PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING Headed to Home Entertainment!
Screenwriter come director, Steven S. DeKnight, makes his cinematic directorial debut with PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING, the all-new follow-up to Oscar-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 box office hit and from July 4th, you’ll be able to take home this new adventure on 4K Ultra-HD, Blu-ray & DVD.
John Boyega (STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI) 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 has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy. Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious’ Scott Eastwood), 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), returning veterans Charlie Day (HORRIBLE BOSSES), Rinko Kikuchi (PACIFIC RIM), Burn Gorman (THE DARK KNIGHT RISES) and a talented crew of fiercely young cadets.
