With the release of the trailer just around the corner, Universal Pictures released three new posters for “Pacific Rim: Uprising”, the first one unveiled on star John Boyega’s Twitter account Tuesday morning.
Since then, two more cool posters showed up online: one which features Scott Eastwood (Suicide Squad, The Fate of the Furious) in a stance similar to Boyega’s version of the poster, and another with graffiti-type illustration.
The sequel to the 2013 film sci-fi monster film will take place ten years after the events of the Battle of the Breach, when the Jaeger program has become a powerful global defense force, and the Pan Pacific Defense Corps calls upon a new generation of elite fighters against Kaiju threat. Boyega will play Jake, the son of Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba) from the original film.
Joining Boyega and Eastwood are Pacific Rim alums Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, and Burn Gorman. The film also stars Cailee Spaeny, Adria Arjona and Jing Tian. Uprising will be directed by Steven S. DeKnight, who is best known for his TV work on Starz series Spartacus. The original’s director Guillermo del Toro is credited for the story.
Pacific Rim: Uprising is scheduled to stomp into theaters on March 23, 2018.
