The second trailer for 'Pacific Rim: Uprising' has arrived.

A second trailer for the highly anticipated Pacfic Rim sequel, Pacific Rim: Uprising, starring John Boyega is now here.

In the film, Boyega plays, Jake Pentecost the son to Idris Elba's character from the 2013 film.

Here's a synopsis of the film via Shadow and Act:

Boyega 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.

Earlier this month, the actor revealed that a comic book prequel to the film would be released two days before the movie on March 21, and that his character in the film is also of Nigerian descent.

Watch the new trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising below. The movie hits theaters on March 23.
