Pacific Rim Uprising

HBO | 6:00 pm

Director and co-writer Steven S. DeKnight’s 2018 science fiction-action film is a sequel to "Pacific Rim," the 2013 commercial blockbuster from Guillermo del Toro, who remains attached to this follow-up as a producer. British actor John Boyega ("Star Wars: The Force Awakens") stars as Jake Pentecost, son of Idris Elba’s character in the original, who joins humanity in another fight against giant monsters intent on destroying Earth. Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day and Burn Gorman reprise their characters from the earlier film.
