Universal has released a second official trailer for the sci-fi monster bash sequel Pacific Rim Uprising, the kaiju vs giant robots sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s movie a few years ago.

Full disclosure, I have not seen the original.

Now though, I kind of want to, seeing as it seemingly drove Guilleremo to beastiality, or a fondness for it. Del Toro is back as producer and he had a hand in writing the story, but this time around its director Steven S. DeKnight at the helm. The sequel picks right up after the first movie, and stars John Boyega as Jake Pentecost, the son of Idris Elba’s character Stacker Pentecost.

The film’s cast also includes Adria Arjona, Scott Eastwood, Tian Jing, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Rinko Kikuchi, Dustin Clare, Levi Meaden, Daniel Feuerriegel, Karan Brar, and Jin Zhang. But enough about those people , here’s the second official trailer for Steven S. DeKnight´s Pacific Rim: Uprising 

I might have to dig up a copy of Pacific Rim and have a watch before this one comes out. Im surprised I haven’t watched it already. Kaju vs giant freakin robots,man ! Who doesn’t want to see that ?

The story here seems a little “meh” if Im being honest.

John “Finn” Boyega goes from careless party boy to super duper Jaeger pilot in a few days?

Because some young girl gives him a stern talking to ?
