The 'Sneak Peak' Screening & Q&A Session with director @stevendeknight
& actors @johnboyega
for 'Pacific Rim Uprising' was held at @event_georgest
on Wed 28th Feb, 2018; thanks to @universalpicsau
for my attendance.
The sequel to Guillermo del Toro's original 'Pacific Rim' centres around Jake [John Boyega], Stacker Pentecost's son, & picks up 10 years after Stacker sacrificed himself to stop the 1st invasion of Kaiju that had emerged from a portal beneath the Pacific Ocean.
With the arrival of a new Kaiju threat, Jake must unite with Mako Mori to lead a new generation of Jaeger pilots, including his rival - Lambert [Scott Eastwood].
The attendees of the Q&A session were shown the 1st 13 minutes of the movie along with 2 other scenes.
From what was shown, it was great to see that the director, Steven S. De Knight, had chosen a slightly different approach to this movie rather than just making a follow-on sequel to a film made by the renowned director Guillermo del Toro. De Knight admitted that it was quite intimidating making a sequel to a movie that not only had its own complete/closed-off ending but also was directed by someone that he greatly admired.
The panel answered questions by @supanovaexpo
hosts Quinny & Bec including live-feed questions from Melbourne & Brisbane.
When Boyega was asked if he would rather have a Jaeger [one of the massive weaponised robots piloted by 2 humans that are connected by a neural bridge] or the Millennium Falcon [the Corellian YT-1300f freighter used by Han Solo in the 'Star Wars' trilogies], he chose the Millennium Falcon; I personally would have chosen the Jaeger & used it to steal the Falcon!!
'Pacific Rim Uprising' is out in Australian cinemas on March 22nd, 2018. ©
