Meet the New Cast of ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’


Pacific Rim Uprising, the sequel to 2013’s Pacific Rim, will premiere this Thursday, March 22 at O’Neil Cinemas in Brickyard Square in Epping, New Hampshire and at The Point in Littleton, Massachusetts. See it in DBOX at O’Neil Cinemas Brickyard Square or in the Grand DLX Auditorium in Littleton.

In the first film (directed by Academy Award winner Guillermo Del Toro), a former pilot (Idris Elba) and a trainee (Charlie Hunnam) pair up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in an effort to save the world from an apocalypse involving human kind versus monstrous sea creatures.

The second Pacific Rim film takes place 10 years after the Battle of the Breach, with a new threat against humanity’s extinction.

In the sequel, Idris Elba and Charlie Hunnam do not reprise their roles, but audiences are introduced to a new generation of characters and a new threat.
