First 'Pacific Rim Uprising' trailer released at NYCC

We can deduce from several updates in the trailer, and the film's promotional website, that its politics will only feel more explicit to Americans under a Trump presidency.

The original film, directed and co-written by Mexican-American filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro, follows military operations from San Francisco, San José del Cabo, Sydney, Manila and Hong Kong as their leaders pool their resources and strategize as one front.

"We really wanted to explore the universe and look at the first movie and expound on it", he explained. Yet he's still very much affected by what happened in the first movie. "Godzilla movies. To get a chance to play in this world, which GDT executed the first time around, has just been an honor and a thrill". This is business as usual for these creatures - it's what we've come to expect from the interdimensional invading force. It also maybe looks like the Jaegers can be piloted remotely, some of the time at least.

"[It] allows Gypsy to reach out, grab buildings, cars, and hurl them at the kaiju", said DeKnight. The third pilot can drop into the chest and operate giant guns called the vortex cannon. More Jaegers, more spectacle, more fun.

"Built for brute force and armed with a seismic morningstar, Titan Redeemer is the walking wrecking ball of the new fleet". The weapon is "attached to the end of his arm" and is, as DeKnight says, "pretty damn cool".

Guardian Bravo is the final jaeger bot DeKnight revealed.

Then there's "a little guy" named Scrapper, who's been "slapped together" by some of the people "stealing PPDC technology". Boyega told EW that despite the follicle familiarity he has with his father, Jake won't start the movie out following in his dad's footsteps.

Both Hamill and Boyega will be in Star Wars: The Last Jedi when it's released on December 15. However, with less than five months to go until it hits theaters (you know, not that I'm counting), Universal has given us a treat. The two will have a lot to work through when Pentecost returns, as Boyega said that Jake "doesn't want to accept his legendary status, he's a stealer, a hustler, he lives in half a mansion". Burn Gorman returns as Herman Gottlieb. Known by many thanks to his legendary father who gave his life to secure humanity's victory against the villainous Kaiju, he was once a promising Jaeger pilot, but has since abandoned his training and become caught up in a criminal underworld that's as risky as it is alluring.
