Here’s our first look at Steven S. DeKnight’s sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, Pacific Rim: Uprising!

 

 

I had my doubts. Could you blame me? It’s no easy feat to follow in Guillermo del Toro’s footsteps, but DeKnight looks like he may acheive just that. Pacific Rim: Uprising looks like a complete blast! While it may lack some of Guillermo’s aesthetics, you can still see his influence heavily on this film. And Uprsing may offer an improvement by having what seems to be most of the film’s central battles in daylight to better showcase the kaiju. This movie looks a $150 million excuse for someone to clash actions figures together, and I love it. Uncancel the apocalypse, folks! We need to show up for this one.

Pacific Rim: Uprising brings the fight to us on March 23rd, 2018.
