‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ – New Teaser, Jaeger Blueprints and Plot Details

“What Is a Jaeger?”

Following the panel at SDCC,  Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures have released a recruitment video for ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising,’ featuring John Boyega.

Join the Jaeger Uprising by visiting the Go Jaeger website. The site features blueprints and tech specs of the five new Jaegers from the film. Take a look below!

The site’s timeline also confirms that Uprising is set 10 years after the first movie. “It’s been ten years since The Battle of the Breach and the oceans are still, but restless. Vindicated by the victory at the Breach, the Jaeger program has evolved into the most powerful global defense force in human history. The PPDC now calls upon the best and brightest to rise up and become the next generation of heroes. When the Kaiju threat returns, we will be ready.”

Gipsy Avenger honors the heroic legacy of her namesake as the flagship leader of the Mark VI fleet. More than just a Jaeger, she is a symbol of hope to millions.
A Mark V brute that can still run with the VI’s, Bracer Phoenix shoots from the chest, with a centrifugal vortex cannon that is as spectacular as it is deadly.
The sleekest and most elegant Jaeger ever created, Saber Athena is the fastest in the fleet, wielding twin blades in hyper-acrobatic combat.
Built for brute force and armed with a seismic morningstar, Titan Redeemer is the walking wrecking ball of the new fleet.
Designed for combat at range, Guardian Bravo wields the Elec-16 Arc Whip: a proto-metallic successor to the chainsword, and brings a new sophistication to the chainsword’s whiplash move.

Stars John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Attack the Block), Scott Eastwood (The Fate of the Furious, Snowden), Jing Tian (The Great Wall, Kong: Skull Island), Wesley Wong (Buxiude Shiguang, Sorry I Love You), Lily Ji (Skiptrace, Transformers: Age of Extinction), Lan Yingying (Surgeons Story, Empresses in the Palace), Qian Yongchen (The War of Beauties, The Golden Age of the Leftover Ladies), Zhang Jin (Ip Man 3, Kill Zone 2), and newcomers Cailee Spaeny and Chen Zitong.

DeKnight (Marvel’s Daredevil), Pacific Rim Uprising is based on the universe first created by genre film culture innovator Guillermo del Toro and Travis Beacham in the 2013 blockbuster Pacific Rim.
