Steven S. DeKnight directs Pacific Rim Uprising, the sequel to the epic action-adventure Pacific Rim which Guillermo del Toro created in 2013. With a script penned by Zak Penn, Jon Spaights and Guillermo del Toro, Pacific Rim Uprising will introduce new characters and Jaegers as they combat an evolved Kaiju threat once again for Humanity's survival.

The second trailer for Pacific Rim Uprising debuted a ton of new footage, but also showcased more polished CGI effects. One complaint some fans expressed after the first Uprising trailer debuted was that the Jaegers looked "too clean" and moved "too quickly". Compared to the aged look of the Jaegers in Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, there is a noticeable difference in aesthetic preference, but we do need to take into account that Uprising takes place 10 years after the events of the first movie and like the evolved Kaiju, the Jaeger tech has also advanced dramatically. Despite all that, the new trailer did debut some not-so-polished Jaegers - battle damage littered the bunch and as you can see by the comparisons below, the overall CGI was given a dramatic upgrade as well:

Interesting. Seems the contrast has been bumped up a lot as well, which was seriously lacking in the former trailer.

I THOUGHT something looked different!  The Jaegers really do look far better, more detailed, and even better integrated into their environment in the second trailer.  I bet the finished film features even more improvements.
