Universal Pictures and Legendary Entertainment have released a new teaser trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising which puts the spotlight on the weapons of the film’s new Jaegers.
The sequel follows John Boyega as Jake Pentecost, the son of Stacker Pentecost played by Idris Elba in the original film — as he picks up his father’s sword and leads a Jaeger uprising against the Kaiju resurgent.

“It has 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. Thrust into this is ex-Jaeger pilot Jake Pentecost, son of the late Stacker Pentecost, who is given a chance by his adopted sister, Mako Mori, to unite with the world and fellow Jaeger pilots to prevent humanity’s extinction.”
Pacific Rim Uprising will open in theaters on February 23, 2018.
5 Reasons Michael Bay Is The Perfect Director For DC’s ‘Lobo’
One of the most “in development hell” movies from DC has been Lobo. In fall of 2009, Guy Ritchie was attached to the project, but he left in early 2010 to work on other films. Two years later, Brad Peyton was reportedly going to write and direct the film with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson starring as the titular character. However, Johnson was soon after announced as Black Adam. Jason Fuchs had been named the screenwriter in spring of 2016 but there still wasn’t a solid director rumored or announced until a few weeks ago when Michael Bay was revealed to be in talks for the project.
Bay has to be one of the most polarizing directors in the last 25 years and I think the criticisms are valid. You’ve got films like The Rock, Armageddon, Bad Boys and Transformers on one side but then you’ve got some questionable choices in those same franchises as well. But Lobo is something that might be a little different and not the typical Michael Bay experience so there are reasons why this movie might actually work with him at the helm.
