After five years of waiting, Pacific Rim Uprising is finally hitting theaters. The sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 sci-fi action extravaganza brings Star Wars lead John Boyega into the mix as Jake Pentecost, the son of Idris Elba’s deceased character from the first film. This time, the humans are prepared for the return of the giant, city-demolishing monsters known as kaiju, but are critics prepared for a sequel that is out of the hands of monster master Guillermo del Toro?

The first Pacific Rim Uprising reviews are in, and it sounds like the sequel from director Steven S. DeKnight may not be as good as its predecessor, but fans will still have a good time in the end. However, they apparently have to suffer through a boring first half before they get there. Get the full scoop with the Pacific Rim Uprising early buzz below. Read More »

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 »
