  • The Pacific Rim Uprising Recruitment Video from Comic-Con

Less a teaser and more a recruitment video for Jaeger pilots - the giant robots from the first movie - the clip shows off an updated version of the Gipsy Avenger Jaeger.

One thing should be immediately clear for anyone who saw (and is a fan of) Guillermo del Toro's 2013 flick that featured practical set elements for the massive battle bots: These mechs appear to lack the ponderous pull of gravity that plagued GDT's somewhat realistic machines in Pacific Rim. It seems like Boyega's character will be at the forefront this time around since Charlie Hunnam won't be back to reprise his role as Jaeger pilot Raleigh Becket, and the younger Pentecost will presumably be teamed up with Scott Eastwood (who's now neck and neck with Jai Courtney for the title of Hollywood's blandest leading man).

For a while, it looked like a Pacific Rim sequel wasn't going to happen.

Legendary launched a viral marketing website for Pacific Rim: Uprising called Go Jaeger focused on the Jaeger program, specifically encouraging viewers to "Join the Jaeger Uprising". The franchise narrowly pulled off getting a sequel, and now we've got an intriguing first look at how it's coming together. "Fortunately, 'The Force Awakens" star, John Boyega, was plugged to be the next Jaeger pilot to lead humanity to victory.

It sounds like they want to make sure everything is as close to flawless before they really begin sharing a bunch of details. Atari didn't give any more details and said more info on specs, games, features, price, and release date would come later.

The look came through the reveal of some brand new Bandai action figures revealed at Comic-Con today by Uprising director Steven DeKnight. Is there some competition for the Jaeger corps in the giant-monster punching department?

Boyega has the lead role of Jake Pentecost, said to be the son of Idris Elba's Stacker Petecost from "Pacific Rim".
