I am so excited for this sequel to Pacific Rim. Now you may not know this but I’m a huge fan of giant robots and giant monsters. Oh, you knew that already? I may have mentioned it once or twice. The long-awaited sequel helmed by Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus, Daredevil) takes place ten years after the events the Battle at the Breach and centers around the son of Stacker Pentecost Jake Pentecost. The Jaeger program has been reinstated and now is a global force protecting our planet.
The new posters look striking and now reveal Scott Eastwood will join the cast as Nate Lambert. His badge shows he’s a major and is said by Scott Eastwood to be “the ace of the Jaeger fleet”.
Details are still out but are these two copilots of the new Gypsy Avenger? Both are wearing drive suits in front of the Gypsyor will they be piloting separate ones? I await with anticipation more news on this sequel that I will admit, I get a bit gaga over. Pacific Rim Uprising stars John Boyega as Jake Pentecost, Scott Eastwood as Nate Lambert, Rinko Kikuchi and Mako Mori, Charlie Day as Newton Geiszler, Burn Gorman as Herman Gottlieb and Cailee Spaeny as Amara Namani. Look for the release of the movie March 23, 2018.
