Latest Pacific Rim: Uprising Trailer Does It’s Best Transformers Movie Impression

A new IMAX trailer has been released for Pacific Rim: Uprising, and it’s essentially one long clusterfuck of big robots brawling in a massive and expensive looking urban area. This trailer, like the others, has failed to convince me that Pacific Rim: Uprising is an opening weekend type of movie to see. I’ll go when it debuts because my EB duties compel me to, but I have zero faith in this sequel being better, or even on par with the original.

This movie just looks like one big homage to the Michael Bay Transformers movie universe. It’s nothing but robots fighting other overly large beings, as well as each other, so outside of the Kaijus not being Decepticons, this movie has all of the ingredients to be the next action-centric, plot-lite, Transformers film.

Head on up above to see what I’m talking about.

About Pacific Rim: Uprising
