John Boyega Shares A New Pic From PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING
John Boyega looks ready to fight some kaiju in the first official look at Pacific Rim: Uprising. He plays Jake Pentecost, son of Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba’s character from the first film), and we already know he’s a jaeger pilot like his dad.
The picture doesn’t show him suited up just yet, but he looks like he’s thinking deep thoughts canceling the apocalypse and whatnot.
Boyega shared the first official look at Pacific Rim: Uprising on Twitter.
The image quality is not so great and it’s honestly hard to tell if this is an actual photograph or a painting of some sort. But if you’re a big fan of the original, it’s probably enough to send a thrill down your spine.
While Pacific Rim: Uprising does bring back some characters from the original — including Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi), Gottlieb (Burn Gorman), and Newt (Charlie Day) — it largely focuses on a new cast.
In addition to Boyega, the film stars Cailee Spaeny, Scott Eastwood, Tian Jing, Mackenyu, and Jin Zhang. Steven S. DeKnight (Netflix’s Daredevil) directs, replacing Guillermo del Toro who remains on board as a producer.
Pacific Rim: Uprising strikes theaters on February 23, 2018.
