Details of the sequel to Pacific Rim has been somewhat quiet as regards to general news and what to expect in the movie. With the most interesting of the reported news coming from director Steven S. DeKnight, who said that Uprising will explore the backstory of the Kaiju.
But fans can expect more than just a backstory of the horrifying monsters now that John Boyega has opened up about how the sequel will be an upgrade on the original in every way. Boyega says that the new movie will see Jaegers significantly improved to move much faster, increasing the speed of the combat in a big way. According to the actor…
We’ve got better upgrades. The robots are moving much more swift. Yeah, we’re like ballerinas up in there, it’s fantastic.
Now with the size of the Jaegers and Kaiju being as tall – some taller – than skyscrapers, more graceful and seamless movement will make the fight scenes more Human v Monsters than Robots v Monsters, which is mouth watering if you think about it.
