Comic-Con 2017 | The 'Pacific Rim: Uprising' Teaser Trailer is Here!

The new film, Pacific Rim: Uprising, comes from new filmmakers who appear to be moving in a different direction, with a different cast of characters, in a story that now takes place ten years after the events of the previous movies. The first teaser trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising, the long-awaited sequel to 2013's Pacific Rim, has arrived.

We don't know much about the plot of Pacific Rim: Uprising yet, but we do know that Boyega plays Jake Pentecost, the son of Idris Elba's Stacker Pentecost; Stacker was the leader of the army in the last film who famously vowed to "cancel the apocalypse". Guillermo del Toro first introduced a world of huge kaiju monsters and the massive man-made robots piloted by pairs of soldiers to fight the creatures in his 2013 film Pacific Rim. Obviously, that means the sequel's going to need some new ones, and now we finally have a good look at the robots joining the Gipsy Avenger in Uprising-and my god are the wonderful.

Creator Guillermo del Toro first announced plans for a sequel back in 2014, and after many delays, it is finally slated to premiere on February 28, 2018.

Majority favors Dems in midterm congressional races
By 64 percent to 30 percent, more prefer Democrats as a check against Trump than Republicans who will support Trump's agenda. In comparison, around 60% voted in the 2016 presidential election and around 61% in the 2012 presidential election.

Despite being a somewhat gorgeous love-letter to classic monster and sci-fi films, the fact that Pacific Rim is getting a sequel is still kind of surprising.

They're being replaced by the likes of John Boyega and Scott Eastwood (although Rinko Kikuchi, Burn Gorham and Charlie Day will be back), with Daredevil and Spartacus producer Steven S. DeKnight making his feature directorial debut with the movie.

"A new generation of Jaeger Pilots will stand tall for all humanity".
