'Pacific Rim Uprising' video urges you to join Jaeger Uprising

John Boyega is ready to cancel the apocalypse again, playing the son of Idris Elba's character from the first film.

Who's ready to get back to beating up on some kaiju? A mock recruitment video seeking Jaeger pilots was released Thursday, heralding "Pacific Rim Uprising," the sequel to 2013's "Pacific Rim." Jaegers, of course, are the gigantic humanoid monster suits worn by two people whose minds are joined by a mental link.

One of the raring-to-go Jaeger pilots is John Boyega of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" fame, playing Jake Pentecost, son of Stacker Penecost (Idris Elba) from the first film. Actors returning from the first film are Charlie Day, Burn Gorman and Rinko Kikuchi, with Scott Eastwood joining the cast.

"Pacific Rim Uprising" is set for a February 2018 release.
