New ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ trailer packs a hefty visual punch

Humongous robotic creatures lock horns and high rise constructions are turned to rubble in the new trailer of Pacific Rim: Uprising. The second one by Legendary Entertainment, that surfaced today, promises to take the stakes a notch higher than last time, and visual effects, more gripping.

Helmed majorly by Double Negative, the new clip has VFX written all over it. Featuring breathtakingly ginormous creatures engaging in devastating fights, Uprising teases the return of the much maligned Kaiju threat, while there’s a new Jaeger pilot in Jake Pentecost (John Boyega) who has to spearhead a movement against the former’s invasion and protect the existence of mankind.

The sci-fi actioner in line is plausibly loaded with VFX and CG-created scenes, and has an uncanny resemblance to the Transformers franchise; both in its scale and the stature of machines.

A new war is about to be waged and the Pacific Rim sequel seems to have captured the misadventures through eye-catching visuals tying to complement the gravity of the issue between the two concerned entities.

Produced by Legendary Entertainment, Pacific Rim: Uprising is directed by Steven DeKnight and opens in theatres on 23 March 2018.

‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ trailer to debut at New York Comic Con

The Comic Con bug is crawling its way to New York. But even before it could sting its hoi polloi, an air of bacchanalia has already started to engulf. Reason? Pacific Rim: Uprising is all set to roll out its first look at the New York Comic Con 2017!

To be held across 5 to 8 October, the NYCC will be the next biggest fan convention after the San Diego edition conducted in July. Naturally, the fanfare is just as astronomical and the aficionados are looking forward to some big surprises.

The bigger one remains the official teaser of the second installment Pacific Rim per se, as the makers have promised to show a glimpse of the upcoming sci-fi monster adventure.

The story is set in the aftermath of The Battle of the Breach, and with the Jaeger program becoming the most powerful defense force ever seen. The movie is also set to feature the return of Kaiju, the colossal monsters who wreaked havoc on Earth in the previous film, as they rear their ugly head again.

Whilst the 2013 film fared positively at the box office, expectations are far greater from its sequel. And the upcoming trailer might just set the standards.

Acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro – who produced directed the first part – will serve as the story writer and producer in this sequel.

Directed by Steven DeKnight, Pacific Rim: Uprising is slated for March 2018 release.
