Opening: “Pacific Rim: Uprising” in Theaters Everywhere (3/23/2018)

If you are a fan of giant monsters fighting robots then you will be excited for the sequel to “Pacific Rim” with Legendary Pictures “Pacific Rim: Uprising”. This film opens today in theaters across the country and we wanted to remind you of it. Let’s go over the premise and casting after the super cool poster below.

The Premise: It has been ten years since the Battle of the Breach and the oceans are still, but restless. Vindicated by the victory at the Breach, the Jaeger program has evolved into the most powerful global defense force in human history. The PPDC now calls upon the best and brightest to rise up and become the next generation of heroes when the Kaiju threat returns. Thrust into this is ex-Jaeger pilot Jake Pentecost, son of the late Stacker Pentecost, who is given a chance by his adopted sister, Mako Mori, to unite with the world and fellow Jaeger pilots to prevent humanity’s extinction.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve enjoyed the trailers for this one, I am planning on seeing it on the big screen myself but not during this opening weekend since I still have so much musical stuff on my plate to attend to. My thoughts are that I catch it at the local Alpine Cinema in my neck of the woods on a matinee. I liked the trailers and I do love the look of the new Jaeger robots and monsters so am on the interested side. Are you folks planning on seeing this one? If you do, please don’t post any spoilers as a comment but do say if you loved or hated it. I will be mapping out a as spoiler-free movie review not long after I catch it. Until next time.
