Pacific Rim Uprising To Released in India, today

Trilok Singh, Founder and CEO of YD.

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. The ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’, a sequel to the 2013 film ‘Pacific Rim’, is set to release in India on March 23. ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’, to be brought to the country, will hit the screens in four languages and multiple formats- English in 2D, 3D, 4DX & IMAX 3D format, and in 2D and 3D format in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, read a statement. The film, starring John Boyega and Scott Eastwood, is directed by Steven S. DeKnight.

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 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 by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war.  As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

Jake is 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 become the only family he has left.  Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.

The film, starring John Boyega and Scott Eastwood, is directed by Steven S. DeKnight. DeKnight said that, “I was thrilled when I found out that John was interested. I met with him, and we were both very excited about the possibilities of what we could do with the franchise. He is a classic hero, but can play the hero and the anti-hero at the same time.”

“Jake Pentecost (Boyega’s character) starts out as a thief and ends up saving the world. John has all the qualities you would want for that type of role; he is charming, smart and funny. He brings a real Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones quality to the character.”
