Watch the First Trailer for the 'Pacific Rim' Sequel

The first trailer for “Pacific Rim Uprising” debuted at New York Comic-Con on Friday.

“We were born into a world at war. Between the monsters that destroyed our cities and the monsters we created to stop them, we thought we had sacrificed enough,” John Boyega’s Jake Pentecost narrates in the clip. “But the war we thought we finished is just beginning, and the only thing standing in front of the apocalypse is us.”

From there, the action-packed preview introduces a new generation of Jaeger pilots ready to combat the evolving Kaijus and prevent humanity’s extinction. The sequel picks up 10 years after the Battle of the Breach, and Boyega takes up the legacy of his father (Idris Elba’s character), who sacrificed his life in the first film.

The cast also includes Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Cailee Spaeny, Rinko Kikuchi, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona, and Charlie Day.
