After five weekends, “Black Panther” is expected to finally concede the No. 1 spot at the weekend box office to “Pacific Rim: Uprising,” Universal and Legendary’s sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 blockbuster pitting giant robots against enormous undersea monsters.
Taking place a decade after the first film, “Pacific Rim: Uprising” follows Jake Pentecost (John Boyega), son of Stacker Pentecost, the leader of the anti-kaiju forces who sacrificed his life to stop their invasion of Earth. Now monsters are starting to return through to Earth, forcing Jake to live up to his father’s name and stop both the monsters and the traitor that allowed them to return in the first place.
