    Got a text from GoJaeger.com today; entering a code will bring up a War Clock counting down to Friday around 10 am. I read a rumor that if you see Blade Runner 2049 Thursday night, you might get an early look at the trailer. I'm not going just for that, but it's gonna be a nice bonus if I get to see it.

    How is it possible that we're years later and the Jaegers look more like a video game?

    Wait...Jaeger vs. Jaeger fights? bad-guy-looking mofos getting rockets shot at them? Are there humans working for the Kaijus in this one?

    Oh, fantastic, it's been turned into Power Rangers! Can't wait for the inevitable "What if we combine the Jaegers?" "That's impossible!" solution that happens and saves the day.

    Posting this for the future when I come back in March for a "CAAALLED IT."

    ^

    That's a funny remark considering one of the big complaints about the first movie was that it looked like Power Rangers.

    Hm, i thought it didn't look too bad. At least we can actually see what's going on this time.

    Eh, I saw it more as a love letter to sentai action film/TV shows, and this just feels...soulless. I can see the parallels with Power Rangers for sure, it's hard to ignore. Without sentai we would've never had Pacific Rim. But MAN, does the vibe from this second movie just feel gross. We'll see in March whether I have to eat my words or reiterate them.

    First thing I thought when I saw the trailer was "oh, the new Transformers movie". I haven't seen any Power Rangers movie so...

    Anyway, it's not looking good. I think the trailer is the whole movie; at least I hope it is.

    Unless I am missing something here... this looks like a hell of a good time. If you watch the first films trailer, it is pretty similar to Uprising. So pumped for this!

    I just saw the trailer and... yeah... I'm gonna pass. It looks like every other film in comparison to the first one.

    You had me at big robots fighting giant monsters.

    Being honest with myself this probably won't be as good as the first (i freaking loved the first one) but it should be entertaining non-the-less.

    Looks better than the first trailer but I'm not hooked. While I understand that they want to differentiate themselves from the first movie, this is way too much daylight for my taste. And yeah, I hope it's not too much Jaeger vs Jaeger action and that we get to see the other dimension where the aliens come from a bit more. I'll be seeing it for sure but I buckle up for a little dissapointment.

    For what it's worth, the director Steven DeKnight was answering questions on Twitter after the trailer dropped...and I actually asked him about that.

    Random question...was it a conscious thing to make more of the fights in the daytime? Some may feel it makes it too cartoonish, but to be fair that's one thing I feel the first film could've used a bit more.

    Yes. No way to top what Guillermo did at night in the rain, plus wanted to offer something a little different for round 2.

    Oh cool, nice one @octobermidnight! Yeah I get it, but seriously, huge fights at night in the rain... it doesn't get any cooler than that does it? And while it might have been a little too much in the first one I'm not a fan of too much daylight in the second. But what gives... as long as the fighting is well choreographed and I get to see some evil Kaijus I might still enjoy it!

    No I feel you completely. I loved the fights in the ocean especially, when the kaiju rips out of the water and jumps on Gipsy's back...so sick. I also agree with you that it may be a bit much if every fight in the sequel is during broad daylight...it DOES make it look sort of Ultraman-ish lol. I'm more intrigued as to what the story is regarding the jaeger that seems to have gone rogue or fighting the other jaegers for whatever reason. Regardless, 3D IMAX seems to be the only way to go!

    I think having them appear in the daylight so much makes them look super fake/CGI-ish. At least in the trailer. Thats my biggest problem. The darkness and rain added to the realism of the effects in the first one.
