PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING promises a pretty significant shakeup from the first film, bringing back a spare few original characters amongst a whole new generation of Jaeger pilots. But it’s not just the cast that’s getting a revamp, the next generation of Jaegers are getting some upgrades of their own.
Directed by Steven S. DeKnight, Pacific Rim Uprising promises to unleash the new Jaeger squad – Gipsy Avenger, Bracer Phoenix, Saber Athena, Titan Redeemer and Guardian Bravo – and they’re showing off the upgraded weapons in a new teaser for the film. Of course, if we learned anything from PACIFIC RIM, it’s that you always go with the sword — pardon, the Chain Sword 2.0.
PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING stars John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Tian Jing, Charlie Day, Adria Arjona, Burn Gorman, and Rinko Kikuchi. Universal Pictures will release the film in theaters on March 23, 2018.
