John Boyega & his cool jacket revealed in Pacific Rim: Maelstrom set photos

Pacific Rim: Maelstrom John Boyega

Whether you're facing off against stormtroopers or Kaiju, your best line of defense is typically a snazzy jacket. Those without snazzy jackets, well, I believe we call them cannon fodder. Production on PACIFIC RIM: MAELSTROM kicked off in Sydney, Australia earlier this month and thanks to The Daily Telegraph, we've got our first look at John Boyega on the set of the Steven S. DeKnight film. Although they don't reveal anything particularly shocking, I've included just a few of the PACIFIC RIM: MAELSTROM set photos below for your viewing pleasure.

In addition to John Boyega and his cool jacket, the photos show Boyega's character (who is the son of Idris Elba's Stacker Pentecost from the first film) racing through what appears to be a makeshift shelter (possibly post-Kaiju attack) while clutching a small piece of tech. The PACIFIC RIM sequel wasn't always a sure thing as it had to be rescued from the brink of death on more than one occasion, but now that it's actually filming, we can probably uncross those fingers. MAELSTROM also stars Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Jing Tiang, Zhang Jin and more.

PACIFIC RIM: MAELSTROM is set for a February 23, 2018 release.

Extra Tidbit: Movie stars make almost anything look good; put that shit on me and I'd resemble a homeless nerd in ill-fitting boots.

Screw the jacket. Love the haircut

His jacket in the first one was better. This just looks good because of the hoodie underneath. I love that they changed his hair tho. Much better than the generic haircut from Pt 1. (Stormtroopers can't afford nice things)

Nothing fancy about the jacket, he's just wearing a ratty hoodie underneath it.
I thought the original was okay and hope they can do something impressive with the sequel. No problem in theory with the monsters v robots concept.

I'm hoping that in this scene our hotheaded young runt, who at first rejected his father's legacy, runs through a kaiju attack then stumbled upon a functioning well armed decomissioned jaeger and use it against the kaiju. Because that would be so Gundam.

Cool

I actually wasn't the biggest fan of the original, but I know that it has it's fans so I'm glad that the sequel actual came together. Also, anything that can help establish John Boyega or Daisy Ridley as bone fide stars and not just the next Mark Hammil/Hayden Christensen is welcome in my book.

Since the original cast doesn't seem to be returning, I have no interest in this at all. And I am a huge fan of the first Pacific Rim.

So you haven't seen a lick of footage and you're already tapping out despite it being written by Guillermo Del Toro. Being directed by Spartacus/Daredevil S1 Showrunner Steven DeKnight and it had returning cast members (guess you didn't do too much research) Max Martini. Ron Perlman and a few other unnannounced.

Ummmm Okay :)

I had a bad day at work and feel indifferent to everything. Anybody's opinion that differs from mine triggers me, and I must write a sarcastic response to how wrong your opinion is. This helps me cope with my existence and get me through the remainder of my night. Now if you'll excuse me, I must go to another article about a movie I enjoy, and type the same thing to other commenters. This brings me satisfaction. I'm going to end this with a smiley face to show that I'm kind and you'll give me

If you need someone to talk to, i'm here for you. I'm a nice guy :)

Yet no Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Clifton Collins Jr, Rinko Kikuchi, and/or Burn Gorman??? Seems like the ratio is off.

Charlie Hunnam was never coming back. Rinko Kikuchi (who cares) however I wouldn't speak to quickly about Charlie Day/Burn Gorman ;) or Clifton Collins Jr.

The first movie is terrible, and it's the cast that ruin it, I'm glad this is a reboot!
