Pacific Rim Uprising Teaser Has First Look At John Boyega

What is a Jaeger? It's you. But it's you times a thousand.

That's the moral of the new teaser for Pacific Rim Uprising, the sequel to Guillermo del Toro's 2013 sci-fi flick. The Uprising teaser has the premise of a recruitment video in an effort to bring more human fighters into the battle against colossal monsters that emerged from an inter-dimensional portal. To do that, however, volunteers will need to suit up in giant mechs.

Steven S. McKnight (Spartacus) directs this time around while Del Toro produces, and they've got Star Wars: The Force Awakens star John Boyega in tow as the son of Idris Elba's character. Boyega makes an appearance in the teaser, but the giant robots are definitely the centerpiece.

The cast also includes Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny and Jing Tian along with Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Burn Gorman from the original.

Pacific Rim Uprising will hit theaters on Feb. 23, 2018. Take a look at more sci-fi movies that will blow everyone away next year.
