Man, not fucking feeling this trailer at all, dude. The palette is a vomitorium of bombastically bright hues. John Boyega’s cheap Idris Elba impression falls flat. The designs of the mechs suck. Entire thing feels like Power Rangers, but with kaiju or some shit. I don’t know. I hope I’m wrong.
Here’s some official looks at Pacific Rim: Uprising, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.
John Boyega dropped a new official image from Pacific Rim: Uprising today. It features the actor looking #broodingaf while proclaiming that he is Pentecost.
Gipsy Danger is back! Somehow! If John Boyega’s image on Instagram is to be believed! Or! At least! Interpreted in that manner!
I don’t know Cailee Spaeny, but I sure do know my excitement for Pacific Rim. Fucking Moses-Finn-Boyega? Fucking Daredevil showrunner helming the project? Sign me up, and add me to the mailing list. I’m in.
Pacific Rim 2 is really coming, folks. It’s really coming! And it’s got itself a date, to boot.
Before John Boyega was Finn, he was Moses (Moses!, Moses! Moses!) in Attack The Block. In fact, the reason I was stoked for his casting in Force Awakens was due to Boyega’s performance in the aforementioned flick. This news, then? The news that Boyega is once again brainstorming with Block’s director? Tremendous.
I was going to see Pacific Rim 2, cause I moderately enjoyed the original. But casting Moses-Finn-John-Boyega in the lead role definitely has me more excited.
Sometimes it hits me that Moses from Attack The Block is a futzing WarStar flick. It staggers me momentarily, before I find myself cracking a maniacal grin.
