atlantic rim resurrection trailer

With every blockbuster movie, there is always a low-budget knock-off version waiting on-demand to confuse your elderly relatives. The victim this time around: Pacific Rim Uprising. The culprit? The people behind the Sharknado movies.

The low-budget production company The Asylum isn’t even waiting until the Pacific Rim sequel hits theaters to release their similarly titled copycat, Atlantic Rim: ResurrectionIt’s everything you love about Pacific Rim (aliens, robots, spunky robot pilots!) but without everything that made Pacific Rim good.

Pacific Rim Uprising IMAX Trailer

Black Panther might be what everyone is talking about this weekend, but next month will bring even bigger action to theaters in the form of the sequel Pacific Rim: Uprising.

The sequel to the 2013 sci-fi action adventure directed by Guillermo del Toro sees the kaiju making a return, and as the new Pacific Rim Uprising IMAX trailer shows, they’re deadlier than ever. Thankfully, humanity has built up their Jaeger army enough for this to be an even fight this time. But it looks like the kaiju also have a few new tricks up their sleeve…

If we’re being honest, this trailer shows a lot of action when it comes to the war between the kaiju and humanity. If you’re already sold on seeing this, it might be best to avoid this trailer and save the fun for theaters. Read More »

pacific rim uprising tv spot

The premise of Pacific Rim Uprising feels like the sequel to Guillermo del Toro‘s gleeful mecha-anime homage is saying, “Anything you can do, I can do bigger and with more bombast.”

And the latest extended TV spot only serves to hammer that in, with the movie promising the biggest Kaiju we’ve seen yet. But if anyone is up to the task, it’s Stacker Pentecost’s (Idris Elba) son Jake Pentecost (John Boyega).
