PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING International Trailer Is Here!

Fans of Jaegars and Kaijus can now enjoy a two-and-half minute clip out of Tokyo Comic Con featuring new scenes from the upcoming Pacific Rim: Uprising, the sequel to the Guillermo del Toro film from 2013. In the clip, made available last night out of Japan, we see short interviews with the principal cast, including John Boyega and Rinko Kikuchi, as well as additional action sequences from the film. This is the latest in a series of slow releases of publicity and stills for the anticipated but only cautiously optimistic film.

The stakes are known to be higher in the second film, which deal with the evolved Jaegar program and the largest threat yet to humanity’s existence. The movie is set for a release on March 23, 2018. The trailer has interviews with Boyega and Japanese star Kikuchi, who you may remember from Alejandro Gonzalez-Inarritu’s Babel, as well as star Cailee Spaeny. The film is directed by Steven S. DeKnight and also stars Scott Eastwood.

Check out the trailer below and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
