Robots! Monsters! Sequels! Oh my!
Defying a lackluster stateside run with a global haul led by China, Pacific Rim has spawned a sequel, and here’s its first trailer. Gone are creator / director Guillermo del Toro and actor Charlie Hunnam. In their places are Stephen S. DeKnight (TV’s Daredevil) and Star Wars star John Boyega who plays the son of son of Idris Elba‘s hero from the original film.
In short, what we’re given here is an even more colorful spin on the Transformers franchise, and if you’d told me Michael Bay was the director I’d have believed you. For a spring release, that might not be the worst thing for multiplexes.
Co-starring Scott Eastwood, Tian Jing, Charlie Day, Adria Arjona, Burn Gorman, and Rinko Kikuchi, Pacific Rim: Uprising opens on March 23, 2018.
