The Plot Details For ‘PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING’

July 20, 2017

Pacific Rim Uprising

Following the debut of the recruitment video for PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING, five new Jaegers will be seen in the sequel!

Here’s info on the jaegers:

GIPSY AVENGER- Gipsy Avengers honors the heroic legacy of her namesake as the flagship leader of the Mark VI fleet. More than just a Jaeger, she is a symbol of hope to millions.

BRACER PHOENIX- A Mark V brute that can still run with the VI’s, Bracer Phoenix shoots from the chest, with a centrifugal vortex cannon that is as spectacular as it is deadly.

SABER ATHENA- The sleekest and most elegant Jaeger ever created, Saber Athena is the fastest in the fleet, wielding twin blades in hyper-acrobatic combat.

TITAN REDEEMER- Built for brute force and armed with a seismic morningstar, Titan Redeemer is the walking wrecking ball of the new fleet.

GUARDIANS BRAVO- Designed for combat at range, Guardian Bravo wields the Elec-16 Arc Whip: a proto-metallic successor to the chainsword, and brings a new sophistication to the chainsword’s whiplash move.

In addition, the websites‘s ‘timeline’ offers a tease as to what can be expected from the sequel and dates itself as ten years after the first film.

“It’s been ten years since THe Battle of the Breach and the oceans are still, but restless. Vindicated by the victory at the Breach, the Jaeger program has evolved into the most powerful global defense force in human history. The PPDC now calls upon the best and brightest to rise up and become the next generation of heroes. When the Kaiju threat returns, we will be ready.”

Starring John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Wesley Wong, Lily Hi, Lan Yinging, Qian Yongchen, Zhang Jin, and newcomers Cailee Spaeny and Chen Zitong.

Directed by Steven S. DeKnight, the film is based on the universe first created by genre film innovator Guillermo Del Toro and Travis Beacham in the 2013 film Pacific Rim.

Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, Jon Jashni and Del Toro, Boyega and Femi Oguns under their Upper Room Productions banner produce. Cale Boyter and Eric McLeod executive produce.

Little is known about the film, only that Boyega will play Jake Pentecost, the son of Idris Elba’s character from the original film.

Pacific Rim: Uprising hits theaters in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D on February 23, 2018.
