Here Are Some 'Pacific Rim Uprising' Pics To Whet Your Appetite…

… before the trailer hits tomorrow

Yesterday we got our first meaty information on the 2013 Pacific Rim sequel, Pacific Rim Uprising, with the film's synopsis. Tomorrow, we will get the film's trailer. So what can fans do in the meantime? Well, they can obsess over a few images from Uprising released today.

In the images, you can get a glimpse at some of the new characters, including Jake Pentecost (John Boyega), Nate Lambert (Scott Eastwood), and Amara Namani (Cailee Spaeny) and another look at the new mechanized Jaegers in the new movie.

Jake fell out of the Jaeger program and with his father (Stacker Pentecost from the first movie) and turned to a life of crime, living in a community of people who build their own giant mecha. Jake comes into contact with the young Amara in this community, who builds her own robot, and the two get into trouble. One way out of the trouble? Join the Jaeger program. This leads him to re-teaming with his old Jaeger partner, Nate.

Uprising is set 10 years after the first movie and will feature new Jaegers. Boyega gives us the skinny on the new mechs…

Saber Athena: "She's the fastest Jaeger, and she is agile and assigned two skillful pilots who know how to do martial arts" … "She has two swords she can join together to slice stuff down. She's flexible and very fast."

Titan Redeemer: "She is a mystery rogue Jaeger, but is really strong and advanced" … "She has guns on the chest. That Jaeger is, in fact, a three-man rig — one is in the cockpit shooting missiles and bullets from the chest."

Gipsy Avenger: "She's an upgrade model form Gipsy Danger in the first movie" … "She is still a two-man Jaeger and has new weapons and technology. The new Gipsy has LCD screens and holographic imagery of what is going outside. Her gravity sling has improved" … "Pilots are no longer locked into robot by feet. It has a scanning system that makes the drift easier to handle. Gipsy Avenger is strongest and hardest to operate."

Guardian Bravo: "She has big electric whips, but is very stocky and strong."

Though there were no photos of the kaiju today, Boyega did provide some info on them:

"The Kaiju have found a new way" … "They are way more intelligent than we thought they were. The monsters you saw in the first movie were the test run, to see how the planet would hold up. The breach we thought was closed is not their only way into our world. Their plans are more specific. Jake leads the team in trying to build up a new defense against that."

 

Keep your eyes peeled for the Pacific Rim Uprising trailer tomorrow. The movie hits theaters March 23, 2018.
