While we've seen a number of the actors in Pacific Rim: Uprising on set, Legendary Pictures has managed to keep the new Jaeger designs under wraps rather successfully. Pacific Rim Uprising wrapped up filming last month, but isn't due out until early 2018. That means there’s nearly a year of post-production work do be done. It’s probably safe to assume the bulk of that work is bringing the new skyscraper mechs to life. It’ll still be some time until we get a proper look at the Jaegers in action, but thanks to this weekend’s Tamashii 10th Anniversary World Tour, we do know what the Gipsy Danger successor will look like, and what it's going to be called.
While the prospect of a Pacific Rim sequel starring Star Wars’ John Boyega is exciting, no one is quite sure what to expect with this one. Guillermo del Toro isn’t behind the wheel, and only a few members of the original cast are coming back. Del Toro recently revealed that the sequel looks a lot different that what he’d imagined — but he also says that that’s a good thing.
For those fans of sci-fi and mechas and giant monsters, news of a Pacific Rim sequel was exciting, to say the least. Pacific Rim: Uprising is currently in production, and we’ve got a lot of cool costumes and ridiculously cool-looking sets to look forward to. Plus, the movie stars none other than John Boyega, who’s been making a name for himself in sci-fi ever since The Force Awakens after he caught our eye in British alien invasion film Attack the Block (which, if you haven’t seen, you should go find immediately). Boyega’s pretty excited about his new movie, as you can see from how many Instagrams he’s been posting. Today he’s shared another look at himself in character as Stacker Pentecost’s (Idris Elba) son.
