We're getting closer to the release of Pacific Rim: Uprising and the apathy toward it couldn't be higher. Honestly, the only way you'll know this movie finally got released is that you won't have to sit through that accursed trailer anymore. Make no mistake, I'm a huge fan of the first film. I think it's a brilliant homage to Japanese Kaiju movies and American sci-fi, the kind of genre movie that's just not being made by studios anymore.
This new featurette shows you all the upgrades that the new Jaeger Gipsy Avenger has over its counterpart from the first film, Gipsy Danger. Honestly though, you could put all the laser whips and chain swords and everything else you want in this thing, it's still got cinematic wet sandwich Scott Eastwood co-piloting it and that's never a good sign.
I should really want to see this movie, but there's absolutely nothing about the concept of a sequel to Pacific Rim that interests me. I wouldn't be surprised if virtually the rest of North America agrees with me. China, on the other hand, will single-handedly help this movie make back its budget and P&A. Thanks again, China. You guys are the entire reason we're in this predicament at all. The countdown to never having to hear that Tupac song in another commercial for this movie ends on March 23.
