'Pacific Rim: Uprising' Star John Boyega Posts Picture as Pentecost; Image a Painting or Photo?
"Pacific Rim: Uprising" confirmed one of the hottest stars of today as part of their cast. But the particular celebrity did not leave the fun to the higher authorities, as he took matters into his own hands and posted a picture of the character he is about to play.
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" actor John Boyega revealed his newest outfit for "Pacific Rim: Uprising" via social media, The highly interesting plot that makes the story of the film worthwhile is that Boyega is playing Jake Pentecost, the son of Stacker Pentecost played by Idris Elba from the original "Pacific Rim" title-as he captioned his post "I am Pentecost. 2018."
According to Slash Film, his newly posted image signifies how the actor will indeed be a jaeger pilot as his father was. Despite the photo's questionable clarity, as some may have seen, the image is either a painting or just a blurred picture, but shows the identical outfit that the actor wore in a different picture on-set while shooting for "Pacific Rim: Uprising."
Comic Book reported that Boyega shared artwork for "Pacific Rim: Uprising" in the past, specifically for one jaeger. The same concept will be carried on from the first film, namely the battle for mankind's survival against the kaiju menace, using the aforesaid jaegers to lead them to victory. Such odds was said to be going through the mind of Boyega's Pentecost as shown in the picture, following the "cancelling of the apocalypse" line by his father on the first film.
Boyega is only one of the new stars to enter the cast of "Pacific Rim: Uprising." Scott Eastwood will be in it as well, with Cailee Spaeny and Jing Tian. Those who will be returning include Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day and Burn Gorman, playing significant parts from their first appearance. The second installment is set to grace the screens on February 23, 2018.
