Final Pacific Rim: Uprising trailer delivers Jaeger bombs


No, you alcoholics, the giant robots!

The final Pacific Rim: Uprising trailer shares a great many more plot details than its predecessors. Where they were heavy with awesome music set to shots of giant robots fighting even more giant monsters, this is heavy with plot points ... and music set to shots of giant robots fighting even more giant monsters. But there's more!

It's revealed that Jake Pentecost (Jon Boyega) is a reluctant hero, unlike his father Stacker (Idris Elba). The trailer confirms what earlier trailers hinted: there are rogue Jaegers at loose and our heroes (reluctant or otherwise) will be fighting them as well as the monsters (Kaiju). Young cadets will be pressed into service when no one else is available. Oh, and in case you were wondering, yes, Charlie Day is back as a mad scientist, and will be available to spout random one line zingers throughout.

A lot of standard stuff here: a new generation of heroes that don't want to fight for the cause, but eventually do, bad guys that return in bigger-badder iterations, grandiose pre-fight speeches, and unexpected nemesis of the more human variety getting in the way of what should be the true fight.

That said, the visuals, much like in the original Pacific Rim, look amazing. We're still in.

Pacific Rim:Uprising is in theaters March 23.
