The concept of kaiju is hardly a new one in the realm of cinematic works, with its roots deeply embedded in Japanese film culture, under the sub-genre of “tonkusatsu entertainment”. Perhaps the most recognisable form of it would be Godzilla, arguably the biggest source of influence for many inspired works to come.
In 2013, the Guillermo del Toro-led title Pacific Rim introduced a new spin onto the unusual sci-fi-tonkusatsu troupe, giving audiences an idea of how deadly the evolved kaiju species can get. Giant humanoid mechas called Jaegers are designed to keep them at bay, and this east-meets-west formula, coupled with action thrills, and a big directing name, pushed the movie to great commercial success.
Five years later, its follow-up film, Pacific Rim: Uprising, is finally taking to the silver screen! Starring John Boyega and Scott Eastwood, it promises more adrenaline-pumping scenes as the showdown between the Kaiju and Jaegers reach a new climax, with both sides striking back with bigger, stronger, and faster units.
