This March, the Kaiju and Jaegers took over the big screen once again in Legendary Entertainment’s PACIFIC RIM UPRISING, the follow up to the 2013 monster hit PACIFIC RIM. Directed by Steven S. DeKnight, PACIFIC RIM UPRISING stars John Boyega (STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS) who inspires a new generation to become the biggest heroes to ever walk the earth. The epic adventure also stars Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Cailee Spaeny, Rinko Kikuchi, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona and Charlie Day.
The Art and Making of PACIFIC RIM UPRISING showcases the incredible concept art for the film and is filled with a wealth of behind-the scenes insights and imagery. Bringing a whole new generation of recruits, Jaegers, and Kaiju to the screen required the creation of hugely imaginative designs, as well as the casting of a remarkable group of young actors for a groundbreaking international shoot. This deluxe book charts the full process of realizing DeKnight’s expansive vision through a wide range of remarkable visuals and interviews with the key cast and crew.
Also featuring a wide range of special features, including booklets, foldouts, and stickers, The Art and Making of PACIFIC RIM UPRISING is the ultimate journey into the ongoing epic battle between Jaegers and Kaiju.
