A new trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising has dropped a few months after its initial teaser and it cranks the first movie's knobs to eleven.

The trailer has John Boyega as Jake Pentecost, son of Idris Elba's character from the first movie, thrust into a very Jaeger-prominent future. Rather than being humanity's last stand, the human-controlled mechs are the primary force defending against the Kaijus. The trailer also features scenes of jaegers battling other jaegers and a Kaiju evolving to be bigger and badder.

Check out the trailer below and let us know in the comments what you think. While the original movie was directed by Guillermo Del Toro, the sequel has former Marvel's Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight. Pacific Rim: Uprising will be released on March 23, 2018.
