A batch of high quality photos from Pacific Rim Uprising have made their way online via an exclusive first look by Entertainmemt Weekly! The photos show off the film's primary Jaegers in action along with actors John Boyega and Scott Eastwood in character, on set. Along with the photos is an interview EW conducted with John Boyega, you can find excerpts of that interview below:
“Jake is the prodigal son,” Boyega tells EW. “He is a young guy who was on the cusp of greatness in his early days when he was training to be a Jaeger pilot, but he always had a troubled relationship with Stacker. I’m the son he didn’t really talk about in the first film … the product of Stacker’s first love.”
This time, Mako is Jake’s protector, despite their awkward history. “He felt he never lived up to his father’s expectations and so he decided to leave the Jaeger program and start stealing for a living,” Boyega says.
You can read the entire interview over on Entertainment Weekly's website!
