Like father, like son as John Boyega suits up in new images from Pacific Rim: Uprising

January 15th, 2017 by Marc Comments


The first images have started to pop up online of Star Wars star John Boyega suited up and filming the sequel to Pacific Rim.

He plays the son of Idris Eba’s character, Pentecost Stacker, in Pacific Rim Uprising – formerly Maelstrom – which is currently filming in Australia.

Not very much is known about the sequel yet but the first movie was a very divisive one but we loved it so next February can’t come fast enough.

Steven S. DeKnight, the man behind Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil, is directing Maelstrom, which also stars Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Jing Tian, and Levi Meaden.

Pacific Rim: Maelstrom is set for release on 23 February 2018.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
