Here's a new promotional video for Pacific Rim: Uprising, the sequel to the original post-apocalyptic monster movie where humanity must fight off extinction with the enormous war machines known as Jaegers. John Boyega of Star Wars: The Last Jedi leads the cast of world-saving pilots, but one actor that was curiously left out of much of the movie's footage shown so far was Rinko Kikuchi, whose integral character had been a welcome presence in the first Pacific Rim and whose absence was sorely felt by this viewer when the sequel began rolling out promo for its 2018 release.
Right off the bat, director Steven S. DeKnight (Marvel's Daredevil series), who takes the reigns from creative maestro Guillermo Del Toro (The Shape of Water) for this entry, namechecks some of the godfathers of toku...
The miraculous rebirth of the Pacific Rim franchise, after a less-than-stellar box office for Guillermo Del Toro's original monster mash left fans in a period of doubt, now revives the speculation about what might happen if the city-stomping Kaiju and their mechanized Jaeger nemeses would ever meet up with the denizens of Legendary Pictures' new MonsterVerse. Namely the atomic lizard Godzilla and his furry frenemy of Kong: Skull Island fame. Well, now, we may finally have an answer to those oft-posed questions. Sort of.
The second in what is hoped to be an ongoing series, Pacific Rim: Uprising returns us to the world saved by the pilots of giant robot Gipsy Danger, now focusing on new lead John Boyega, who commands the newly redesigned Gipsy Avenger for more creature carnage.
Guillermo Del Toro's giant monster mash Pacific Rim is the little movie franchise that could, still trucking after unfavorable returns in the domestic box office a few years ago. But stronger international support gives the super-robot actioner a new lease on life with director Steven S. DeKnight's Pacific Rim: Uprising. Let's check out the trailer and hope this opportunity hasn't been wasted.
When word came down that Del Toro would get another chance to pit titanic Jaegers against city-stomping Kaiju, his passionate fanbase let out a sigh of relief, quickly turning to caution as it was announced that the monster maestro would not be returning to the director's chair for this project. Instead, we have DeKnight of TV's Spartacus and Daredevil taking the reigns. Let's ponder the results...
The battle to save a war-torn Earth from a wave of rampaging monsters continues in Pacific Rim: Uprising, and we have three new posters to prove it. John Boyega makes his debut as the new lead hero, piloting the giant Jaeger robot known as Gipsy Avenger. He'll need all the swag he can muster if he hopes to live up to the likes of Idris Elba, his father in this universe and the man who once vowed to "cancel the apocalypse", in Guillermo Del Toro's 2013 original Pacific Rim. Let's take a look at what the sequel has in store.
Charlie Hunnam, who lead the original Pacific Rim is nowhere to be seen here. Sadly, his part in this saga may be over, but in his place is the potential bonus of John Boyega. First introduced to many as dejected Storm Trooper Finn from Star Wars: The Force Awak...
Deadline reported that Steven S. DeKnight (Marvel's Daredevil, Spartacus) will direct the much awaited Pacific Rim 2 film.
The current script for the film is written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) and the film is produced by Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, Guillermo del Toro and Mary Parent with Jillian Share serving as executive producer.
A sequel to last year's modest blockbuster success story, Pacific Rim, has been in development for a while now. It wasn't going to happen right away since earning only a little over half its budget back, but I suppose grossing that same number four times over globally was pretty helpful.
