Hey, remember Pacific Rim? Guillermo del Toro‘s action-adventure featuring robots and giant kaiju monsters battling it out in various major metropolitan areas? Charlie Day as the quirky nerd scientist character? Well, they’re doing another one, and a trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising can now be viewed for your own entertainment and/or scrutiny.
One thing I remember about the first Pacific Rim movie is people complaining that most/all of the action scenes were staged at night, lending a murky quality to the special effects and fight choreography. The trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising appears to address those concerns, with its fights taking place in clear, Bong Joon-ho style daylight.
Check out the trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising, which is NOT directed or written by del Toro, below. And if you want, you can take a look at the movie’s official site here, in advance of its March 23rd, 2018 release.
