Pacific Rim Uprising

Pacific Rim: Uprising Teaser #1 (2018) “JOIN THE JAEGER UPRISING!!!”

Pacific Rim was a lot of stupid, huge fun, but it could have been more.  Charlie Hunan is not a strong lead, and not even the greatest name a character has had outside of the Star Wars Universe: Idris Elba’s Stacker Pentecost, could save it from being essentially a huge B-movie.  But oh there is an uprising….there is an uprising a’coming, people.  And if your last name happens to be Jaeger (which mine does), you are going to play this first teaser trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising every morning like audio cocaine to start your day until the film opens in February 2018.  For full details from Coming Soon, read below.  RECOGNIZE JAEGER PRIDE!!! (Oh, no, this is just beginning! Imma gonna milk this like a yak for eight months!)

Little is currently known about the plot to Pacific Rim Uprising, but the story is said to feature Boyega as Jake Pentecost, the son of Idris Elba‘s character from the original film.

  1. Could have been more? You blaspheme! It’s the single greatest movie ever made about rampaging giant monsters! I have very little hope for the sequel, because where is GDT? Not behind the camera, that’s for sure. He makes b movies glorious, and without him the sequel will NOT transcend its sub genre like the first one.

    1. Gosh I can never understand why the others complain about Pacific Rim. Is there any other movie I missed about giant robots that kick, beat, punch, drag and do other lovely things to various monsters? But without Del Toro there’s in fact little hope.

      Although I admit Boyega is careful in choosing movies ever since amazing Attack the Block by Cornish.

      1. I like PacRim; I just don’t think Charlie Hunan can lead a film (Until he proved me wrong with The Lost City of Z) and I do tend to like it more each time I see it. PacRim2 may not have del Toro, but Boyega is a stronger lead and given that my last name is Jaeger, I’m going to have so much fun hyping this it’s ridiculous. Boyega has been building solid projects and Detroit looks like an Oscar contender.

      2. Honestly, I haven’t seen it. I hand’t heard of Boyega until he was cast in Ep7. Ok, I will watch it, but you watch Lost City of Z. Really underrated film; amazing story, gorgeous cinematography, lazy me, I haven’t written my review, but I’d say 8.5/10. It went under the radar in the spring, but it has Tom Holland, Sienna Miller, and is based off a terrific non-fiction book.
