Courtesy of License! Global, we might have gotten a “first look” at PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING’s primary “Jaegers” AKA “Giant Manned Robots who protect humanity from Kaijus” in the film’s universe!
If anyone evokes “Evangelion”, I cannot deny you the reference, and I would be interested to see if the “final” on-screen versions will replicate these colors, of it they retain their “real-world”-mecha aesthetics, and will choose to rein in my “fear” for the time being…
PACIFC RIM: UPRISING will be directed by Steven S. DeKnight and written by DeKnight, Emily Carmichael, Kira Snyder, and T.S. Nowlin from a story by Guillermo del Toro (who directs the first “Pacific Rim” film). Release is scheduled for February 23, 2018… so there’s still time to “panic”, no worries :p
