Hot on the heels of the Comic-Con teaser (check it out below) are these four Jaeger posters for Pacific Rim: Uprising, which is coming our way on February 23rd, 2018.
Filming began back in November on the sequel, which stars John Boyega as Jake Pentecost, the son of Stacker Pentecost, played in Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 original by Idris Elba. Also starring are Scott Eastwood (Suicide Squad, Texas Chainsaw 3D), newcomer Cailee Spaeny, Tian Jing (Kong: Skull Island), Levi Meaden (TV’s The Killing) and Adria Arjona (The Belko Experiment), as well as Rinko Kikuchi, Burn Gorman and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Charlie Day, who reprise their roles from the original film.
Director Steven S. DeKnight makes his feature debut with the film, while del Toro remains onboard as a producer, alongside Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, Jon Jashni, and Boyega and Femi Oguns, who co-produce under their Upper Room Productions banner.
Expect plenty of awesome Jaeger vs Kaiju action. I can’t wait to see that mean-looking M-19 Morning Star getting some use.
