Join the Jaeger Uprising

The Pacific Rim Uprising Recruitment Video from Comic-Con

For a while, it looked like a Pacific Rim sequel wasn't going to happen.

"Pacific Rim: Uprising" (formerly "Maelstrom") was directed by Steven S. DeKnight, but del Toro still has producer and story by credits.

Pacific Rim was that rare movie that took a well-worn concept, in this case the giant monsters and impractical giant robots of Japanese tokusatsu movies and TV shows, and turned them into something fresh. Danger has a new pilot, John Boyega, but the Jaegers are just as gleefully impractical as ever, what with the swords and the general giant robot tactics.




Earlier saw Legendary and Universal release the Comic-Con teaser, offering a first look at the Jaeger mechs and John Boyega, and a viral site was also launched. While Pacific Rim featured a Jaeger program on its last legs - and, as such, numerous robots were older machines - Uprising seems to be including state-of-the-art technology in its Jaegers.

We don't know much about the plot of Pacific Rim: Uprising yet, but we do know that Boyega plays Jake Pentecost, the son of Idris Elba's Stacker Pentecost; Stacker was the leader of the army in the last film who famously vowed to "cancel the apocalypse".

The video points fans to a new in-universe website, GoJaeger.com, which features a ton of new information about the Jaegers, including blueprints of several brand-new ones. That would prove to be an interesting update on the world established in Pacific Rim - especially if the soldiers are then forced to pair up and use an older Jaeger that needs two pilots.
