'Pacific Rim: Uprising' teaser introduces John Boyega's Jake Pentecost

A teaser trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising was unveiled Thursday at San Diego Comic-Con.

It is an untraditional teaser approach, serving as an advertisement for those who want to “join the uprising.” There is also a site set up that you can check out.

Unless dates change, Pacific Rim: Uprising will come out right after Black Panther, during a 5-week period when we’ll get Proud Mary, Black Panther, Pacific Rim: Uprising, and Wrinkle in Time.

Pacific Rim is the last of the group, so we should be expecting a full trailer for it sometime next week.

Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, Jon Jashni, and del Toro are producing the action adventure film along with Boyega and Femi Oguns under their Upper Room Productions shingle.

This second film in the franchise created by Guillermo del Toro (who directed the first film) and Travis Beacham, will see Boyega play the son of the character that Idris Elba played in the original 2013 film, which grossed $411 million worldwide ($300 million was from overseas).
