Pacific Rim: Uprising Wraps – Won’t Be Long Now
March 29, 2017 - Movies, Sci-fi,
Earth continues it's war with the Kaiju
Can’t believe it actually got off the ground in the first place, but thankfully Pacific Rim: Uprising is a wrap and it won’t be long now before the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim arrives. Only 300 short days away… Celebrating the six month long shoot, John Boyega shared this photo on Twitter.

John Boyega and Scott Eastwood are new Jaeger pilots this time around. Boyega will play the son of Idris Elba’s character from the original film. While we don’t know Eastwood’s character yet we hear Charlie Day (confirmed), Burn Gorman, and potentially Rinko Kikuchi will all be returning to fight the Kaiju. We also know via Pacific Rim 2 Movie that Jaegers are getting an update, but will have the same basic mega-robot, Nuclear Vortex Turbine powered attitude.
Written by Guillermo del Toro and directed by Steven S. DeKnight our favorite gigantic ocean monster film returns on February 23rd, 2018.
