistication to the chainsword’s whiplash move.
