Like the distant rumble of an oncoming Kaiju, the first trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising has been teased for a long time now and, with just as much destruction, it's finally here.
Set 10 years after the events of the original film, the story follows the rebellious Jake Pentecost (John Boyega), a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father (Idris Elba's Stacker) gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous Kaiju.
Abandoning his training, Jake falls in with the criminal underworld but when a new unstoppable threat is unleased across the world, he’s given one last chance to reclaim his family 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.
Pacific Rim: Uprising will roar into UK cinemas on 23 March 2018.
