Pacific Rim Uprising – It’s time to rise.

It all comes down to the survival of the biggest in new Pacific Rim Uprising trailer.

Today Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures released a brand new trailer for their upcoming Pacific Rim Uprising. The trailer builds upon the story we have been slowly piecing together. Jake Pentecost (John Boyega) will be taking up his father’s mantle to fight the monstrous “Kaiju” now that they have returned to wreak havoc on mankind. Sounds like a grand ol’ time.

Pacific Rim Uprising continues to be a massive love letter to Japanese mecha anime and kaiju films

The official synopsis is 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.
