First Set Photos of Pacific Rim Sequel Reveal John Boyega's Character
The first set photos from the Pacific Rim sequel, Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, have leaked, and they give us our first look at John Boyega's character.

In the photos, the Star Wars star is casually dressed with a cut on his face and is running around some wreckage while holding a small, mysterious device in his hand. Whatever it is he's holding, we're guessing that it's of some importance, and possibly holds the key to defeating some Kaiju. Take a look:

In the film, Boyega is playing the son of Idris Elba's character from the first movie. Not much is known about the film, other than that it features almost no returning cast from the previous installment. Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, and Charlie Day are all out for the sequel, though Ron Perlman and Max Martini are returning.  As for the new cast, in addition to Boyega, Scott Eastwood is starring, and the movie appears to be heavily going after its main audience - China - with big name Chinese actors Jing Tian and Zhang Jin; the latter of whom was just added to the cast today.

The film hits theaters on February 23, 2018.
