Several months after we got our first Pacific Rim: Uprising teaser, we have brand new images from the movie. And thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we also have more information on the movie synopsis:
“Set a decade after the events of 2013’s Pacific Rim, the film introduces John Boyega as Jake, the rebellious son of the late Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba), who abandoned his training and became swept up in the criminal underworld. Now, however, he’s given a second chance by his estranged adoptive sister Mako (Rinko Kikuchi) to redeem himself and help save humanity from extinction in a rekindled war against the Kaiju.”
Here’s a closer look at the Jaegers.
Gipsy Avenger, Saber Athena and Guardian Bravo
Gipsy Avenger (center) is described as an “upgrade” from Gipsy Danger in the first movie. It includes new weapons and technology, such as LCD screens and holographic imagery of what is going outside.
On the far left in orange is Saber Athena, who’s the fastest Jaeger and also has “two swords she can join together to slice stuff down”, according to Boyega. Meanwhile, Guardian Bravo (far right) in red has “big electric whips”.
Titan Redeemer is a “mystery rogue Jaeger” with “guns on the chest” that is piloted by three men.
Jake will also reunite with his old friend Lambert (Scott Eastwood) to co-pilot Gipsy Avenger.Meanwhile, a new Pacific Rim: Uprising teaser is scheduled for release tonight (October 6(.
