A new promo video for PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING is having some fun showing off the new generation of heroes and the massive machines they pilot. John Boyega stars as Jake Pentecost, who attempts to fill the shoes of his legendary father. Jake, who has fallen into a life of excess, will have to straighten himself out in order to lead a new team of pilots as the last best chance for Earth’s defense. That’s easier said than done. But while this new trailer opts to focus on the fun, smash-em-up side of the movie, you can expect Jake to have his own hero’s journey when the film arrives next month.
Also starring Scott Eastwood, Tian Jing, Charlie Day, Adria Arjona, Burn Gorman, and Rinko Kikuchi, Steven S. DeKnight‘s PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING arrives in theaters on March 23, 2018.
