The image doesn’t reveal much although it seems that Jake is sat inside of a Jaeger. Last month, Boyega’s co-star Scott Eastwood shared an image on Instagram of the cast and crew:
More great times with this exceptional cast and crew here on #pacificrim The crew in Austrailia is some of the best I've ever worked with. We have amazing cast from around the world, with a number diverse races and nationalities. Stole this moment with two of my awesome co-stars @jboyega_ and @adriaarjona , our fearless leader and director @stevendeknight , our incredible DP @dan_mindel , and legend of a cameraman Chris Haarhoff. And me, making my dumb faces as per usual.
Pacific Rim: Uprising hits theaters on February 23, 2018, and is directed by Daredevil‘s Steven S. DeKnight.
