Universal Pictures’ 3D epic adventure Pacific Rim: Uprising, the follow-up to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 cinematic epic Pacific Rim, has just revealed the banners fo its four hero Jaegers – Gipsy Avenger, Guardian Bravo, Saber Athena and Titan Redeemer.
Check out the banners below and watch Pacific Rim: Uprising in Philippine cinemas Black Saturday, March 31.
Gipsy Avenger. It honors the heroic legacy of her namesake as the flagship leader of the Mark VI fleet. More than just a Jaeger, she is a symbol of hope to millions. Gipsy Avenger has a new weapon called the Gravity Sling which allows it to lift up buildings and cars and launch them at Kaiju enemies. This Jaeger is the most challenging to operate but the strongest
Guardian Bravo. Designed for combat at range, it wields the Elec-16 Arc Whip: a proto-metallic successor to the chainsword, and brings a new sophistication to the chainsword’s whiplash move.
Saber Athena. The sleekest and most elegant Jaeger ever created, it is the fastest in the fleet, wielding twin blades in hyper-acrobatic combat.
Titan Redeemer. Built for brute force and armed with a seismic morningstar, it is the walking wrecking ball of the new fleet.
The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.
John Boyega (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.” Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.
Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious’ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left. Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.
Pacific Rim Uprising is directed by Steven S. DeKnight (Netflix’s Daredevil, STARZ’s Spartacus) and also stars Jing Tian, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona and Charlie Day.
Pacific Rim: Uprising is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
