In a bit of fun comedic commentary, Honest Trailers has combined Tomb Raider and Pacific Rim: Uprising. I saw both of these movies in the theater and, must like this trailer says, they’re both pretty fine.
But it’s a hot Tuesday, soon to be a holiday, so let’s just enjoy and have a nice day!
Movie trailers keep arriving at a rapid pace this month, possibly to get ahead of Black Panther, debuting tonight. Am I going to have to sit through half an hour of movie trailers tonight? Jeez louise!
Anyway, here’s a new trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising, which is basically just two straight minutes of giant monsters fighting giant robots.
The movie knows what it is and is not ashamed. I can respect that.
I started this week by sharing a bunch of movie trailers, so I figured I’d end the week the same way, because a couple more came out!
Pacific Rim: Uprising gets a big new view with a ton of new information.
Still looks great!
Then we have I Kill Giants. I always meant to read the graphic novel, but I guess I’ll watch the movie instead!
Looks good! Hooray for movies!
Pacific Rim is an awesome flick about people piloting giant robots to fight monsters. I love this genre, and I’m super excited that we have a big budget action movie franchise! So I’m very excited for Pacific Rim: Uprising and the first trailer is equally exciting!
Some concerns, though. I’m all for John Boyega getting more work, but why couldn’t we follow the adventures of Raleigh Becket and Mako Mori? Mako is probably the best female Asian superhero introduced to mainstream audiences in years! She’s going to be in the new sequel, but only as a supporting character. That’s a disappointment!
Also, Boyega is playing the son of Idris Elba’s character from the first one, Stacker Pentecost. Yet his name is Jake Pentacost? Really? With a name as cool as Stacker, you’re going to name your son Jake? Lame as heck!
At least Charlie Day is also returning. Good to know he’s still getting work in Hollywood.
Comic Con news is going to come hard and fast this weekend, and I am the worst possible person to try and keep up with it. Oh my god, you guys, I am so lazy. Regardless, I like to pick and choose the news that interests me most to post about on my blog! As such, here is the first teaser trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising! Pretty neat.
And yes, that’s totally John Boyega!
It’s funny how the movie Attack the Block has since produced two of the biggest names in sci-fi. Watched that movie the other night and it was great.
I don’t know what to expect from Pacific Rim: Uprising. I’m very disappointed that we won’t be continuing the story of Raleigh Becket and Mako Mori directly. Give Mako a franchise and she could become the biggest Asian female action hero in history! She’s going to appear in Uprising in some capacity, but I’m pretty sure she won’t be a lead character again. What a rip!
