New ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ movie poster calls for Jaegars to ‘Rise Up’

Universal Pictures and Legendary have released a new poster for Pacific Rim Uprising, with the promise of a new trailer tomorrow.

Daredevil Season 1 showrunner Steven S. DeKnight takes over as director after Guillermo del Toro departed the sequel to make The Shape of Water.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens/Last Jedi star John Boyega plays Jake Pentecost, the son of Idris Elba’s Pacific Rim hero Stacker Pentecost. Jake follows in his father’s footsteps to become a star Jaegar pilot when the Kaiju once again threaten the world with an impending apocalypse.

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.

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 is certainly a different film than its predecessor, and that’s certainly true in this poster, previewing more colors and a vast array of Jaegars.

Pacific Rim Uprising also stars Tian Jing, Charlie Day, Adria Arjona, and Burn Gorman.

Pacific Rim Uprising arrives in theaters on March 23, 2018.

Official synopsis: 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 Force Awakens) 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 is directed by Steven S. DeKnight (Netflix’s Daredevil, STARZ’s Spartacus) and also stars Jing Tian, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona and Charlie Day.
