John Boyega reveals another Pacific Rim: Uprising set photo
Production has just concluded on the upcoming Pacific Rim: Uprising, and star John Boyega has posted one more new photo on location in Qingdao, China. It makes sense that the production would shoot in China, as over a quarter of the first film’s box office ($111 million) came from the country. Check out the full Uprising set photo in the gallery below!
