Check out a handful of Kaiju-rific clips from Pacific Rim: Uprising

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

The world will once again find itself threatened by the monstrous Kaiju when PACIFIC RIM UPRISING hits theaters in just a few short weeks. The upcoming sequel to Guillermo del Toro's colourful and extremely entertaining original will find John Boyega (STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI) playing Jake Pentecost, a once promising Jaeger pilot and son of the legendary Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba) who gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the Kaiju. When someone or something reopens the Breach and a new breed of evolved Kaiju are unleashed, it will be up to Jake to lead the way and prevent humanity's extinction…again. Although Guillermo del Toro isn't in the director's chair this time around, PACIFIC RIM UPRISING looks to offer another dose of giant robot vs. giant monster action, and that's certainly not something I can complain about. Universal Pictures has released a handful of clips from the film, so be sure to check them out and let us know if you're looking forward to PACIFIC RIM UPRISING in the comments!

The official synopsis for PACIFIC RIM UPRISING:

John Boyega stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.” Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left. Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.

PACIFIC RIM UPRISING will hit theaters on March 23rd.
