NYCC 2017 Pacific Rim: Uprising Trailer
Steven S. DeKnight‘s Pacific Rim: Uprising (2018) movie trailer from the 2017 New York Comic Con stars John Boyega, Adria Arjona, Scott Eastwood, Tian Jing, and Charlie Day. Pacific Rim: Uprising‘s plot synopsis: “The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.
John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.” Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.
Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious‘ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left. Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.”
Pacific Rim had its moments. Pacific Rim was an “Okay” film that missed greatness, especially at the beginning, with some goofy elements, characters, and key narrative moments that should have been upped to R-rating status instead of being watered down to their lukewarm incarnations.
Pacific Rim: Uprising seems better in regards to its predecessor but it also seems like more of the same (slow charging weapons instead of automatic, hand-held long rifles, etc.).
If one nation is building multiple Jaegers, one would assume that the design would be the same (keeping costs lower, design time down, etc.). When the U.S. military seconds a squadron of planes into a fight, the planes are all the same make and model. Each one isn’t different. I know Pacific Rim: Uprising is a movie and not real life but little things like that fracture the reality of the created world.
The new Jaeger pilots are presented as cool individuals, especially Jake Pentecost and the hacker, but they seem far too happy encased in their 100 foot metallic suits, fighting a war for humanity. Their chipper attitudes, demeanor, and countenance are vastly different than the crew of the World War II tank in Fury (more’s the pity).
Pacific Rim: Uprising also stars Burn Gorman, Rinko Kikuchi, Nick E. Tarabay, Dustin Clare, Levi Meaden, Daniel Feuerriegel, Karan Brar, Shyrley Rodriguez, Jin Zhang, and Rahart Adams.
