Actor John Boyega tweets a pic of what I believe is the first “official” (??) image from the upcoming PACIFIC RIM UPRISING feature film (previously titled “Pacific Rim: Maelstrom”) - a sequel to the 2013 Pacific Rim! Along with the following text;
John plays “Jake Pentecost”, the son of “Stacker Pentecost” (played by Idris Elba), who sadly passed away in the first film. Folks’ve previously seen a snap of John wearing his Jaeger armor/suit on-set in Sydney (Pic via @tessalucyy), and I would be expecting the filmmakers to make use of Boyega’s scoail media to pimp the movie LOL
Stay stay tuned to both his Twitter @JohnBoyega and Instagram @jboyega_!
“Pacific Rim: Uprising” is directed by Steven S. DeKnight and written by DeKnight, Emily Carmichael, Kira Snyder, and T.S. Nowlin from a story by Guillermo del Toro. The film stars John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny and Jing Tian, with Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Burn Gorman returning in their roles from the original film. It is scheduled to be released on February 23, 2018, by Universal Pictures." (Wiki)
