After months of hype and promotion, Legendary and Universal Picture’s Pacific Rim: Jaegerng will hit theaters this Friday. This event happens 10 years after the events of the first film.
Charlie Hunnam’s Raleigh Becket is absent, Rinko Kikuchi’s Mako Mori returns to pass the torch to a new generation of Jaeger pilots, led by John Boyega’s Jake Pentecost, the son of Idris’ Elba’s Stacker Pentecost.
The giant mechs will be fighting one another in addition to the giant kaiju’s that somehow remain on Earth. Are these giant monsters still being sent through the breach or are they the last vestiges of the biological warfare waged in the first film? These questions and more will be answered this Friday.
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.
