Robots & monsters clash in new Pacific Rim Uprising trailer

Between the new trailer for RAMPAGE and now this new footage for PACIFIC RIM UPRISING this weekend is shaping up pretty well for anyone who enjoys cities being leveled by giant things. The long-awaited sequel to 2013’s PACIFIC RIM, this new movie promises to deliver all the robot-monster-bashing thrills of the original film, with plenty of new bit and bobs thrown in. The new preview highlights a lot of the upgraded gadgets the Jaeger’s will be using, and how ineffective they may be against the even larger Kaijus that have some tricks up their sleeves (monster sleeves?) as well. The brawls will be off the chain, and if you didn’t think 100-foot-tall robots were flexible enough to do front flips over monsters, then prepare to have your world rocked.

Here is the plot synopsis, if you need one:

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.

PACIFIC RIM UPRISING hits theaters March 23.
