John Boyega, who is starring in Pacific Rim: Uprising as Jake Pentecost, has tweeted out a new poster for the film featuring his character and a massive Jaeger. Based on the poster it looks like Jake will be taking on the same Jaeger that Charlie Hunnam’s character piloted in the original. I’m still not sure why he isn’t returning, but it looks like his absence will be filled by Jake Pentecost, who is the son of Idris Elba’s character.
If anything else, Boyega’s character has a killer mustache, which you can see in the new poster above. That thing is about as pimp as mustaches can get, and I’m digging the nod to Idris Elba’s own stache, which he wears masterfully.
Pacific Rim: Uprising is set to this theaters during March of 2018.
