While not a trailer, its the first look at the follow-up to 2013 original
Are you desperate to pilot giant humanoid robot and fight mammoth Kajus in the midst of a skyscraper laden- city landscape? Well chances are you wont get the opportunity any time soon but the next best thing comes in the form of a new 'enlistment' video from the makers of Pacific Rim:Uprising
The 1 minute clip is narrated by an automated, AI sounding voice that tells us the "Jaeger" is the pinnacle of human invention" over some Eno-like score while close ups of the new mechs are shown to us like it's a sleek ad for an overpriced volvo. Eventually star John Boyega(Star Wars:The Force Awakens) shows up to tell us to join on all the fun.
Pacific Rim:Uprising takes place 10 years since the battle of the beach from the first film. The Jaeger programme has become a worldwide defense force keeping what lurks within the oceans depths at bay. But one assumes the Kaju wiill back, or else..you know....there wouldnt be much a movie.
Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Cailee Spaeny and Charlie Day are in the cast, with Steve Knight in the director's chair.
The movie will hit cinemas on March 2, 2018. What the new clip below:
