Details on how you could be in Pacific Rim Uprising!

Ever since 1995, when director Hideaki Anno's NEON GENESIS EVANGELION made its debut, I've had dreams of one day piloting my own skyscraper-sized mech. Obviously, we're a long ways off from that dream becoming a reality, if it ever at all. Thankfully, the fine people over at Legendary and Universal Pictures have launched a new contest for PACIFIC RIM UPRISING that will allow two very dedicated super fans to be a part of the action. If I play my cards right, this might be my chance.

For the contest, competitors are being challenged to show their love for the Pacific Rim fandom for the chance to fly to Los Angeles and to appear on screen in the Hall of Heroes, a special tribute within the film that honors the biggest heroes in the Pacific Rim universe. Ten lucky runners-up will also be selected to have their names included in the end credits of the film. To enter, you simply need to show your love for the franchise by way of an elaborate cosplay, fan art, tattoo, written essay, or anything else that you can imagine will catch the eye of those in charge of pickin.

Fans can also join Jaeger Academy where they can sign up for pilot training, gain access to contests, exclusive content and more.

You can check out the announcement video for the contest featuring John Boyega below:

The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in PACIFIC RIM UPRISING.

John Boyega (STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS) 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 (THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS’ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer 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.
