Bypassing Pacific Rim Uprising, the sequel to his lacklustre Monsters Vs. Robots film, was perhaps the greatest career move Guillermo del Toro has ever made. Handing the keys to his dystopian kingdom to Steven S. DeKnight, del Toro dived into The Shape of Water and its baker’s dozen of Oscar Nominations.
There is a robot in the distance however, and a decade after the events of the first film life has moved on since the heroic efforts of Idris Elba’s Stacker Pentecost sealed the dimensional rift. Trouble has a habit of popping up over and over however, and it’s now the turn of Pentecost Jr. to save the world.
A new IMAX trailer opens up the world again, and there’s also a fancy looking poster too.
Directed by Steven S. DeKnight, the film has a cast of John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian,
