July 21st, 2017 by Marc Comments

Yes! The first trailer from SDCC 2017 to make us actually shout with excitement!

Many people didn’t like Pacific Rim but we aren’t among them… we loved it! And we can’t wait until John Boyega joins the battle in  Pacific Rim: Uprising next February as Jake, the son of Idris Elba’s implausibly named Stacker Pentecost!


Well now we have a teaser as John Boyega asks us all to join the Jaeger program which seems to include greatly updated machines:

Including a new updated Gypsy Danger, the main Jaeger from the first movie. Also, do they just have one pilot now?

And yes, we noticed the sly dig at superhero movies in the teaser.

Check out out below and enjoy. Expect a proper trailer soon…

You can find out more over on the new viral site at for more details…

A new generation of Jaeger Pilots will stand tall for all humanity. What is a Jaeger? It’s you, times a thousand. Witness the next evolution of human invention, with the unveiling of the Pan Pacific Defense Corps Mark VI Jaeger Program, and visit GOJAEGER.COM to discover if you have what it takes to join the biggest heroes ever to walk the Earth.

One day, the monsters will return.

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….
