Thanks to License! Global, we have our first look at three of the new Jaegers from the upcoming Pacific Rim sequel. Pacific Rim: Uprising should be a damn good time, especially with Steven S. DeKnight directing under the guidance of visual mastermind and franchise creator Guillermo del Toro. DeKnight’s past work in television was game-changing and his series all felt cinematic anyway – especially Spartacus. As for the appearance of the new Jaegers – they look lean and mean, so I’m stoked. Now let’s reveal a monster shall we?
