'Pacific Rim: Uprising' Trailer Drops At NY Comic-Con

'Pacific Rim: Uprising' Trailer Drops At NY Comic-Con

Sitting alongside cast members John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Burn Gorman, and Cailee Spaeny during the film's New York Comic Con panel on Friday, DeKnight revealed his hope for a much larger Pacific Rim franchise. After the last straw with Jake she forces him back into the Jaeger program to pilot the Gypsy Avenger.

John Boyega plays Jake Penecost, the son of Idris Elba's Stacker Penecost in the 2013 film.

Nathan is Jake's best friend, but they have to work past their falling-out if they're to Drift together as co-pilots.

Next up was Bracer Phoenix, which DeKnight called "the real brute force".

Saber Athena is the most advanced yaeger in the fleet and a little experimental. "It's the person inside the Jaeger who is super".

When the synopsis of Pacific Rim Uprising was released earlier this week, I pondered how they could continue the story after the apocalypse was cancelled.

From there, the action-packed preview introduces a new generation of Jaeger pilots ready to combat the evolving Kaijus and prevent humanity's extinction. She has two swords she can join together to slice stuff down.

"It doesn't matter where you're from". "The greatest heroes don't accept their legendary status", said Boyega.

However, it seems like this time they have returned with an added feature, a new weapon that makes them even stronger.

"The vision of this movie was not to rewrite what Guillermo del Toro gave, but to build upon and to expand this universe", said Boyega, who also serves as a producer on the movie because he was such a fan of the first film. Wrecking ball arms that also spin while surrounded by spikes may seem like trying to hard I say it's just enough. "He's the tip of the spear".

Trump's "America First" slogan appeals to a large voter base in the United States that believes our nation needs stricter border control, fewer immigrants and nationalistic policies in order to thrive. We see a slew of soldiers arriving via helicopter flanked by Mori Mako and Dr. Newt Geiszler (Charlie Day).

Things look perhaps a bit more Power Rangers here than in the first movie, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. "So that was a real good starting point for me".

In many ways, the future as depicted in Pacific Rim movies is President Trump's nightmare.

While Pacific Rim Uprising won't see Idris Elba return as Stacker Pentecost due to the small issue of his character being utterly dead and reduced to atoms when he detonated the bomb inside of the Striker Eureka jaeger. She bears the name of the famous mech that fought and won the Battle of the Breach.

"To get a chance to play in the world that Guillermo del Toro so beautifully and expertly executed the first time around has just been an honor and a thrill", he said. I basically want it to be the Fast & Furious of the Kaiju genre.
