Get ready to hop back into some 300ft. robots and fight some aliens in the new Pacific Rim trailer!
In a world where giant robot movies are dominated by Michael Bay, the first Pacific Rim was a pretty pleasant surprise for most of us. Director Guillermo del Toro left The Hobbit franchise (still haven’t totally forgiven him for that yet) to complete a work that he’d been dreaming to doing for a long while. The result was a badass brawl between some very del Toro-esque aliens and even cooler robots.
From the looks of this trailer, we’re going to get something even bigger and better than the first. Star Wars star, John Boyega, ditches the storm trooper gear for an upgrade to kick some alien ass (hopefully more than he did in The Force Awakens…). From the looks of it we’ll be getting some disputes from other Jaegers (the robots), which could add some variety to the franchise. Thankfully, one thing looks to be staying the same: the totally awesome score. Pacific Rim Uprising hits theater March 23rd, 2018.
