It’s time to cancel the apocalypse once more in the second Pacific Rim: Uprising trailer

This time it's not just the monstrous Kaiju that are the threat, as humanity fights for survival once again.

The world threatening Kaijus are back but this time they are deadlier than ever and their return to our world might have been orchestrated by humans. Legendary Pictures has released the second official trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising, the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 Pacific Rim, and the new trailer gives us more Jaeger vs Kaiju vs other Jaegers action along with some details about the film’s plot.

John Boyega takes the lead role this time around as Jake Pentecost, the son of Idris Elba’s heroic Stacker Pentecost from the first film who sacrificed himself to help save the world and cancel the apocalypse.

The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.

John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.” Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious’ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left. Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.

Directed by Steven S. DeKnight, with del Toro taking producer role this time around, Pacific Rim: Uprising stars Boyega, Rinko Kikuchi, Scott Eastwood, Caille Spaeny, Jing Tian, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona and Charlie Day. The film arrives March 23.
