Legendary Pictures has released a new IMAX trailer for Pacific Rim Uprising, and it's packed full of extremely cool action-packed sequences. This trailer seriously doesn't hold back on any action! It just throws it all at you and hopes that the badass looking battles of the Titans get you excited to see this movie.
Apparently, the film isn't tracking too well and this seems like part of an effort to show you how fun and crazy this movie is going to be. This is two-and-a-half minutes of pure eye candy greatness. I will say that I've heard great things about this movie, even that it's better than the first one.
Buckle up and enjoy the ride as you watch the colossal clash of the Kaiju and Jaegers in this latest trailer!
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.
John Boyega (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) 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 (The Fate of the Furious‘ Scott Eastwood) 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 was directed by Steven S. DeKnight and is being released in theaters on March 23, 2018.
