The trailer for Pacific Rim Uprising was revealed during the packed panel at New York Comic Con Friday, and it. is. lit.
The trailer got a standing ovation and thunderous applause as it concluded the panel.
The film starring John Boyega as Jake Pentecost will test new conflicts seen in the trailer for the son of Stacker Pentecost, who Idris Elba played in the first film.
The sequel picks up ten years after the original’s climax at Battle of the Breach.
