Thanks to Universal Pictures Australia, ccpopculture has 5 double passes to give away to Pacific Rim Uprising, releasing in Australian cinemas Thursday March 22nd.
“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 Force Awakens) 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 is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori, who is leading a brave new generation of pilots to unite in a global uprising against the forces of extinction. They are 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 for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale. Pacific Rim Uprising is In Cinemas March 22.”
If you’ve been paying attention to movie news, you’d be aware that Guillermo del Toro just picked himself up a couple of Oscars for The Shape of Water. Only a handful of years earlier, he was responsible for another monster movie that was whole heck more fun: Pacific Rim. For the sequel, del Toro has handed over the reins to Spartacus showrunner Steven S. DeKnight and I’m excited for another round of robots punching monsters while Charlie Day yells about science. (And, I’ll be honest, I won’t be missing Charlie Hunnam; John Boyega is a clear upgrade.)
