Diamond Select Reveals First Look at Pacific Rim Uprising Kaiju



If you’re curious what the kaiju are going to look like in the upcoming giant monster sci-fi action flick Pacific Rim Uprising, we’ve got a rather interesting sneak peek in the form of a Diamond Select unpainted figure. Multi-limbed with a pretty ferocious looking mouth, this is one pissed off creature that I wouldn’t want to come across, even if I had a Jaeger! Check out the photos below.

Directed by Steven S. DeKnight, the film stars John Boyega (Attack the Block, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as the son of Idris Elba’s character in the original, Stacker Pentecost. Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Cailee Spaeny, Ivanna Sakhno, and Adria Arjona co-star.

Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, Jon Jashni, and Guillermo del Toro produce the action adventure film along with Boyega and Femi Oguns under their Upper Room Productions banner. Cale Boyter serves as executive producer.

The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.

John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.” Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious‘ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left. Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.
